Do Car Accident Settlements Cover Chiropractor Costs?

chiropractic costs

Often victims of Texas car accidents suffer from neck, back, and muscle injuries. Even minor fender-benders can result in these injuries. Often, these injuries can greatly benefit from chiropractic care. Many chiropractors specialize in vehicle accident after-care. This can help patients manage the ongoing pain from their injuries. These treatments have been shown to help promote faster healing. Chiropractic care offers some patients tremendous relief and could be something to consider after being injured.

It’s not uncommon to have chiropractic care as part of your comprehensive medical approach to your recovery. However, chiropractors don’t come cheap, and the expenses can add up quickly. If you worried about the expenses, you might be wondering if your car accident settlement will be able to cover the costs of your treatment. The short answer is yes.

While the short answer is yes, it’s often a little more complicated than that. Any attorney will advise you that reasonable medical expenses can be reimbursed through car accident settlements. However, when it comes to your chiropractic treatment, it boils down to how your care is documented. A mistake in your documentation can significantly impact your ability to get a chiropractic settlement.

Getting Paid For Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic treatment is unfortunately still regarded by many as a discretionary, non-medical treatment. The insurance company will probably take this position in order to reduce their liability in a car accident settlement. In order to increase your odds of getting compensated for your chiropractic costs, you should do the following. First, start your treatment as soon as possible. You should also ask your medical doctor for a chiropractic referral as part of your approach to your healing and recovery. Be sure you have your chiropractor document your condition and treatment plan in your medical records.  Remember to adhere to your physical therapy or other treatments that are scheduled as well.  This will all help keep track of your costs, treatment, and the progress of your recovery.
