Atlanta Personal Injury Attorney – Should I ask my doctor for an MRI?

As a general rule, most doctors don’t just go out and request MRIs right away. Due to the fact that MRIs are such expensive procedures, doctors usually wait to see if more conservative methods can be employed to relieve an accident injury patient’s pain. Conservative methods can include a course of physical therapy such as strengthening and stretching home exercises.

If, however, conservative methods have been used and a patient is still experiencing a great deal of pain, a doctor might request an MRI to further investigate the injury. If you have gone through all of the conservative treatments and are still having problems, you can ask your doctor about the possibility of undergoing an MRI. If your doctor refuses but you think there is still an issue that needs to be resolved before you can fully heal, you may wish to seek a second opinion.

  • Awesome Lawyer and very helpful!

  • Mr. Wilson is truly a very good person who cares about people. I understand he selected this career but I do know he makes many sacrifices to help he’s clients. I am very grateful to have had him as my attorney and if I ever have to use one again (hopefully not) it will be Mr. Wilson.

  • He worked with me. He told me everything. He called me. He gave me all the information.

  • He will be my family lawyer from now until the end because I can trust him.

  • He's just a great guy.

  • He always calls you right back and even if it's on the weekend - he's going to call you back.
