Getting into a car accident can range from being an inconvenience and a pain in the neck to traumatic and life altering. Whiplash, bruises, ligament sprains, muscle strains, pain, herniated discs and broken bones are all possibilities that your body experiences after a motor vehicle accident. A totaled car, inability to work, and dealing with insurance adjusters can be major hassles at a time of vulnerability.
After a car accident, the main concern is for your physical health and getting any necessary medical treatment. When pain is immediate, a trip to the emergency room may be in order. Some patients refuse this due to financial concern, not knowing that it can be covered through auto insurance or attorney settlement. The next step should be to find a certified car accident chiropractor to assess the rest of the damage. Most injuries will not include a broken bone, rather they are connective tissue injuries such as herniated discs, ligament damage, muscle tearing and joint inflammation. These can be evaluated and corrected with the proper assessment, diagnosis and treatment. Make sure to find an accident doctor like a chiropractor that is used to seeing car wreck victims.
One major concern that patients ask me is about the cost of care following their car wreck. Treatment will need to address pain and symptoms, functional restoration and prevention of scar tissue formation. This can take some time. However, what most do not know is that their treatment can be covered either through the auto insurance or a personal injury attorney‘s representation. Every situation is different and we are able to help guide you in making the decision on which way is best in your situation. If a personal injury lawyer is needed, we are happy to refer you to the best. One of the worst things to see is when a car accident victim does not get the appropriate chiropractic care because they are afraid of cost or unaware of how the process works. We are used to helping patients to navigate this process.
Too often, auto insurance adjusters are worried with protecting their company and not with your physical well-being. Their focus is to close the case as soon as possible. Our focus is to make sure that your accident injuries are healed properly and completely, making sure you receive any and all necessary chiropractic and medical treatment along the way. We want you to get on with life and not be slowed down by effects of the motor vehicle accident.
We are here to help you with any situation. We see many car crash victims all throughout the Kyle, Buda and San Marcos area. Feel free to call our office and speak to me personally.
