What is a personal injury?

A personal injury is a type of injury you sustain due to another person’s negligence.

A personal injury can cause:

What happens during a personal injury appointment?

During an urgent care visit to Frontier Medical Group for a personal injury, your provider offers pain relief if needed. They review your accident history, medical history, symptoms, medications, and lifestyle.

Your urgent care specialist checks your blood pressure and other vital signs. They complete a comprehensive physical exam to look for signs of injuries. 

You might need a urinalysis, blood testing, on-site X-rays, on-site ultrasounds, or other diagnostic procedures to detect or rule out specific medical problems.

Your provider takes notes and fills out appropriate medical forms to document the type and severity of your personal injury for legal reasons.
