Auto Accident/Personal Injury

THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW IF YOU HAVE BEEN INVOLVED IN AN AUTO ACCIDENT

HERE AT FERNCREEK HEALING CENTER, WE KNOW FIRST HAND THAT A CAR ACCIDENT CAN BE SCARY. OUR OWN DOCTOR WAS IN AN ACCIDENT THAT CAUSED A LOT OF PAIN AND SUFFERING. AN ACCIDENT HAPPENS SO QUICKLY AND CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE IN AN INSTANT. SOMETIMES YOU MAY EVEN NEED SURGERY OR REQUIRE LONGTERM CARE. IT IS OUR GOAL TO MAKE SURE YOU RECEIVE WHATEVER CARE IS NECESSARY.

  • YOU ONLY HAVE FOURTEEN DAYS FROM THE DATE OF THE ACCIDENT TO SEEK TREATMENT AND BE COVERED FOR TREATMENT BY YOUR AUTO INSURANCE/PERSONAL INJURY POLICY.
  • IF YOU HAVE SIGNIFICANT INJURIES YOU NEED TO MAKE SURE YOUR CHIROPRACTOR REFERS YOU TO A MEDICAL DOCTOR/PROVIDER FOR AN EVALUATION IN ORDER TO QUALIFY FOR YOUR FULL BENEFIT AMOUNT.
  • YOU MAY NOT EXPERIENCE ANY PAIN/OR SYMPTOMS FOR SEVERAL WEEKS, BUT YOU COULD STILL HAVE A SIGNIFICANT INJURY. MANY OF THE EFFECTS OF SPINAL DISC INJURIES ARE NOT PRESENT FOR 3-4 WEEKS AFTER AN ACCIDENT. PLEASE GET CHECKED OUT. CALL 407-228-8228.
  • WE WORK WITH MANY REPUTABLE ATTORNEYS AND ARE HAPPY TO PROVIDE YOU WITH THEIR INFORMATION. THESE ATTORNEYS OFFER FREE CONSULTATIONS FOR YOU. PLEASE SPEAK WITH AN ATTORNEY BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO SETTLE YOUR CASE.
  • INJURY OCCURS TO THE SPINE EVEN IN MINOR DAMAGE ACCIDENTS.
  • TYPICALLY YOUR AUTO INSURANCE, THE AUTO INSURANCE OF A HOUSEHOLD FAMILY MEMBER, OR THE AUTO INSURANCE OF THE COMPANION DRIVER WILL COVER YOUR TREATMENT.
  • MOST OF THE INSURANCE COMPANIES IN FLORIDA ARE PROHIBITED FROM RAISING YOUR INSURANCE RATES IF YOU ARE NOT AT FAULT FOR YOUR ACCIDENT.
