If you have been involved in any type of motor vehicle accident, whether it involves an auto accident, car accident, truck accident, boat accident or ATV accident, you may or may not feel the pain of the injuries at the time of the actual accident. Injuries like cuts and broken bones are easily identified and should be treated by a medical doctor. Other types of injuries may not be visible. Pain or discomfort may develop in a day, a week, a month, a year or even longer. When accidents happen, it usually means that insurance companies are involved and there will be time limitations placed upon you to file a claim for both the damage to your vehicle and the care you require for the injuries you incurred.
If you fail to file your claim within the permitted amount of time, you may lose your right to be financially compensated for your injuries. At Baker Chiropractic, we perform thorough examinations for accident victims to determine what injuries you sustained, both for the pain and discomfort you feel now and for the problems you don’t currently see and feel. We also have extensive experience working with insurance companies to properly notify them of the scope of your injuries and the course of action required in order to properly treat and correct those injuries. Contact us today and tell us you were involved in a motor vehicle accident. We can schedule you for a prompt visit to protect your rights with insurance companies and provide you with the chiropractic care and guidance to get you well.
Whiplash is a term used to describe neck pain caused by injuries to the soft tissues of your neck (muscles, ligaments and tendons). Whiplash is a result of abnormal movement and force that causes the neck to be extended past its normal range of motion. Whiplash frequently occurs in auto accidents but can also happen from other events like sports activities and accidental falls. Symptoms of whiplash may include neck pain, swelling or tenderness in the neck area, muscle spasms and difficulty moving your neck. At Baker Chiropractic, we can eliminate the pain, discomfort and restrictive movement associated with whiplash.
