Optimum Health Rehab is committed to providing the best personal injury treatments to men, women, and children in Georgia. We’ve stayed at the forefront of car accidents, slip and fall, and sports injury care by bringing together a team of professionals experienced in chiropractic medicine, pain management, and wellness. We can provide a holistic solution for treating all personal injuries, from chiropractic adjustments and pain management injections to regenerative medicine and physical therapy.
What Is a Personal Injury?
Every injury is personal to the person who sustained it, but personal injuries in the legal sense are generally caused by another person. You might be eligible to receive compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering if your injury was the result of someone else’s negligence, mistakes, or careless actions.
These injuries are frequently sustained in car accidents or slips and falls on someone else’s property. Even minor car accidents can result in whiplash and other similar neck and back injuries. If any accident wasn’t your fault, you and your insurance company shouldn’t be expected to foot the bill.
Chiropractors that specialize in personal injury care often help patients get the diagnostic testing and medical care they need without being forced to pay a lot of money out of pocket. We understand that you may already have suffered a significant financial burden due to missing time at work or paying for treatment in the emergency room, and we don’t want to make things worse.
Treatment for injuries sustained in falls or car crashes frequently includes chiropractic adjustments, which is why visiting a Georgia clinic with a focus on physical rehabilitation and chiropractic care is often the best course of action. In addition to these mainstays, we also add supportive therapies as needed, such as regenerative therapy or massage therapy.
What If the Accident Was Your Fault?
Are you sure about that? We caution you not to try to make this determination on your own. Many people take responsibility for accidents they didn’t cause. At the same time, police reports are sometimes inconclusive as the officer may have very little information to go on. Even if the other party wasn’t ticketed, it may still be possible to make a claim on their car insurance policy to cover your accident-related medical treatment.
Before you decide that you were at fault for your injuries, please speak to a personal injury attorney about your accident. If it does turn out that no one else was negligent, there may still be other options for covering your treatment, such as health insurance or your own car insurance if you have a certain type of policy.
What If You’re Not Sure How Your Accident Happened?
Getting hurt often happens quickly, and you may be instantly distracted by the fact that you’re in pain. Frequently people tell us that they aren’t sure what happened, which is certainly understandable. It’s also a good reason to talk to a lawyer, who can help you determine if another party may have been negligent.
Are All Personal Injuries Caused by Slips and Falls or Car Accidents?
No, these are just the most common causes of personal injuries that we see. Some other situations that may lead to a personal injury include:
- Boating collisions
- Accidents with golf carts, ATVs, or other non-automobile vehicles
- Defective products that malfunction in a way that causes an accident or injury
- Workplace injuries (these are usually covered by workers’ compensation)
- Any situation where the negligence of another party (an individual or an organization) led to your injuries
If you aren’t sure about the cause of your accident or who might be responsible, the best way to have peace of mind is to consult a personal injury lawyer for a free consultation. Your attorney will explain what options you have for seeking compensation for your medical bills and other damages.
How Much Will My Personal Injury Care Cost?
Every patient’s situation is different, but many have all their healthcare costs covered by the responsible party’s insurance companies. Our chiropractors have a long history of partnering with some of Georgia’s most reputable personal injury law firms to help our patients get compensation. We’d be happy to connect you with an attorney who will negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf.
Receiving an accurate diagnosis and prognosis is vital when it comes to receiving fair compensation after suffering an injury. In order to receive adequate damages for your injuries, it’s necessary to prove:
- How you suffered the injury
- The extent of your injuries
- What a medical professional experienced in personal injury treatment recommends in terms of the care you’ll require to get back to full health
- How long it will take you to make a full recovery, especially in terms of how long your injuries may interfere with your job or lifestyle
- How your injuries have affected your work and personal life already
Having your injuries documented as soon as possible by a well-equipped clinic experienced in diagnostic technologies is often key. We excel at gathering the evidence an attorney will need to negotiate effectively on your behalf. If you have more questions about your treatment cost, or if you are ready to begin your treatment, please call 877-704-1761 or contact us online today.
Optimum Health Rehab Has the Diagnostic Capabilities to Accurately Identify Injuries
Accurately identifying injuries and ascertaining the scope of the damage is an important first step in any personal injury treatment plan. Our treatments aren’t aimed solely at managing your symptoms – the goal is to treat the underlying cause of those symptoms.
Our diagnostic suite includes:
- TBI/Concussion testing
In addition to using the latest technology to provide diagnostic insight, we also believe in taking the time to put down our tablets and have a conversation with each patient. First, we ask questions about your pain, symptoms, and difficulties. Next, we inquire about your medical history, activity level, and other lifestyle factors that may affect your health or pain. This helps us get a better picture of you, your life, the struggles your injuries have caused, and how we can best help you to feel better.
Every Patient Receives a Customized Personal Injury Rehabilitation Plan
Optimum Health Rehab never takes a one-size-fits-all approach to the needs of injured patients. You and one of our skilled chiropractors will work together on determining and implementing the ideal course of chiropractic adjustments, rehabilitation, and physical therapy.
The professionals at Optimum Health Rehab’s personal injury clinics truly understand that time is of the essence. They are committed to promptly scheduling patients so you can begin your road to recovery as soon as possible.
Should You Call a Chiropractor for Your Accident?
Adrenaline is a highly effective hormone, and it’s one of the reasons people involved in car crashes often don’t recognize how seriously they’re injured until hours, days, or in some cases even weeks after an auto accident.
Some people involved in crashes simply assume the soreness they feel in their back or neck is temporary and will go away on its own, or they just don’t want to deal with the hassle and cost of seeing a chiropractor. Unfortunately, they may find that the pain doesn’t go away, or even gets worse over time.
Consulting with a chiropractor experienced in diagnosing and treating accident injuries is vitally important for your long-term well-being and quality of life. The sooner you act after an auto accident the better your chances will be of having your medical costs paid for in full by the insurance company.
