How Can a Chiropractor Help Me With Car Accident Repair Assistance?

You might be surprised to learn that you could receive assistance for your car accident claim from a local chiropractor if you were involved in a car accident in Georgia. While not all chiropractors provide this type of assistance, Dominguez Chiropractic can assist you with your car accident claim.

We pride ourselves in serving as a one-stop auto injury center, where a chiropractor can help you with car accident repair assistance and observe your injuries to get you back into good health.

We Can Arrange Vehicle Repairs for You

If the at-fault driver’s insurance company contacts you, you might be told that you can go to an “approved list” of body repair shops. However, these shops often benefit from their relationship with the insurance company. Depending on how much service the insurance company offers, you may not receive the full extent of repairs your vehicle might need.

Even if an adjuster takes your vehicle to a particular shop to be inspected, you generally do not have to use that shop. Our staff can recommend reputable body repair shops that can perform the repairs on your vehicle up to standard.

We Can Arrange Transportation for You

Our center can arrange transportation for you and have your damaged vehicle towed to the shop of your choice. We can also help you get a rental vehicle to use while your vehicle is being repaired at the at-fault driver’s expense.

Our staff can handle all insurance claim information while you focus on your recovery, whether you are filing a third-party claim or using your own personal injury protection (PIP) insurance.

We Can Help Move Your Medical Claim Along

Car accidents may cause a variety of injuries due to the sudden and violent jerking of your body during the collision. Individuals may sustain serious injuries in accidents, such as:

  • Head-on collisions
  • Hit and runs
  • Rear-end crashes
  • Bike accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • MARTA accidents
  • Taxi accidents
  • Bus accidents
  • Uber and Lyft accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • DUI accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents

In a study published in PAIN, researchers found that motor vehicle accident victims showed little improvement with their chronic pain after six weeks, six months, and one year after the accident. If a motor vehicle accident caused you to have chronic pain from a severe back or spinal injury, you may need chiropractic treatment to recover. Leaving your injuries untreated may develop further damage and exacerbate your chronic pain over time.

By beginning chiropractic treatment, you can get medical documentation to enhance your personal injury claim. With proof that you sought treatment for your injuries, this may prevent the insurance company from claiming you only received property damage from the accident. You may also be able to ask for your chiropractic care treatment to be paid as part of your car accident compensation.

We Can Recommend a Personal Injury Lawyer to Assist You With Your Claim

If you need further assistance with your claim, we can also recommend a personal injury lawyer. The personal injury law firms in our networks can provide legal assistance to our patients who were harmed in car accidents. They may also offer to:

  • Investigate your accident to determine who is responsible for your accident
  • Gather evidence to support your claim
  • Ascertain the extent of your damages
  • Negotiate with the insurance company for a settlement
  • Fight for your rights in court if the insurance company refuses to offer a fair settlement

We Also Assist With Your Medical Treatment

Of course, our primary job is to assist you with your injuries. We can treat a variety of injuries that commonly occur after a car accident, such as:

  • Whiplash
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Fractures
  • Lower back pain
  • Lumbar sprains and strains
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Headaches

Chiropractors provide natural treatment for the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. Dr. Barbara Dominguez personally visits every patient and coordinates a comprehensive care plan for each patient. Treatment options alleviate pain and avoid side effects commonly associated with surgery or medication. These treatments may include:

  • Chiropractic adjustment
  • Cervical adjustment
  • Traction
  • Massage
  • Hot and cold therapy
  • Exercise

Chiropractic care often provides short- and long-term relief from pain and improves your quality of life.
