Things You Should Know If You Are In An Accident

For 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. We understand 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 office of Jeffrey Kidd, M.D. where we will guide you through the steps of 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 a doctor can see you.  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. Kidd always urges his patients to make an appointment to see us as soon as you can after an accident.

Get A Chiropractic Assessment Of Your Injuries

Within 14 days of being involved in an accident, Dr. Kidd recommends you visit the Pain Management Center in Orange City. Once you are seen, we will take the time necessary to perform a thorough exam in order to provide you and your insurance company with a proper diagnosis.

Obtain Legal Counsel After An Accident

Rely on Dr. Kidd to provide you with a contact referral of a reputable accident attorney who specializes in accident representation. At this point, you will be properly armed with a professional team to guide you through the process of healing your body, and recovering assets and obtaining proper financial means to cover loss of wages, property, and to cover medical expenses.
