Auto Accidents

car accident injuriesHidden Injuries

Auto accidents can cause major hidden injuries.  Even if your car needs only minor repairs, medical studies show that the amount of damage to a vehicle bears little relationship to the damaging force applied to the occupants.

Any accident, even a ‘fender-bender’, can cause major hidden injuries that you may not notice until days or weeks later.  These injuries can cause problems years later if they are not treated promptly.

Hidden injuries can cause pain to occur a few days or even weeks after an accident.  See the doctor as soon as possible after you are involved in an auto accident.

Children

Children who have been in an auto accident need a check-up, too.  Although your children may not seem to be injured, they may also have hidden injuries.  Even minor injuries can affect a child’s growth and behavior, and cause problems later in life.   Children are resilient and heal quickly with prompt chiropractic care.

Children of all ages, even infants and toddlers, should have a check-up after an auto accident. Auto insurance covers the cost of their care.

See the Doctor Right Away!

Get Care Soon

Everyone who has been in an auto accident should see a Chiropractor for a check-up right away.  Whether you feel you are hurt or not, you should have a check-up right after the accident to make sure that your body was not injured.

Auto insurance will cover the cost of a check-up for you and your passengers, and will pay for treatment if the check-up reveals any injuries.

Many people have physical problems today as the result of an auto accident they had long ago, but insurance will no longer cover the cost of their treatment.  Don’t let this happen to you!  Get a check-up right away.

Emergency Room Care

Even if your injuries were severe enough to require medical attention, you should still see your Chiropractor as soon as possible.  You may have soft tissue injuries in addition to the obvious injuries your medical doctor treated, and it is likely that you will require Chiropractic adjustments as well.

Emergency Room Physicians and Medical Doctors are not trained to find hidden soft tissue injuries.  Chiropractors are specialists, trained to locate and treat these problems.

Your care is covered here. All auto insurance policies in Oregon are required by law to provide at least $15,000 for medical care relating to injuries from an auto accident.
