Personal Injury Doctor Glen Burnie, MD
When you have been in a personal injury accident, you may wonder why your lawyer is sending you to a chiropractor. In fact, immediately following your accident you probably aren’t worried about much else except whether you can safely move, if your passengers are safe, and getting the contact information of the other driver. Wondering what kind of medical help you need and whether you will get compensation for your injuries or personal property damage is probably not the first thing on your mind. However, chiropractors have worked with many patients and their attorneys after a personal injury accident. They know it can be daunting to be going through both medical and legal ordeals at the same time, which is why they strive to help patients out with both.
How can a chiropractor help after the accident?
When you visit an office, you are getting a team of chiropractors who knows how to help patients suffering from a personal injury that was caused by someone else’s negligence. They often help treat injuries such as:
- Muscle Tears
- Headaches and Migraines
- Bone Fractures
- Spinal Damage
When should I see a chiropractor?
Often, patients come to a doctor after waiting weeks after the accident because they were hoping their injuries would just go away. Unfortunately, this is not how the body works, and to rid your body of the pain you should get treatment as soon as possible. They believe it is important for your health to come to our office immediately following the accident so we can diagnose your injuries and get you on the right treatment plan. Further, insurance companies do not want you to get medical help shortly after the accident because they can use this against you.
Can you help with my legal claim?
You will need evidence to support your argument when you are speaking with the insurance company. We provide you with a full write-up of your diagnosis, the injuries you have, the proposed treatment plan, and why we believe chiropractic care is the best option for your treatment as opposed to any other medical service. Further, when you see a chiropractor, you may be able to avoid more costly treatment options such as surgery. An insurance adjuster may be more willing to accept your compensation amount when they see a reasonable price instead of surgical procedures.
When it comes to your healing after a car accident, we know that it is both physical and emotional. While your doctor’s primary goal may be to help your body heal, they can also work with you and your attorney to give you the emotional closure you need by helping with your claim.
