Can I Go To A Chiropractor After A Car Accident?
As a firm, we believe it is important that we stay in our lane as lawyers. We don't like giving unduly influence our clients' course of medical care. We are not doctors. We don't play pretend. We do try and help our clients solve problems on every level. Sometimes a big problem is being able to obtain the medical care they need to address their injuries and symptoms—but, even then, we stay in our lane as much as possible.
Advising Clients To Contact Their Medical Professional
So, if potential clients or our clients ask us if they can go to a chiropractor after a car accident we would simply refer that question to that person's primary care physician. Or we refer them to whichever medical professional they are seeing to treat their crash related injuries and symptoms.
We would, too, though, talk through all of the considerations relating to their potential personal injury claims surrounding the decision from a legal perspective (insurance coverages, billing issues, burdens of proof relating to medical care, juror biases, etc.).
Advising Clients to Establish Medical Care If They Don't Have It
Some of those considerations and the related issues are outlined on this blog where we answered the question: What if I'm in a wreck and don't have health insurance?
As long as your medical providers agree, though, trying chiropractic care is perfectly reasonable after a crash. Whether or not it is something that you find useful in addressing your crash-related injuries and symptoms is what then dictates how much additional chiropractic intervention may or may not be appropriate in your particular circumstances. That, as well as the input of your medical providers.
