Steps to Take if You Have a Personal Injury From a Car Accident

A DALLAS CHIROPRACTOR CAN HELP WITH AN AUTO ACCIDENT INJURY

We previously discussed what issues someone might undergo when an accident occurs. Elaborating on this, we can look at some statistical information, when an actual injury can occur, and what type of personal injury you may experience during this time frame. Your local auto injury chiropractor in Dallas can help with the pain you feel after an accident.

AFTERSHOCK FROM THE WRECK

The NSA has reported 12 million motor vehicle incidents every year and this number is continuously growing every year. That being said, there isn’t a way to prevent a distracted driver, a road rage incident, or even lack of skill for some drivers. An auto accident is just that, an accident. Don’t stress if you have been in an accident and missed a step. Sometimes after shock has worn off, you can feel pain. But the residual effects of the incident may not occur until much later. Sometimes, these effected vertebrae, muscles, or tissue will be reacting to other impacts of force or even weather change. This is why to minimize the long term impact an auto accident has on your body you should contact your Dallas chiropractor immediately. The sooner they check you out, the sooner treatment can start and begin preventing long term damage.

WHIPLASH FROM IMPACT

So what should you do? Contact your preferred Dallas chiropractor and attorney. As soon as you experience the slightest amount of “whiplash” visit an auto injury chiropractor. Even if someone said those cursed words, “oh, you’re going to feel that in two days!” it is inevitable. Someone will say that one phrase and your entire body will start to hurt almost instantly. Before you experience that after effect, immediately contact your chiropractor. After your initial visit, remember to consider it normally takes about 6-8 weeks to see results or relief and possibly a mixture of treatment types.

IS IT COMMON FOR MY NECK AND BACK TO HURT?

Yes, in fact, most people experiencing pain after a car accident have a spinal column injury. You need to seek treatment immediately. About 10% of all motor incident victims will become disabled. Most injuries that’s occur will be considered discogenic pain or facet injuries. Most of the time if you seek some form of treatment within 24 hours they will be able to diagnose whiplash and not only treat you then but help with any lawsuit case that may occur if you do not heal immediately. You will need to seek all the medical help necessary to heal but this could become very pricey if you have to pay for it out of pocket, so consult your attorney as well. Allow time for these medical expenses to be paid.

WHAT IF I CAN’T AFFORD HELP?

A majority of the time, if a lawsuit results, it could take up to a year or longer to see any expense paid. Working with most doctors, pain management, or chiropractors will be an easy transition. They will ensure that you are able to afford your normal expenses, even communicating with all attorney’s and insurance companies to get the best results for you.
