Your attorney's name, phone number, and email
A few things to know before your appointment:
Many auto accident injuries can go undiagnosed. Assuming that you are fine because you don't feel hurt following an accident can be a serious error. Shock and adrenalin can mute or delay the onset of symptoms, allowing an auto accident injury to go undiagnosed. Minor injuries can lead to long term instability and degeneration.
You may seek medical treatment immediately following an accident with a local hospital or your primary care physician. However, seeing a chiropractor can be pivotal to your overall healing, pain relief, and future quality of life! The symptoms of deeper musculoskeletal injuries to your spine can take weeks or even months to manifest. Therefore, it's important to schedule your assessment as soon as possible.
When pursuing a personal injury case through your auto insurance, the at-fault party's auto insurance, and/or an attorney, it is very important to get assessed prior to settling your case. Seeking treatment after settling your personal injury case will result in out-of-pocket costs to you. In most cases, the third-party (at-fault) insurance will have Med Pay, which allows medical facilities, like Restoration Chiropractic, to bill a certain amount for services and treatment in our office.
Dealing with insurance companies can be difficult, especially after an auto accident. Our insurance specialist will communicate directly with your attorney or the liable insurance company so you are able to focus on your health and healing. We also have a reputable, local attorney we refer to for cases that may not be as open and shut.
At your first appointment, you should expect a thorough comprehensive neurological and muscular exam to assess the injuries sustained by the auto accident, along with chiropractic postural x-rays to assess any structural injuries or abnormalities.
Please take time to fully complete the paperwork prior to your appointment to ensure our team has an accurate depiction of your aches and pains so our doctors can put together recommendations to begin your healing process. For insurance purposes, all auto accident claim information must be present for our assessment and exam to take place.
