If a Specialist referral is required Physicians Group offers Neurology, Injections, Orthopedic and Neurosurgical consults which could ultimately provide surgical intervention, if and when necessary.
Will you file my claim with the insurance company?
Yes. We are very familiar with insurance procedures and will file all the necessary paperwork on your behalf.
What type of insurance do you take?
We accept all types of auto insurance. We do not accept health insurance. Most auto insurance policies cover and will pay for our multi-disciplinary care. Auto injuries are typically covered by your auto insurance company, or through the at fault driver’s insurance policy.
Do I need a lawyer after a car accident?
There is no law requiring that you hire a lawyer after a car crash. Hiring an attorney can be most helpful to get the compensation you deserve and need.
If I was found to be the at fault driver, does personal injury protection still cover me?
Yes, if you own the vehicle, your personal injury protection will cover your injuries. If you do not own the vehicle, but someone else in the household does, his or her PIP insurance will extend coverage to you.
