What To Know After A Car Accident | Car Accident Chiropractor in Fairhaven, MA
Hi, Terry Soucie, Chiropractor at Barley Wellness just wanted to let you know a few things about car accidents that every patient should know.
You Have a Right To Care After a Car Accident
First of all, Massachusetts is a no fault state. That means that if you get hurt in an accident, you are going to get treated underneath your insurance. So a few priorities one, I know there’s a lot of cheap insurance online, you gotta watch out for what you sign up for. Some of them have an $8,000 deductible, that’s why they’re cheap, and you get no coverage for your care. The role of your insurance should cover for all your care that you need to get back to pre injury status. So it’s really important that you evaluate your insurance plans. Secondly, you have a right to care. It doesn’t matter what any person says to you, from the insurance company to other other doctors, if that need be. You can get your care wherever you want. And the goal of the care should be like I said, to return you back to pre injury status. Your physician who to pre treat you should have a treatment plan should absolutely document everything so that you’re actually the injury is very well documented. If it ever becomes a legal case. Everything should be in the notes. The good thing about bodily wellness is we have a lot of patients who don’t need an attorney because our care is thorough and our notes are thorough.
So I just want to encourage you make sure no one wants a car accident, but make sure you’re well prepared. Thank you.
