What To Do After An Accident
Schedule An Appointment
If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident you will need to make an appointment for a brief, but thorough, examination. Often, individuals involved in motor vehicle accidents experience minimal or no symptoms for the first few weeks and even months. It's important to not only receive immediate and appropriate treatment for any injuries sustained, but also to document the extent of the injuries, if present.
Failure to obtain a timely evaluation or appropriate treatment for injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident may negate your ability to receive monetary compensation for any future medical bills resulting from the accident, negate your ability to receive pain and suffering settlements, and negate compensation for work loss.
We Will Determine...
When you come in, we will determine:
- the extent of the injury or injuries
- the number of estimated treatments required to treat your injuries
- if referral to another specialist is required
- if special tests are required (i.e. MRI, CT Scan, etc.)
- if you need to take "injury time off" from work (and provide you with a note to present to your employer)
You Are Covered
Alberta's Auto Injury Protocols ensure all people injured in an automobile accident will receive care for whiplash associated injuries. Depending on the extent of the injuries, accident victims are pre-approved for treatment regardless of who is at fault or which insurance companies are involved. Injury assessment and treatment plan development must be done by a licensed chiropractor or physiotherapist. Billing is made directly to the insurance companies on behalf of the patient.
In most instances, auto accidents occurring in Saskatchewan can also be direct billed to the insurance company.
