Covering Chiropractic Care with a Personal Injury Claim

Finding a Rehabilitation and Chiropractic clinic that provides proper accident injury treatment and appropriate documentation for your injuries is detrimental to your claim.

Seeking chiropractic treatment after an auto accident or in sudden impact injuries is common and recommended for a fast and natural recovery.

In this blog, we discuss how to prove your medical expenses from a personal injury accident and going about treatment.

If your neck, back, or spine was injured in a car accident and you have made a personal injury claim, the insurance companies of the responsible party are obligated to pay necessary medical costs--or, at least some of it.

If you can prove that your medical expenses were necessary to your recovery, then the insurance company will be responsible for covering your medical expenses, and that includes any chiropractic bills.

How Long Do You Have to see a Doctor or Personal Injury Attorney After a Car Accident?

How Soon Should I Seek Chiropractic Care and Personal Injury Attorney After an Auto Accident? 

Most professionals advise going to a Car Accident Chiropractor immediately, and never wait longer than 72 hours after an accident.

72 hours is regarded as the "reasonable" amount of time by an insurance company.

After this time they may have the right to deny your injury claim and prevent you from receiving the compensation you need. 

A personal injury attorney helps the injured victims deal with the insurance companies and fight for your right to compensation for your medical bills and treatments. It is wise to contact an accident lawyer as soon as you start treating your injuries. 

In this blog, we discuss what actions to take following a car accident regarding medical treatment and legal steps.

Waiting is never a good idea when it comes to a Car Accident Injury. You can never act too soon to seek help after a car crash and should do it as soon as possible.

Ideally, visit a chiropractor within 72 hours of the accident because this is regarded as a reasonable amount of time by insurance companies. Chiropractic medicine is a holistic form of treatment that does not rely on medication, surgery, or other invasive procedures. Whiplash is the type of car accident injury most often treated by chiropractors.

You should see a lawyer at about the same time you see a chiropractor.

You always want to talk to a lawyer before you talk to your insurance company.

Seeing a lawyer at about the same time you see a chiropractor will ensure that your treatments are properly documented.
