Ask A Denver Auto Accident Expert
If You Drive a Car or Know Someone Who Drives, This May be the Most Important Article You will Read!
In my 17 years of practice, I have often been asked the same questions over and over. The most common questions I get concerns car accident injuries and auto insurance.
Please sit down, get comfortable and discover some very important information.
What type of Car Insurance should I carry?
I personally carry “extra” insurance on my policy. After the law changed in 2003, the minimal insurance is dangerous! I recommend “med-pay” of at least $10,000. I personally have $25,000 “medical payment” on my policy. This simple little add-on only cost you a little more (in many cases about$10 to $20 a month). This will cover you, your family and friends in your car if there are any injuries. I have had many patients who have to pay cash out of pocket for treatment because they did not know to get this coverage. You could end up paying thousands if you get taken to the hospital by ambulance, stay a night and get chiropractic treatment.
I also have “uninsured” and “underinsured” protection in case if someone who hits me has no insurance or very little coverage. PLEASE make sure you ask for this also.
I have health insurance, why do I need med-pay?
Health insurance has many limits (as to what hospital you can use, what doctors you can see, what treatment you may get and how often you can get treatment). You will have to pay for co-pays and deductibles. Your health insurance will only cover you and your immediate family. Your health insurance will not cover other passengers in the car (like mom, dad, cousins, uncles, niece, nephews and friends!) Your med-pay covers everyone in the car and does not have the same limitations as your health insurance.
I have little or no pain after my accident, should I still get an exam at your office?
Research shows that you can have injuries that do not surface until days, weeks, months or even years after the accident. It makes sense to have a thorough chiropractic exam after ANY injury.
Do you think I should hire an attorney?
It is important to have your injuries documented BEFORE you visit an attorney. Our office can document your injury first before you see an attorney. We will also recommend some good attorneys that specialize in car accidents.
Can I just take some drugs to feel better?
No, a car accident is a physical problem and requires a physical treatment like what we do at Aim High Chiropractic. No amount of drug can realign a “crooked” or misaligned spine.
What are some common symptoms after a car accident?
Common complaints that I see daily in my office include: pain in the neck, back, mid-back, shoulder, arm, hand, leg, feet, jaw, headaches, dizziness, insomnia, fatigue, nervousness, forgetfulness, loss of appetite, blurry vision, ear ringing and others too numerous to list here.
