Steps To Take after an Accident

What To Do After A Car Accident

You’ve been hurt in a car accident. Now what?

The first step following a car accident is to check for life threatening injuries, if applicable. The next step to take after a car wreck is to get evaluated by a doctor in order to decrease the chances of long-term pain and loss of feeling or motion. Research has clearly shown the benefits of starting the healing process right away. Our chiropractors are board certified physicians. Dr. Bearden, DC has been a practicing chiropractor for over 20 years and is adept at pinpointing the cause of accident pain with high accuracy. It is very important to be evaluated right after the car accident, even before you seek legal help from an attorney.

Our clinic’s thorough evaluations provide the patient and the attorney with accurate medical information for the successful settlement of your case. Because of medical and legal reasons a physician before hiring a lawyer is the first step to follow after having a wreck.

Insurance Documentation After Car Or Truck Accident

Be sure to research and find a doctor who has worked with a number of insurance companies and knows how to document a case from a treatment perspective. The car insurance companies involved and the attorneys (if applicable) will want to see a full assessment and treatment report including any x-rays and notes from the doctor. Dr. Bearden is meticulous in his insurance documentation and knows what the parties wish to see related to your treatment program and subsequent recovery.

Types Of Resulting Pain: Whiplash

Many people believe that car accident injury pain is related to strained or pulled muscles that will naturally get better with time. Most times, that’s simply not the case. For many injuries, however, that’s simply not the case. Neck pain, pounding headaches, shooting pain in the arms or legs, numbness and tingling, unrelenting muscle aches and pains, blurred vision, and difficulty sleeping at night are all symptoms of serious whiplash injuries. This pain won’t simply go away or get better without effective treatment from an experienced doctor. In fact, the longer you delay treatment, the worse your pain may become. Our doctors can help. If you have been in a recent accident and you are feeling these symptoms, there may be cause for concern.

Our doctors have dealt with insurance companies and attorneys for years. We are skilled in reporting resulting details accurately and completing required reports, diagnoses, and treatments. We are doctors for the people. We have helped accident victims recover for over 20 years.

Symptoms After A Car Or Truck Collision

  • Neck Stiffness & Pain
  • Headaches & Migraines
  • Sharp or shooting pain in your arms or legs
  • Numbness and/or tingling sensations
  • Constant muscle aches
  • Waking up throughout the night or difficulty sleeping
  • Trouble with vision: blurry or double vision

How Serious Are Your Injuries: When To Involve Doctors

You don’t have to be in a tractor trailer accident on Tennessee’s I-40 interstate to sustain a serious injury. Whiplash injuries, for instance can result from collisions at low speeds, even 5 miles per hour. In some cases, the injuries sustained are minor, but it is worth getting checked by a physician to be sure you don’t require further care. Sometimes you may have Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI). Dr. Bearden is experienced with Traumatic Brain Injuries. Dr. Bearden is a certified accident reconstructionist.

Be sure to get a comprehensive diagnostic exam. These exams should identify the source of your pain. Headaches, numbness and tingling, and unclear vision are often related to a cervical spine misalignment. Pounding headaches, numbness and tingling, and blurred vision are common whiplash injury symptoms due to a cervical spine misalignment. The force of a rear-impact car accident can “whip” the neck backwards and forwards, triggering a spinal misalignment know as whiplash. Once our doctors at Nashville Accident and Injury have identified the cause of your resulting pain, our team will create a personalized care plan. Depending on your condition, we may combine multiple treatment options, including chiropractic adjustments and spinal decompression therapy, to maximize pain relief and treat the back or neck. Our goal is to help the body heal as quickly and safely as possible while providing immediate, drug-free pain relief. The sooner we can evaluate and diagnose your injuries, the faster we can help you get back on the path to good health.

There has been a tremendous improvement on my overall fitness and energy levels compared to before. I can’t thank them enough.

If you are searching for auto accident injury treatment in Nashville, then you should give them a call. I was grappling with so much neck pain for nearly a year after my accident. Tried so many approaches whether its physical therapy, medicines or massage but all of them were only short term relief. Within a short period of time, I could tell an enormous breakthrough with my pain levels and after 2 and a half months was off my meds and sleeping well again. Only wish I found them sooner.

From the years of strenuous workout of power lifting and squats, my spine was exhausted. After months of suffering with chronic, re-occuring pain, I scheduled an appointment with their center. Right off the bat, they addressed all of my concerns re: Insurance and ability to pay and what to expect from one week to the next. After a month of treatment I was back in the gym at a capacity I hadn’t achieved for several years. I am optimistic this has saved me from future back surgery and having to resort to pain management. I tell everybody at my gym to try this first before resorting to other dangerous methods recommended to me by the other people.

2 years ago, I was brutally hit by a car which caused me immense neck pain and sciatica. Dr. Bearden and Dr. Josh were great at fixingmy spinal alignment with their gentle traction method and rehab. I was lucky to find them and hopefully avoid any future chronic pain down the road.

Their spinal decompression therapy ended up being the best therapy for my grandfather. In fact, he wasn’t able to sit properly and donormal work around the house. But because of these great folks, he is now doing everything on his own without any support of a family member.

I found this clinic after being turned away from my regular doctors office because of “third party pay” after my car accident. Their Insurance dep’t was helpful in assisting me with resolving my case so that I could focus on my health and overall recovery.

Nashville accident and injury center treatment plans are quite easy to follow for treating the pain and ache in the body. I went to this doctor at the hard time of Covid; each and every staff member had taken a proper precaution while wearing a masks and gloves. Overall I am impressed with the careful measures they have taken. Within a few sessions, they reduced the back problem from my back and neck. It was an effective treatment and I strongly referring them high enough.
