Motor Vehicle Accident Q & A

  • Sprains
  • Strains
  • Whiplash
  • Head injuries
  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Joint injuries
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Crush injuries

Your injury could be mild or severe and life-threatening in some instances. See the Houston Medical ER specialists at the first sign of a motor vehicle accident injury, even if you don’t experience severe symptoms right away. 

What should I expect during my ER visit?

After being in a motor vehicle accident, your ER provider’s first priority is to offer you pain relief. They then review your accident history, medical history, and symptoms.

The Houston Medical ER team checks your blood pressure, pulse, and other vital signs. They complete a comprehensive physical exam to assess your health and look for signs of injuries, such as swelling, bruising, pain, lacerations, and disorientation. 

Your provider could have you complete balance testing, eye movement testing, or other tests that detect or rule out head injuries.  

What are my motor vehicle accident treatment options?

Some of the options available to you for motor vehicle accident injuries include:

Home remedies

Things you can do at home to reduce symptoms and speed up healing after a motor vehicle accident injury include resting, using ice or heat packs, or wearing a brace or cast if necessary.

Physical therapy

You might need physical therapy sessions, which include stretching and injury-specific strength exercises, to enhance healing after a motor vehicle accident injury. The Houston Medical ER team can refer you to a highly trained physical therapist near you.

Medications

Oral medications, or injections in some cases, can reduce pain and swelling associated with a car accident injury.

Wound care

The Houston Medical ER team cleans and repairs wounds using stitches, staples, or other methods to help them heal properly. 

Fracture care

Your ER provider can repair a fracture or help it heal properly using traction, casting, bracing, splints, or surgery when necessary. 

Breathing treatments

If you struggle to get a full breath of air or breathe well on your own, Houston Medical ER providers offer breathing treatments, such as oxygen therapy and nebulizer treatments.

IV treatments

Houston Medical ER offers IV medications and IV fluid rehydration to hydrate you or deliver medications into your bloodstream for fast absorption. 

Minor surgery

The Houston Medical ER team offers minor surgical procedures to help repair tissue damage caused by motor vehicle accidents. They refer you for hospital care or a specialist if you need more invasive surgery.

Letter of protection (LOP)

Houston Medical ER accepts a letter of protection (LOP) from attorneys that guarantees payment for medical treatment after a lawsuit settlement.
