Whiplash and Auto Accident Injuries.  Bang, Crash!  What just happened?  You’re hurt, and confused.  Now your body aches all over.  What’s worse, you can barely move your neck without pain.  So you go to the ER. After a battery of x-rays and tests, they tell you there’s no injury.  They give you pain killers and muscle relaxers and send you on your way.  What do you do now?  Your insurance agent sounds really nice and supportive over the phone, but at the same time they’re denying your treatment and trying to push a low settlement on you.

(or were you injured at work)

Most people who get into an accident suffer from whiplash.  However, if your auto accident injuries are life threatening, it’s important to go to the emergency room right away.  They will do an excellent job at treating broken bones, open wounds and serious internal injuries.  In fact, nobody does it better.  But when it comes to muscular and skeletal damage their only answer is medication.  Unfortunately, medication only covers up the symptoms.

Now you get a call from your doctor, your own insurance company isn’t paying out the Personal Injury Protection you paid for.  So you call your rep.  They are so nice to you and tell you they’ll take care of you.  You even talk to their supervisor.  In a warm comforting tone they tell you everything will be alright.

But there’s something they’re not telling you.  Both your rep and their boss are powerless in the decision making process.  In fact no human can make any decisions about your case.  A computer factors it all out.  Most companies use a program called Colossus. Some actually brag that they don’t use Colossus.  But guess what, they use similar software.  In fact some insurance companies use several software programs to save as much money as possible.

We Will Work for You

I have been to many auto insurance seminars.  Some of them even break down how Colossus works and what it’s looking for.  In fact we have designed our paperwork around this software.  We know what it’s looking for and can help you get what you’re entitled to.  We also have an expanse network of expert lawyers we can refer you to if necessary.  Additionally, we know which companies are easier and harder to work with.  Did you know you may need an attorney to work with your own insurance company.  Of course that depends on who your carrier is.

We also use specialized equipment in our office such as computerized digital range of motion.  These devices are the gold standard in measuring range of motion.

If you’re involved in an accident don’t try to go it alone.  Do not talk to anyone about your injuries or lack of injuries until a chiropractor performs a thorough examination.  Make sure you’re chiropractor knows how to chart note to Colossus, and has a good referral network of lawyers and medical practitioners.  We are such an office.

It’s also important see a qualified doctor for an examination even if you’re not injured.  Why?  Let’s say two weeks later you suffer from a work injury.  Now they can argue it’s from the auto accident.  But if you have an exam showing you’re injury free, you’re in good shape.

Our Treatment

After a thorough examination, we will put together a precise combination of therapies to help you recover quickly.  These therapies range from specific chiropractic corrections, trigger point therapy, traction, home exercise and massage therapy.  We custom tailor our treatment for the individual and their needs.
