Auto Accident Care in Windermere

Woman with neck pain from auto accidentIf you have been in a car accident, the team at Windermere Chiropractor & Physiotherapy Clinic wants to help you get the assistance you need to help you get out of pain and heal properly. We welcome motor vehicle accident cases and can help you through the details of properly handling your case.

The Importance of Seeking Care Promptly

Many people think that if their vehicle wasn’t damaged then they’re okay. Even a low-speed fender bender can cause trauma to the body that may not show up for weeks or months after the accident. We encourage you to contact our office as soon as possible following an accident so we can provide a comprehensive evaluation and the appropriate treatment.

Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA)

If you have been involved in any type of motor vehicle accident, you must take the following steps within 10 days after the collision:

  1. File an injury accident report to your insurance company and police.
  2. Seek treatment from a primary healthcare provider (PHCP) such as a chiropractor, physical therapist, or physician. If you only sustained a minor injury (such as sprain, strain, or minor whiplash), you don’t need authorization from your insurer. You may immediately start treatment, and your insurance company will be billed directly.
  3. File the appropriate forms (AB1). These are available from your PHCP, insurer, or insurance broker. Notify your insurance company but don’t settle the case until you find out if there are any conditions that might affect your life down the road-physically and financially.
  4. If necessary, hire a lawyer that will work closely with our clinic. It’s important that you don’t provide statements about the accident to anyone other than the police. You should refrain from signing any documents before consulting your lawyer.
