Increase Odds to Winning a Personal Injury Claim
When it comes to an auto accident injury, chiropractic treatment is usually always covered by insurance companies. Receiving treatment immediately after an auto accident can help strengthen your case, as it proves medical expenses were necessary. Seeking medical attention as soon as possible after an accident will prevent any delays with your claim. Our professional staff will be with you every step of the way when it comes to filling out the necessary documentation for your claim. There are a few things that you can do to increase your odds of winning a claim.
Seeking Chiropractic Treatment
Seek chiropractic counsel between 24-72 hours after being involved in an auto accident for claim and chiropractic treatment purposes. Taking over the counter pain medications will only reduce pain for a short period of time. Furthermore, you might be masking a more serious injury that needs chiropractic care and treatment. The sooner you seek medical attention, the quicker you can start your road to recovery and the better your outcomes of winning an insurance claim.
The Importance of Providing Details
It is important to know that just because you get chiropractic treatment, it doesn’t necessarily mean your insurance company will need to pay any necessary medical bills. What matters is that you provide as much detail as possible from your treatments, including, but not limited to:
- Symptoms you were experiencing, the exact treatment you were provided, and doctors notes from each treatment
- A detailed billing statement of each treatment
Determining a Settlement Offer
You want to make sure that if or when an insurance company contacts you, you give them accurate information. They will go through the documentation on your case as precisely as possible, to see if there is anything inconsistent or missing. If your statement does not match your treatment details on paper, the adjuster may not make a settlement offer. After an accident, make sure that you see a chiropractor and that you document everything.
