Halper Family Medicine is a No Fault doctor and can help if you have been involved in a car accident. You might have been a passenger, a driver, a bicyclist, or a pedestrian. Whatever the unfortunate case, you are injured and in need of medical attention. You go to the emergency room and the emergency room doctor tells you that there is nothing wrong with you and to take some Advil and rest up. However you know there’s something wrong and its not that simple!
A no-fault doctor is a physician who accepts no-fault insurance. That’s the insurance that’s covered by either your car insurance (if you were a passenger in a car), or if you were a pedestrian hit by a car. New York State is one of 14 states and provinces that have a No-Fault law.
The best No-Fault doctors work in conjunction with physical therapists. Physical therapists handle the day to day care of the patients. Physical therapists will use heat stimulation to loosen tight muscles, cold pads to prevent swelling, and possibly some strength and conditioning exercises. Physical therapists also play an important for pre op and post op patients. No fault doctors will sometimes prescribe physical therapists to work on a patient to prevent the need for an operation. If the physical therapist can strengthen the muscles around the joint such as a knee or shoulder, then sometimes an operation can be prevented. In a post operation situation the physical therapist has a vital role in rehabilitating the patient with a variety of exercises in conjunction with heat and cold therapy.
