Auto Accident Injury

Auto Accident Injury Treatment in Colorado Springs

Unfortunately, studies show that most of us will be in an auto accident at some point in our lives. Mix in the changing Colorado Springs weather and that risk increases. The only question remaining, is how bad will it be?

The following are important things to remember if you are ever involved in an auto accident:

1. Seek treatment as soon as possible.

If there is a chance you may be seriously hurt, you should go to the Emergency Room at our local hospital. There they can rule out fractures and life threatening injuries.

2. If you are still experiencing pain and discomfort a few days to a couple weeks later, then you should come to our office to find out if you have any structural damage.

The longer you wait after an accident to come to our office, typically the longer it takes to get you better.

3. Most auto insurance companies have what is called Med Pay.

This means that your bills will be pain up to 100% up to a certain limit. Our office can check that for you.

4. If the accident was not your fault, the other party’s insurance should cover your chiropractic care.

We do all of the paperwork for you.

5. At the accident scene, get as much information on the other driver or drivers as possible.

An accident report by the Police is always helpful, but not required to have a case.

6. You should never settle with an insurance company before you have had us evaluate your injury for you.

If you settle before your injury is fully resolved, you will be completely on your own and will have to pay out of pocket for your care.

7. Dealing with insurance companies can be difficult after an accident. We have a number of reputable and highly qualified Attorneys who we can refer you to for a complimentary consultation.

Hiring a reputable Attorney essentially takes you out of the direct bargaining process with the insurance company and all the paperowrk and phone calls associated with that and lets you concentrate on healing.

8. Injuries sustained after an auto accident if left untreated can lead to spinal degeneration and a host of other problems for years to come. 

We find that many people involved in an auto accident that was thier fault never get treatment/ Thhis tends to be due to the frear that their insurance will go up after a claim is filed. Your personal injury protection is why you have auto insurance in the first place. Many insurance companies will not raise your rates after one or even two accidnets in the same year.

THE INJURIES SUSTAINED IN THE AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENT CAN CAUSE A HOST OF PROBLEMS FOR YEARS TO COME, OR EVEN THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.

You owe it to yourself to come in and get checked!

Testimonial

  • "My back has never felt better. Dr. Harlow took the pain away that I had been living with for over 20 years and didn't even realize it. I just went back again last week and it was another amazing experience. I sleep better than I have in a long time."
