Do You Really Need to see a Chiropractor? YES!
Even a low speed car crash can have severe, long term injuries. If you have been in a car accident, it is important to get a medical evaluation as soon as possible. It is important to see a medical provider right away not only to check for injuries and begin treatment, but also to preserve your rights to seek financial recovery for your accident.
If you were just in an accident, it is important to follow certain steps to ensure your safety and protect your rights.
We have compiled an easy format for you - just follow these are the steps:
1) CALL 911 AND GET THE POLICE THERE IMMEDIATELY
The other person might try to leave the scene, or to come to some type of agreement. Try to prevent that from happening. Even if you don’t feel hurt, get the police and paramedics there right away.
Be careful what you say and what you sign. After an accident, you may not be in in the right frame of mind to be making decisions, and you may say or sign something you regret later. You are going to get asked questions by the police – tell them exactly as you remember it, don’t “over describe.” Just the facts. And whatever you do, don’t apologize or admit guilt; this could hurt your case later.
2) TAKE LOTS OF PHOTOS AND GET AS MUCH INFORMATION AS YOU CAN
Take pictures of all damage to your vehicle and any property, as well as any visible injuries. Document everything you can, including:
obtain names, addresses, and phone numbers of any witnesses
obtain names of the police officers who responded to the accident
photograph the location of the vehicles and the damage
photograph skid marks or other evidence, if available
record the exact location and time of day
note the weather and road conditions, traffic signs, and other relevant information
note the names of anyone who claims responsibility for the accident
3) CONTACT US IMMEDIATELY
We can talk you through the process, and get you started on the necessary medical treatment as soon as possible. The call is FREE – so is the evaluation and the advice. We are here to help, and will work on a contingency basis, meaning it doesn’t cost you out of your pocket – we only get paid if you get paid. Call (800) 580-5975 or fill out the form on the right.
4) CONTACT YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY
You must inform your insurance company of the accident promptly. However, don’t be in a hurry to speak with the insurance companies of other drivers involved in the accident. They may offer you a settlement that is far below what you are entitled to.
Follow these steps to make sure you get the medical care and the full compensation owed to you!
