YOU HAVE BEEN INJURED IN A CAR ACCIDENT
HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:
Start treatment now.
Whether you experienced pain right after the accident or developed symptoms in the days or weeks following, seek care as soon as possible. While medications may be needed to alleviate your symptoms they will not fully address your injuries – you need to get treatment for your injured spine, muscles and possible nerve and ligament damage.
Your car insurance will cover any care that is medically reasonable.
That means you can chose to see any healthcare provider and begin care without the need for a referral. Unless you opted out by signing a form, “Medical Payment” coverage under your car insurance policy will help pay for your care. Colorado law mandates a $5000.00 minimum for each person in your car during the accident.
It doesn’t matter who’s “at-fault” if you have Medical Payment coverage.
It will pay for your care regardless of who caused the accident. If you elected to opt out of having Medical Payment coverage on your car insurance policy, the other driver’s car insurance is responsible for paying for your care if you are not “at fault”. If you were “at fault” and did not have Medical Payment coverage, your health insurance will cover you for your care.
The amount of damage on your vehicle is irrelevant.
Insurance adjusters may tell you that because you had very little damage to your vehicle, it is not possible for you to be injured. This is a myth. Research on the subject of neck trauma and whiplash has disproven this.
To get you on the path of recovery, you must start the process now.
