Have an Auto Injury in Greensboro, NC? Here are the Next Steps
Make sure you immediately attend to your injuries. Then carefully consider these important steps.
Schedule an Exam in Greensboro
Schedule an exam with a chiropractor within 24 hours of a fall, accident, or auto injury in Greensboro. Even if you feel your injuries are minor, a consultation with one of our doctors is always done at no charge.
Report the Auto Accident
Report an accident to the police and your own insurance company. If the injury occurred on someone else's property, immediately notify the owner, landlord, or manager of the property.
Talk to an Attorney
Consult with an attorney. Make sure you understand your rights. Most attorneys will provide an initial consultation at no charge. We will be happy to provide a list of attorneys with extensive experience.
Do not give statements about the accident to anyone other than the police.
Do not miss your scheduled medical/chiropractic appointments. Doing so may create the false impression that your injuries were not serious, that you weren't making your best effort to get well, or that you made your injuries worse by failing to adhere to the recommended treatment.
Do not sign any documents from your insurance company without consulting with an attorney. Many insurance companies will quickly try to get you to sign a release from further liability by offering a small amount of money (usually a few hundred dollars). Once a release is signed, you can't go back and ask for more, even if you're still hurt or get worse (which may happen if your injuries are left untreated).
Do not allow the liability insurance company to review your medical records without consulting an attorney.
