Colorado Springs Auto Accident Doctor Shares Top 5 Mistakes to Avoid After Your Accident
1. Not knowing about your MedPay benefits: In Colorado, MedPay can pick up all of your medical bills after an accident, no matter who is at-fault. MedPay is a rider on your insurance
policy, and unless you have requested it removed, in writing, then you have it. Minimum coverage is for $5,000 and it goes up to $50,000. This can pick up the tab for your chiropractic, massage
and physical therapy care after the accident, so that you can recover and reduce the likelihood of lasting, or permanent, damage.
Avoid These 5 Post-Auto Accident Mistakes:
2. Only going to the Emergency Room or a medical doctor: Dr. Kallenbach made this mistake after her car accident. She went to the ER and they performed X-rays and gave her pain killers. They told her nothing was wrong. However, days later, raging headaches set in. Despite prescription drug pain killers, she was miserable for months before going to her first chiropractic doctor visit. That visit is why she is a chiropractic and auto accident doctor today. If you are dealing with physical problems, see a specialist - prescription pain medication and even surgery often addresses symptoms, not causes. While there is a time and place for prescription drugs and surgeries, there are many non-invasive treatments that actually get at the cause of your problem, rather than only addressing symptoms.
4. Not contacting an auto accident attorney, if injury occurred: Dr. Kallenbach is not a proponent of bogging the world down with lawsuits, but there are times when you have a right and a need to recovery damages. Health care is not cheap, and in some instances car accidents change lives forever. A good Colorado Springs personal injury attorney can help you get the care you need.
