Auto accidents not only involve physical pain but also possibly quite a bit of emotional stress dealing with insurance companies and lawyers. Dr. Brisbane and his staff have many years of experience in the Personal Injury arena and will guide you through the process. This allows his patients to focus on getting well and not having to worry about the “other stuff”.
Even if you are involved in what you consider to be a minor auto accident, you should still be evaluated as soon as possible. Sometimes there are misalignments in your spine that are not putting significant pressure on your nerves…yet.
If you are not having significant symptoms and decide to settle quickly with the insurance company, you run the risk of developing problems in the future that you will be responsible for. It is much easier to get checked right away and be sure you are uninjured. Six months after an accident is not a good time to start getting treatments. This will certainly be a “red flag” that the insurance company will use to delay or even deny paying for your treatments.
Delaying treatment will, more than likely, affect your physical recovery as well. Chronic misalignments can lead to scar tissue build-up in the muscles which can limit your mobility. This can make your body more susceptible to injury and be a source of chronic aches and pains.
So, if you have been involved in an auto accident, time is of the essence … on a lot of different levels. Getting yourself evaluated is the first thing you should do. The sooner you start treatment, the sooner and more completely you will recover from your injuries. Then, if your case requires an attorney, we can provide you with a list of competent attorneys that can assist you when it comes time to settle your case.
