3 Ways We Help Auto Injury Patients
There are three main ways that we help auto injury patients.
- Be aware you body heals in three phases, the inflammation phase, the repair phase and the remodel phase. Each phase of healing requires different forms of therapy. Our treatments include the specifice therapy required for each phase of the healing process.
- We document all examiantions, therapy, response to treatment and any permanent injury. All this documentation is vital if you have a claim.
- Our doctors are willing to go to court to testify to the facts of the injury. Be aware many doctors are unwilling to take time out of their office to testify in court.
Who Pays Auto Injury Therapy
There are several methods of payment for auto related injuries:
- Your auto insurance carrier.
- The person at fault auto insurance.
- On occasion you health insurance carrier may cover the treatment for auto injuries.
- Legal claim with a signed letter of protections from your attorney stating that when the case settles the bills for the treatment will be pain.
How Avoid Permanent Auto Injury
After an auto injury your body heals in three distinct phases, the inflammation phase, the repair phase and the remodel phase.
During the repair phase of healing physical medicine is required to aid in the healing tissue call collagen. Physical medicine such as chiropractic during the repair phase of healing helps to increase tissue strength, increase tissue elasticity and decrease tissue sensitivity.
Only physical medicine such as chiropractic treatment helps in the resotration of all three joint ranges of motion: active, passive and joint motion. This prevents the possibility of a permanent auto injury.
How Auto Injuries Compensated
Often my patients ask how their auto injury is paid. Now I”m not an atotrney or giving legal advice however I have treated and have vast experience treating auto injury patients.
Generally speaking auto injuries are compensated by:
- Lost wages, past, present or future as a result of the auto injury.
- Permanent injury such as a disc injury or loss of mobility and nerve damage.
- Pain and suffering in which you lose the ability to perform activities of daily living.
Our doctors document all related information.
When Should You Settle Auto Injury Case
In my opinion you should only consider settling your auto injury claim when:
- You have been evaluated by any relevant doctors.
- Your doctors have issued you a medical release. A medical release states your injury is at maximum medical improvement meaning either the condition is at 100% or the condition will not longer improve and symptom treatment is all that can be expected.
