Things you should know if you are in an accident

Things-you-should-know-if-you-are-in-an-accidentFor the majority of us, being involved in an accident is thankfully, not a frequent occurrence. Most of us would assume we’d know what to do in the event we were involved in an auto accident, but when it actually does happen and you’ve sustained an injury, things might not play out like you thought they should. The trauma of being involved in an accident is intensified when an injury occurs as a result. At the Car Accident Clinic, Dr. Keren Gomez understands the trauma and confusion that occurs after an accident. If you’ve been injured in an accident and are not sure where to begin to pick up the pieces, contact the offices of Dr. Keren Gomez where we will guide you through the steps of chiropractic healing and recovery claims.

Seek Medical Care Soon After An Accident Injury

Once you’ve been involved in an accident, we suggest that you call 911 immediately. If you are injured and feel that you need to go to the emergency room, then don’t wait, go immediately so that you can be seen by a doctor.  It’s not uncommon for the trauma of an accident to cause one’s body to go into a degree of shock where injuries might not be as obvious immediately. For some accident victims, who have sustained injuries from the accident, the pain may not set in for a few days, weeks, or even months.

Use Your Medical Benefits

After being involved in an auto accident, insurers insist that you are given 14 days to seek medical treatment. Once the 14 days have ended, your medical benefits will be forfeited. For this reason, it is important to assess quickly if you’ve been injured. Regardless of the seriousness of the impact or the speed at which you were travelling at the time of the accident, it is important to know if you have been injured. Dr Keren Gomez always urges her patients to make an appointment to see us as soon as you can after an accident.
