From long, painful recoveries and lasting psychological scars to lost income and mounting medical bills, car accidents have the potential to impact victims physically, financially, and emotionally. Fortunately, seeking medical attention and care from an experienced chiropractor can help address these burdens.

At Amazing Spine Care, our award-winning chiropractic team has helped countless patients across Jacksonville following all types of motor vehicle accidents. If you’ve recently suffered injuries in a car accident, we’re available to discuss the pain and symptoms you’re experiencing and how we can develop a custom treatment plan that promotes healing, mobility, and recovery.

As part of our comprehensive approach to patient wellness, we’re always willing to discuss the benefits of chiropractic care – not only in regard to how it can promote wellness and improve physical symptoms, but also in terms of how it can position you favorably should you choose to pursue a personal injury claim.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help Your Personal Injury Case

After being injured in a car accident, many victims seek chiropractic care to address pain, mobility issues, and other physical symptoms. And while the services of a chiropractor can indeed be beneficial to promoting healing, there are other benefits as well – particularly as they relate to any personal injury claim you may pursue.

Here are some of the ways that chiropractic care can strengthen your car accident claim:

  1. Medical Documentation. Chiropractic records serve as valuable evidence in your personal injury claim, corroborating your injuries and the treatment received. This documentation, which can include provider notes and imaging results, helps establish the severity of your injuries and their impact on your daily life, and can be used to support your claim and the damages being sought in settlement negotiations or court proceedings.
  2. Expert Testimony. Chiropractors can provide expert testimony regarding your injuries, treatment, and prognosis, further supporting your claim. Their professional opinion carries weight in court, especially when backed by thorough documentation and experience. In addition to providing leverage during settlement negotiations, the testimony of chiropractors can help judges and juries better understand the extent of your injuries and the necessity of your treatment plan.
  3. Long-Term Prognosis. Chiropractors can assess the long-term implications of your injuries and provide insight into the potential for future complications or the need for ongoing treatment. This can provide a clearer picture of the accident’s impact on your life, enhancing the credibility of your claim and positioning you to recover damages that account for any future costs or losses you’ll incur beyond the conclusion of the case.
  4. Rehabilitation Support. Chiropractors not only focus on relieving pain but also on restoring function, mobility, and your ability to return to the activities you once enjoyed, when possible. By participating in rehabilitation programs under chiropractic guidance, you demonstrate your commitment to recovery, which can positively impact your claim.
  5. Enhanced Quality of Life. Beyond legal considerations, chiropractic care can also improve your quality of life following a car accident. By addressing underlying issues and promoting holistic healing, chiropractors empower you to regain control of your health and resume your daily activities with confidence. This tangible improvement in your wellbeing can be compelling evidence of the effectiveness of chiropractic treatment in your personal injury claim.

Paying for Chiropractic Care After a Car Accident

Some folks who are interested in seeking chiropractic care may have concerns about paying for their treatment. While these services can be covered by insurance, it is worth noting that, in many personal injury cases, the cost of chiropractic care is included in the damages sought. This means that any settlements or awards you receive in your car accident claim can reimburse you for the expenses associated with your chiropractic treatment.

Additionally, many chiropractors offer patients with pending personal injury claims the option to obtain care on a lien basis. This means they agree to treat you with the understanding that they will be paid from the settlement or award you receive once your case is successfully resolved. This arrangement allows you to access the care you need without upfront costs and focus on your recovery without having to worry about the financial aspect.
