Should I go to the Emergency Room
It is usually a good idea to seek immediate medical treatment after an accident. Unfortunately, waits in the emergency room are lengthy, frustrating and often expensive.
Emergency Rooms are geared for stabilizing and treating life threatening conditions. Because of the lack of health insurance in in many communities, Emergency Rooms have become the primary treaters for a variety of non-emergent conditions.
Any trauma can be dangerous. Frequently, the full effect of a traumatic injury is not realized for days. If you chose not to go to the ER, make an appointment to see a clinic nearby that specializes in accidents and injuries. It doesn't have to be a 1-800 referral service either. There are many first class clinics in your neighborhood with doctors experienced in treating accidents and injuries.
