Whether your injuries are minor or catastrophic, getting into a car accident is one of the most frightening and stressful situations you can ever find yourself in (Learn more about Florida Auto Accident Statistics), and often through no fault of your own. It is understandable that you may be feeling confused after an accident, not knowing what steps to take next, and that is OK, we are here to help.

Should I See a Doctor After a Car Accident?

The first thing to recognize after a car accident is that it is extremely important to see a doctor as soon as you possibly can. For insurance purposes, it is vital that you receive an examination and diagnosis from a doctor within 72 hours of your accident, otherwise the insurance company can possibly deny your claim.

Fortunately, you have options. There is no requirement that you must receive treatment from your primary care physician or an ER doctor; Chiropractors, physical therapists, and pain management specialists can all offer you the same post-accident medical exam, and give you the information you need to satisfy your insurance company in a timely manner.

Car Accident Chiropractic

Chiropractors, in the computer systems of insurance companies, are considered equivalent to MD's, as they are also doctors, just a different type of doctor, and a chiropractor will be able to offer you a thorough examination, including X-ray, as they offer many medical services beyond chiropractic adjustments. 

When you are at your examination appointment, be sure to tell the chiropractor everything you can remember about your accident, and be sure to inform him/her to any pain or discomfort you may be feeling, or anything else you believe feels abnormal. Giving your doctor every detail will only help with your diagnosis.

If your accident doctor believes that you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries, he/she will also be able to help you get into contact with a personal injury attorney, who may be able to help you collect compensation from negligent parties.

Your attorney will have a much easier time making your case in court if they have all the necessary medical information.
