Possible Auto Accident Injury? What to Do Next


auto-accident-injuryWhat To Do When You’ve been Injured in an Auto Accident

Schedule An Appointment Right Away

If you have been involved in a car accident you should make an appointment for a thorough examination as soon as you can.

Often, individuals involved in motor vehicle accidents have minimal or no symptoms until several weeks after the accident.

It’s important to not only receive immediate treatment for any injuries sustained, but also to document the extent of the injuries, before too much time has passed.

Failure to obtain a timely evaluation or appropriate treatment for injuries sustained in a car accident may negate your ability to receive monetary compensation for any future medical bills, pain and suffering settlements, and compensation for work loss.

NOTE: The State of Florida requires that you be examined by a physician within 14 days of the automobile accident to qualify for PIP (personal injury protection) of your automobile policy.  Failure to do so will result in loss of your PIP coverage $10,000 to pay for your medical claims.

  • The extent of your injuries
  • The number of estimated treatments required to treat your injuries
  • If a referral to another medical specialist is required
  • If special tests are required (i.e. MRI, CT Scan, etc.)
  • If you need to take “injury time off” from work (and provide you with documentation for your employer)

The reason auto accident victims choose chiropractic care for treatment is simple – chiropractic care is exceptional in the treatment of soft tissue injuries, especially those involving the spine. Since the most common injuries associated with motor vehicle accidents are sprains and strains of the spinal muscles and ligaments, disc and nerve damage, it’s only natural that chiropractic care is the treatment of choice.
