Auto Accident & Workers Comp Q & A

What are auto accidents and workers comp?

At Interventional Spine and Pain Institute, Dr. Esposito provides comprehensive care for injuries that occur due to car crashes and work or work-related activities. Even though these injuries are similar, there are distinct differences:

Auto accident injuries

Auto accident injuries happen because of a collision. One of the most common types of auto injuries is whiplash. Whiplash occurs when you’re hit from behind, causing your head to snap back and forth rapidly. Other auto accident injuries that Dr. Esposito treats include fractures, dislocated joints, sprains, and strains.

Workers comp

Workers comp is a type of medical insurance provided by your employer. It pays your wages and covers medical expenses if you suffer an injury on the job. As a workers comp provider, Dr. Esposito can fill out the necessary paperwork and submit it to your employer.

When should I see a doctor about an auto accident or work-related injury?

If you experience a car accident or you injure yourself at work, make an appointment at Interventional Spine and Pain Institute right away. This rule applies even if you don’t have any symptoms. 


Certain injuries, like whiplash, don’t always trigger side effects until hours or days later. Undergoing a complete evaluation at Interventional Spine and Pain Institute can reduce the risk of complications and provide peace of mind.

What happens during a visit for auto accidents or workers comp?

At Interventional Spine and Pain Institute, Dr. Esposito tailors treatment to each individual’s needs.

Auto accident

If you were involved in a car accident, Dr. Esposito asks about the crash itself and if you’re experiencing any symptoms. Then he conducts a physical exam and orders diagnostic imaging, like X-rays and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), to diagnose or rule out fractures, dislocated joints, or damage to your soft tissues.


After gathering the necessary information, Dr. Esposito develops a treatment plan to relieve uncomfortable symptoms and help you heal.

Workers comp

If you injure yourself at work, Dr. Esposito asks about the events surrounding the accident, including what you were doing, if anyone witnessed it, and if you reported it to your boss. Then he conducts a physical exam to determine the severity of your injury. 


After making a diagnosis, Dr. Esposito develops a custom care plan. He also fills out paperwork that you can submit to your employer for reimbursement.
