Auto Accident Injury Claims With Joplin MO Chiropractor

Going through an auto accident and facing injuries related to the accident impacts your health and well-being. When you experience pain and discomfort due to an injury from a car accident, you may benefit from working with our auto accident chiropractor. We understand the risks associated with the accident and take measures to assist with your recovery and concerns.

Ways an Auto Accident Chiropractor Helps with Pain

An auto accident chiropractor helps with pain management and recovery from an accident by providing the treatment you need to recover. We use natural treatments at Skaggs Chiropractic to help address the discomfort associated with your injuries. We also take the time to properly diagnose the injuries to limit further complications while you recover.

Common injuries associated with auto accidents include:

  • Whiplash
  • Sprains and strains
  • Head injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Cuts and bruises
  • Back and neck pain

We recognize the potential risks of inappropriate treatment for your injuries and take measures to help your body heal through chiropractic adjustments, decompression therapy and treatment of subluxations. We take measures to help your body recover from the injuries.

Determining Your Payment Options

After an accident, you may have concerns about paying for chiropractic care. The auto accident chiropractor in our clinic recognizes the risks associated with the injuries and we help you determine your options after evaluating the situation and the severity of your injuries.

We may recommend filing an auto accident claim through an insurance provider as part of the payment plan. In many cases, insurance providers assist with recovery costs after an accident as long as you handle the paperwork and claims process in the appropriate order. We may also help you determine alternative methods of paying for treatment, such as payment plans, after your insurance pays a portion of the costs.

Working with Professionals to Make an Auto Accident Insurance Claim

When you get into an auto accident, do not wait to seek professional treatment for your injuries. Time is critical to your claim process, example if you wait over 30 days to start your care, the insurance company downgrades your claim. At Skaggs Chiropractic, we provide the assistance you need to determine when to file a claim with your insurance provider and when to seek legal assistance for the injuries. Then there are simply some insurance companies that are difficult to to work with unless you have an attorney. We understand the risks associated with auto accidents and we help you with the process of filing a claim on your car insurance or health insurance to assist with recovery costs or to address concerns related to the accident.

We may recommend legal representation in certain situations. Our recommendations focus on the injuries and the situation related to your accident. What if you were not at fault like the investigating officer said?

Auto accidents cause a variety of injuries and may require treatment to help with mobility, healing and getting back to your normal routine. At our clinic, we help with every aspect of the recovery process, including filing a claim or determining when you may need legal assistance after an accident.
