Which kind of doctor should I go see after a car accident in Tallahassee? Those injured in an accident must file a claim with their insurance provider (get a claim number) and see a doctor within two weeks to benefit from Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage. PIP (or No-Fault) coverage covers lost wages and up to $10,000 no-fault coverage as stated within your car insurance policy. If the injured party fails to meet these requirements in the 14-day period, they will forgo the PIP benefit.
Seeking a doctors examination in a timely manner is critical to a healthy and speedy recovery. Whiplash is one of the most common injuries to those who have been in a car accident, which is why chiropractors should be a top consideration for treatment. Chiropractors treat approximately 30% of all people in accidents, and are highly sought out because they are the healthcare professionals trained extensively to treat these type of soft tissue injuries.
One of the benefits of chiropractic care is the use of drug-free treatments, which allows the body to heal itself, naturally. There are no side effects as there would be when using medication. The sooner you see a chiropractor, the better! Seeing a chiropractor immediately after an accident allows the doctor to help heal you quicker with less permanent injuries.
