8 Most Frequently Asked Questions Following A Phoenix Car Accident.
Q: I’ve been to the Hospital Emergency Room and My Medical Doctor, Do I Really Need to See a Chiropractor?
A: You need a doctor who understands car accident trauma and therefore providing the necessary care and diagnosis of auto accident injuries. Be aware hospital emergency rooms and other types of emergency services will check vital signs, make sure there are no life-threatening conditions and release you with pain relief medication. They do not treat the underlying injuries that can often lead to future pain. The ER and Medical doctor is really not trained to take care of ongoing car accident injuries. That is why Penny injury chiropractic highly suggests after your hospital visit you make an immediate appointment with our office. Our office is dedicated to auto accident victims and utilizes specific forms of care designed for correcting structural damage.
Q: I didn’t go to the Emergency room and didn’t go to my doctor do you offer emergency car accident care and when can I get an appointment?
A: Yes you can get Emergency Car accident treatment at Penny Injury Chiropractic even if you haven’t seen a MD or gone to the hospital. We have same day appointments available. Give us a call and we will see you today 623-463-1000.
Q: Should I See An Attorney Before I See My Chiropractor?
A: First and foremost we believe that if you have been involved in a car crash of any type you need to hire an attorney! It is crucial to get examined by the doctor as soon after the accident as possible. Your examination findings will need to be documented immediately after your accident by a phoenix car accident chiropractor to determine the appropriate health care necessary for the best recovery. Your attorney will want to know what injuries you have sustained.
Q: What If My Car Sustained Only Minor Damage?
A: Documented studies performed by car crash experts Arthur Croft DC, Charles Carroll, M.D., Paul McAtee, M.D. and Lee Riley, M.D. revealed that: “The amount of damage to the automobile bears little relation to the force applied to the cervical spine (neck) of the occupants.”
In other words, the damage to any of the occupants in the vehicle is not necessarily directly related to the amount of damage to the vehicle. That is why all phoenix auto accident injuries need to be immediately evaluated by a qualified neck and back phoenix chiropractor.
Q: What if I Need a MRI or See a MD after you examine me?
A: At Penny Injury Chiropractic we will immediately refer you for a MRI or any imaging studies that are medically necessary to evaluate the extent of your injuries. It is important to know we refer to facilities who work on a lien, that way you do not have to pay up front for those studies. We also work exclusively with other Phoenix medical doctors who understand the personal injury process when you have been injured in a car accident in phoenix, who also work on a lien and wait for payment until your case settles.
Q: If I Need Chiropractic Care, Do I Have To Pay For It Myself?
A: If you are not at fault your care typically is covered at 100% with no out of pocket costs to you. Penny Injury Chiropractic will assist you in obtaining the costs of your healthcare concerning your motor vehicle accident.
Q: The Insurance Company Has Been Calling Me And Wants To Settle, What Should I Do?
A: This is the exact reason we strongly suggest that you hire an attorney. Do not sign or settle anything until you have had us evaluate your injury for you. Remember if you settle with the insurance company before your injury is fully resolved, you will be entirely on your own and will have to pay for your care.
Q: My insurance adjuster said I shouldn’t need to go to the chiropractor because I was in a low impact accident and there was hardly any damage to my car or the other car.
A: First and foremost your insurance adjustor cannot determine if you need care or what type of care to seek. Insurance adjustors are trained and get bonuses for keeping your accident costs to a minimum and sadly that pertains to your body as well as to your personal property. Also the amount of damage to your car has been scientifically proven to not be related to the amount of injury you sustained to your back, neck and spine as well as the rest of your body.
It is absolutely imperative to understand that even car crashes at extremely low speeds in Phoenix Arizona can cause a serious damage to your body. Car Crash Studies show that many injuries take place in accidents under 20 miles per hour. Just imagine what could take place if you are involved in a car crash at a high speed! Remember even if you don’t experience immediate pain, it is very smart and highly recommended by Dr. Trever Penny to get a spinal checkup visit after a car accident to make sure that your spine hasn’t been damaged and/or misaligned and to determine what your body has or has not sustained as a result of your low impact car crash, which may be unknown to you.
There are dozens of wrecks every day in Phoenix—some major, some minor—and many leave their victims injured, sometimes for the rest of their lives. Most car accident victims in Arizona think that they are fine because they don’t experience any pain initially. Remember, just because you are not experiencing any pain does not mean that you are not hurt! This is a common misconception made by many, but almost all car crashes jolt the body to some degree. Many experience shock since their bodies are in fight-or-flight mode, which blocks the pain from being felt. Some people experience pain the next day, while it can takes weeks or months for some to experience their injuries.
