What Are Your Next Steps to Recovery?
If you or a loved one has been involved in a traumatic accident where emergency care was a necessity, not an option, you may be too overwhelmed by the immediate physical injuries to understand exactly how this accident is going to affect the rest of your life. We understand. You need time to absorb how serious your injuries are before you can begin thinking about the other aspects of your day-to-day life.
But you are going to have to think quickly. UMC Las Vegas is not designed to provide patients with long-term medical wellness plans. UMC provides emergency stabilization care, and the next steps are left to the patients upon their release. Without any medical direction, there are going to be delays in your medical care, and your treatment options are going to be limited simply because you have no idea where to turn for help.
You aren’t completely healed, but you are going home. Once you are released from UMC Las Vegas, what are the next steps to getting the treatment you need?
At Bertoldo Carter Smith & Cullen, our attorneys will review the circumstances of your accident, and pursue the negligent person who caused your injuries for financial recovery.
This pursuit will provide the financial support you need to create a straightforward path to follow-up care, including appointments with:
- Physicians who will acknowledge the time you need away from work to heal
- Medical specialists that focus on your specific injuries
- Pain management physicians that can keep you comfortable during your recovery
- Rehabilitation and therapy experts who can achieve maximum results with personalized treatment options
- Chiropractic professionals who deliver adaptive care
If your injuries require long-term care, creating partnerships between the injured patient and the best medical professionals available is the only positive way to achieve optimal results. Bouncing between clinics and emergency rooms will only lead to scattered care, not purpose-driven medicine. Allow the accident attorneys at Bertoldo Carter Smith & Cullen to assist in your financial recovery once you have been released from UMC Las Vegas, so your care does not end there.

And if you were one of their patients, you know how quickly they work to provide exceptional care. But you also know that further treatment is something you are going to have to seek on your own.
At Bertoldo Carter Smith & Cullen, our Las Vegas accident attorneys witness the roadblocks to managed medical care every day and know that these obstacles lead to direct delays in medical treatment, which can be very dangerous.
There are many reasons injured people delay their medical care, including:
- Lack of insurance, which leads to very limited medical options
- Absence of a long-term medical plan to guide you through the healing process, so you don’t know where to start
- Costly care that results in out of pocket expenses, mounting debt, and unpaid medical bills
- Your inability to work, which means there is no income, and no money means even more stress
Our personal injury attorneys can help you avoid the pitfalls of managed medical care with a single phone call to our office today. We will provide the help you need to pursue the medical care you deserve.
