Auto Accident Common Questions & Answers For Chiropractors
Should I see an attorney before I see a chiropractor?
It is important to get examined by the doctor first. The findings from your examination need to be documented immediately after your accident to determine the appropriate health care necessary for your optimum recovery. After your Doctor’s consultation and examination it would then be appropriate to consult an attorney for legal counsel.
If I need chiropractic care, do I need to pay for it myself?
In most cases, the other care insurance company or your auto accident insurance will pay 100% for the cost of your chiropractic care. Our office can assist you in obtaining this information. Using your medical coverage should not raise your premiums.
What if my car only has minimal damage?
Documented studies done by Charles Carroll, M.D., Paul McAtee, M.D. and Lee Riley, M.D. revealed that: “The amount of damage to the automobile bears little relation to the force applied to the cervical spine (neck) of the occupants.” In other words, the damage to the passengers is not necessarily directly related to the damage to the vehicle. Thus all auto accident injuries need to be immediately evaluated by a qualified chiropractor like Dr. Joel Dickson, D.C.
The insurance company has been calling me, what should I do?
Do not sign or settle anything until you have consulted with an auto accident injury chiropractor. If you settle before your injury is fully resolved, you will risk having to pay out of pocket for your care.
I have been the the hospital or have seen a medical doctor, do I still need to see a chiropractor?
You need a doctor who is skilled in providing the necessary care and diagnosis of auto accident injuries. Usually hospitals will check vital signs, make sure there are no life-threatening conditions and release the patient with pain relief medication and muscle relaxers. They normally do not provide healthcare for the underlying injuries that can often lead to future pain. Thus, after your hospital visit it’s best to make an immediate appointment with an experienced auto injury chiropractor like Dr.Dickson, D.C.
What is a lien?
A doctors lien is an agreement between the doctor and the patient. The doctor agrees to not be reimbursed for his services until the case is settled or until the insurance company pays the doctor directly.
Is chiropractic care safe?
Yes. The care is safe and gentle. In fact, we have patients that range from newborn infants, children, to the elderly who receive effective relief of pain and other types of symptoms.
Does your care hurt?
The care is very gentle and most patients start feeling better after the first few sessions.
