  1. Thank you for requesting an appointment with the Advanced Chiropractic and Wellness Center

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Things to do immediately after an injury

  1. Make sure you immediately attend to your injuries.
  2. Schedule an exam with a chiropractor within 24 hours of a fall, accident, or injury. Even if you feel your injuries are minor, a consultation with one of our doctors is always done at no charge.
  3. Report an accident to the police and your own insurance company. If the injury occurred on someone else’s property, immediately notify the owner, landlord, or manager of the property.
  4. Consult with an attorney. Make sure you understand your rights. Most attorneys will provide an initial consultation at no charge. We will be happy to provide a list of attorneys with extensive experience.
  5. Call a skilled chiropractor who understands the unique injuries caused by auto accidents. Dr. Richard Schwartz has been serving the Ambler, PA Willow Grove, Pa for over 12 years. Since we never charge for a consultation with a doctor, there is no reason not to schedule an appointment after every accident or injury.
  6. Do not give statements about the accident to anyone other than the police.
  7. Do not miss your scheduled medical/chiropractic appointments. Doing so may create the false impression that your injuries were not serious; that you weren’t making your best effort to get well; or that you made your injuries worse by failing to adhere to the recommended treatment.
  8. Do not sign any documents from your insurance company without consulting with an attorney. Many insurance companies will quickly try to get you to sign a release from further liability by offering a small amount of money (usually a few hundred dollars). Once a release is signed, you can’t go back and ask for more, even if you’re still hurt, or get worse (which may happen if your injuries are left untreated).
  9. Do not allow the liability insurance company to review your medical records without consulting an attorney.

“GETTING BETTER IS NO ACCIDENT”

The Most Serious Mistakes To Avoid After An Accident

The 8 Most Serious Mistakes You Can Make If You Have Just Been Injured Or Have Been In An Automobile Accident

Mistake #1: Failing to seek immediate treatment from a doctor after an accident.
Each year, 10% of the population will be involved in an automobile accident. 20% of all accidents lead to SERIOUS and long-term injuries, yet 30% of those involved never seek treatment.

Mistake #2: Taking pain medications and muscle relaxers to mask an injury.
Pain is your body’s alarm bell telling you something is wrong. Masking pain with medication is like taking the batteries out of the smoke detector. You are turning off the alarm instead of putting out the fire.

Mistake #3: Not treating the cause of your pain after an accident.
Drugs only mask your pain for a few hours. When they wear off, your symptoms return. In our clinics, we put 100% of our focus on reducing your pain by focusing on the cause of your pain. This approach has helped thousands of our patients to heal properly.

Mistake #4: Not consulting with a skilled professional who specializes in fast, effective pain relief for injuries caused by automobile accidents, work-related injuries, and other minor trauma.

Mistake #5: Not making a Chiropractic visit your top priority after an accident.
Chiropractic focuses on correcting the cause of your pain, not simply “covering it up.”

Mistake #6: Not understanding that Auto Insurance usually pays for treatment without up-front fees.
Our office will work with your attorney, insurance adjuster, or private insurance company, to avoid payment of services out of your pocket.

Mistake #7: Confusing what’s most urgent with what’s most important.
So many people focus their entire lives on what’s urgent at the moment, instead of focusing on what’s most important. Make sure scheduling a consultation at one of our offices carries the utmost importance.

Mistake #8: Procrastinating after an accident.
Why procrastinate if you are in pain? Call the office most convenient for you TODAY! A consultation with the doctor is always at no charge, and we can better assess your needs after speaking with you.
