Car Accident Injury FAQ
1. Can chiropractic care help me with my car accident injuries?
Medical research indicates that people prefer chiropractic care after auto or work injuries over other medical treatments, and it has many benefits. In fact, you are 60% less likely to have permanent disabilities from the accident if you visit your chiropractic doctor following an injury. The research also says that the patient will have to pay 40% less in medical costs with a chiropractor than treatments initiated with an MD.
2. If I don’t have personal health insurance, will my auto insurance be able to cover the cost of treatment for my car accident injury?
If your insurance plan includes Personal Injury Projection (PIP) coverage, which is a type of protection that you add-on to your regular car insurance, it is possible that you are entitled to recover your medical expenses up to a certain monetary amount.
If someone else is at fault in the accident, then the other driver’s insurance may cover the whole cost of your medical expenses.
3. How long will it take for me to heal from my accident?
