Auto Accident Advice from San Diego Chiropractors
Being in a car accident can have long-term effects. Sometimes damage is severe and injuries are apparent, but there are many incidents where injuries suffered are not immediately noticeable. Having your internal organs, head, neck and back thrown about during a collision can cause damage that you may not be aware of for weeks or even months.
We've provided some general guidelines of how to handle an accident in the 92111 area, but you may also want to seek legal representation to find out exactly what your responsibilities and rights are in these situations.
You should always stop after an accident and assess whether there are any major injuries which require immediate attention. Contact the police so they can file a report and check all vehicle occupants as well. Exchange insurance and driver information, no matter whose fault you think it is. If you have a camera, safely document the scene of the accident. As soon as reasonably possible, jot down a few notes of your version of the events, including time of day, weather and road conditions. Next, file a claim with your insurance company. Finally, don't delay seeing an auto accident chiropractor who can assess your injuries and prescribe any necessary treatment plans.
