Medical Treatment for Seasonal Residents
Southwest Florida enjoys an influx of residents during the winter and early spring months. Unfortunately, when these seasonal residents experience an injury as the result of someone else’s negligence, they are often unsure of how to go about receiving the necessary medical care. Often times their primary care doctor is located in another state or they are concerned about starting a therapy plan with one physician only to have to start over again once they return to their permanent residence. Fortunately, this is an issue that our office deals with frequently.
If you have suffered an injury while in Southwest Florida it is important that you obtain the necessary medical care as soon as possible. Unnecessary delay in obtaining medical care could result in complications or worsening of the injury. Prompt medical care can rule out any life threatening injuries and begin the road to recovery so the injured party can get back to their usual lifestyle as quickly as possible.
Our season resident clients often express concerns about either how to continue their medical treatment once they return home or how changing doctors will impact their case. Fortunately, this process is usually very simple. Our office can assist in obtaining all the necessary documents from a treating physician in Southwest Florida so treatment can resume wherever a client calls home. Changing doctors due to relocation will not adversely impact a potential claim. What is most important is that the injured party is receiving the care they need to convalesce as quickly as possible.
