Why You Should See A Doctor After an Auto Accident

There are more than 700 auto accidents in New Jersey on any given day. For the parties involved in the crash, a lot is happening at once, and much that needs to be done. Among all the police reports, insurance calls, and repair appoints, it’s vital that people involved in an accident go to a doctor as soon as possible. Getting a thorough examination from North Jersey Whole Health Center can protect yourself from further harm and avoid problematic situations when it’s time for insurance compensation.

One of the reasons why it’s essential to see a doctor after an accident is the statute of limitations for reporting an injury from a car crash. Without a statute of limitations on injury claims, people could request compensation for accidents that happened years in the past. While a restriction on the age of claims makes sense, it means accident victims need to rush to make sure they don’t miss their window to report their injuries.

In New Jersey, it’s recommended that most auto accidents victims are encouraged to see a chiropractor or a physical therapist for conservative treatment after an auto accident. North Jersey Whole Health Center is an ideal choice for this kind of checkup because we have specialized equipment.

At North Jersey Whole Health Center, our staff can order diagnostic testing, refer to other providers and prescribe supplements. Thanks to these perks and our methods, many patients find that they get faster relief with chiropractic care, particularly in the first few weeks after an accident. At North Jersey Whole Health Center, we recommend auto accident victims begin a course of chiropractic treatment within ten days after a crash, if not sooner.

Most people already have a private physician for their healthcare needs, but there is a value in getting a second opinion from doctors that specialize in care after an auto accident. At North Jersey Whole Health Center, we have Dr. Press and Dr. Geleta. This team of doctors has a wide range of experience handling auto injuries. This experience lets these doctors know where to look for hidden damage that could cause problems later.

Many of the issues that can be caused by a car accident don’t appear immediately. Drs. Press and Geleta can identify future problems that may not be causing pain at the moment. At North Jersey Whole Health, we can work with your primary care, orthopedic, and other doctors to make sure that you receive the care that you need.

Getting an expert opinion after a car accident may be essential to getting fair compensation from insurance companies. Our team works with and refers patients to skilled and talented doctors in our area for specialty care. We also know how to substantiate our medical conclusions with evidence that will be useful for personal injury attorneys who are working on getting compensation from insurance companies.

If you’ve been involved in a car accident, don’t wait to see a doctor. The faster issues can be identified, the sooner you can get them treated and get the compensation you need from insurance companies.
