While chiropractors are best known for treating bad backs, one of the most common reasons people see a chiropractor is actually after they’ve been in a car accident.
And some of the most common injuries people suffer in a car accident are whiplash and concussion. These can seem like minor injuries because sometimes, the symptoms won’t even present themselves for a few days or even weeks. But they can have long-lasting effects, which typically means medical treatment (along with some high costs).
If you’ve been injured in a car accident, it isn’t just the pain and discomfort you need to worry about. In some cases, figuring out how to pay for your medical bills and lost wages can be the most difficult part.
If you carry the right car insurance coverage, you should be able to file a claim to be compensated for your injuries. And more often than not, that compensation comes by a settlement offer from your insurance company.
Settlements vary from company to company and case to case, but if you’re like most people, you want to have a good idea of what to expect.
In this article, we’ll discuss the average settlement for whiplash and concussion and which medical treatment options are available to you.
