Car or Work Accidents can bring questions like WHAT DO I DO NOW????
Car insurance and workers compensation in the state of Oregon in most cases covers the costs of treating these problems so that you don’t suffer usually by 100%. Nevertheless 50% of people who experience injuries associated with these types of accidents such as whiplash, will never fully recover and up to 30% will remain moderately to severely disabled by their condition. The associated costs secondary to whiplash injury, including medical care, disability, lost work productivity as well as personal costs are substatantial.
Neglecting attention to these injuries or waiting to see if the pain goes away on its own, increases your chances to be one of the statistics mentioned and will also increase your chances of insurance not recognizing your injuries. The longer you wait, the worse.
Our office policy is to always evaluate you for free to see if you need treatment or to continue with a more in depth evaluation. And if you do, we will file your insurance claim for you or help you in doing so. Whichever you prefer.
If you don’t have a lawyer representing you in an accident, many times there is no need for one, we can recommend lawyers that have worked well with our patients that have done exceptionally well representing them.
