Even At Fault Drivers Qualify

Were you ruled At Fault for a Motor Vehicle Accident? You are still able to come in and be evaluated absolutely FREE by one of our expert providers. Even At Fault Driver's have access to Medical Payments Coverage through your insurance, which means you have access to medical care with no out of pocket expenses. Medical Payments Coverage is mandated by the State of Colorado and covers all drivers and passengers in any vehicle involved in a Motor Vehicle Accident, even the At Fault Driver.

Everything You Need to Know About Auto Accidents

Frequently Asked Questions

There are several avenues available to victims of car accidents. If you are not at fault you have access to use Medical Payment Coverage which you are already paying for through your own insurance. Medical Payments Coverage is separate from your property damage insurance and is used to cover medical expenses related to injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident. By State Law using your Medical Payments Coverage can not raise or in any way negatively affect your insurance rates or premiums.

Other options for covering your medical expenses are going through the “at fault” party’s insurance, or the person who is responsible for the accident. Their insurance can be billed by your providers directly and it is their responsibility to cover medical expenses related to injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident caused by their insured (the at fault).

The option to pay for your services yourself and then ask to be reimbursed later by the insurance is also an option, although not recommended as the insurance company may not agree to cover the services you chose to seek. It is always recommended to seek treatment with a qualified and licensed provider. The treatments they prescribe or recommend are much more likely to be covered by the insurance.

Yes. Accidents at speeds of only 6.8mph carry enough force to cause serious injury to the ligaments and joints in your neck. Even low speed injuries should be evaluated by a provider who is familiar with auto accident injuries and low speed collision injuries.

Absolutely. The ER’s job is to assess you for life threatening injuries. They look for internal bleeding, fractures, and trauma to the brain. Oftentimes the ER will not perform the detailed orthopedic examinations to test you for whiplash, sprains, and strains. Instead they typically leave that up to your Primary Care Physician. Even if you had an MRI or CT scan at the hospital, those will not catch the detailed injuries to cervical ligaments.

No. In fact, many popular Chiropractic clinics are not allowed to treat acutely injured auto accident patients. Many Chiropractors and even PCP’s are not familiar with injuries sustained in motor vehicle accidents and will often refer those patients out to providers who are more experienced or specialized in these types of injuries.
 

Colorado State Law states you have 3 years from the date of the accident to file a claim. We recommend you obviously seek treatment immediately after an accident, but if you don’t realize you are injured for several days or even weeks after the accident, you can seek treatment for your injuries up to 3 years after the accident.

If you have been involved in a Motor Vehicle Accident either as a driver or a passenger in a car, you have access to Medical Payments Coverage through your insurance, which means you have access to medical care with no out of pocket expenses. Medical Payments Coverage is mandated by the State of Colorado at a minimum amount of $5,000. This coverage is separate from your property damage coverage and by law using this MedPay coverage can not raise your auto rates or premium. This special coverage covers all drivers and passengers in any vehicle involved in a Motor Vehicle Accident in the State of Colorado. To use your medpay you simply go to your provider and let them know you were in a Motor Vehicle Accident. The Medical Provider will treat your injuries under your Medical Payments Coverage up to the allowable amount. 

Digital Radiographic Motion Analysis

Digital Radiographic Motion Analysis also allows us to assess a patient’s spine for loss of motion segment integrity (hereinafter referred to as LMSI) relates to the movement of two adjacent vertebral bodies as measured in flexion and extension. The “loss” in integrity relates to the alteration in movement such as a loss in range of motion or movement beyond what would be considered normal limits. Any significant loss in the range of motion or a gain beyond the acceptable normal range in the motion segment of the spine will result in an over-compromise of the adjacent levels of the spine. The adjacent levels will now be taxed beyond normal and the excessive wear and tear making the adjacent levels more susceptible to injury.
The use of Digital Radiographic Motion Analysis also allows us to determine possible impairment to the patient from their injuries. The diagnosis-related estimate (DRE) method is the principal methodology used to evaluate spinal AOMSI impairment in the fourth and fifth editions of the AMA Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment (AMA Guides). In the AMA Guides, Sixth Edition, impairment ratings are calculated using the diagnosis-based impairment (DBI) method that uses five impairment classes determined by diagnoses and specific criteria, adjusted by consideration of non-key factors and grade modifiers. The following factors must be considered to determine if AOMSI is present: 1) flexion/extension radiographs are performed when the individual is at maximum medical improvement and are technically adequate; 2) the proper methodology is used in obtaining measurements of translation and angular motion; 3) normal translation and angular-motion thresholds consistent with the literature are used in determining AOMSI. Imaging modalities such as videofluoroscopy, digital fluoroscopy, and upright/motion magnetic resonance imaging cannot be used to establish an AOMSI permanent impairment using the AMA Guides. A number of technical factors can affect the image quality associated with measurements of AOMSI, including film centering, artifacts, poor edge resolution, endplate normal variations and spurring, and use of analog rather than digital radiography.

Digital Radiographic Motion Analysis is the most accurate way to assess a patient’s spine for injuries sustained in a Motor Vehicle Accident. This type of study is the most accurate way to diagnose Whiplash, also called cervical acceleration–deceleration (or CAD) syndrome, which is a neck injury commonly caused by car accidents, falls, and contact sports. It results from a quick, jerking motion that forces the neck beyond its normal range of motion. This study can detect injuries that were missed at the ER and oftentimes missed by even the most skilled provider. Digital Radiographic Motion Analysis allows us to see what is termed Alteration of Motion Segment Integrity or AOMSI.

This is a term described by the American Medical Association as a change in the biomechanical function of any two segments or vertebra in relation to their motion to the above or below segment, where there can be increased or decreased motion. After Cervical Acceleration-Deceleration (CAD) Injuries the ligaments in between the spinal vertebrae can be torn or damaged. This allows the vertebra or vertebrae to have too MUCH motion or hypermobility which can lead to facet injuries and if severe enough neurological symptoms in the hands and feet and the risk for paralysis.

Free Patient Guide

Motor Vehicle Accidents (MVA) cause much more than just a sore neck and headaches. Research has shown that even a low speed collision of 6.8 miles per hour (MPH) can cause serious damage to your cervical spine. Damage that may not be immediately apparent and difficult to diagnose. Because some of the injuries may not show up for days, weeks, or even years after the accident it is extremely important that you are seen by a provider that is able to diagnose and treat these injuries effectively. These injuries can even occur when there is very little damage to your vehicle. Treating patients involved in motor vehicle accidents is completely different than typical aches and pains. The physical forces applied to the spine during a motor vehicle accident can cause unseen and very difficult to diagnose injuries. These injuries include:

  • Damage to the Posterior Longitudinal Ligament (PLL)
  • Damage to the Supraspinous Ligament (SSL)
  • Damage to the Anterior Longitudinal Ligament (ALL)
  • Damage to the Posterior Longitudinal Ligament (PLL)
  • Damage to the Supraspinous Ligament (SSL)
  • Damage to the Anterior Longitudinal Ligament (ALL)

Our goal is not just to get our patients out of pain, but to correct the actual damage done to the spine after a motor vehicle accident.

 

Our clinic staff is trained in the absolute latest techniques for the treatment of auto and work-related injuries. Often, auto accident related injuries must be treated much differently and use special techniques other than typical Chiropractic care.

 

Our caring and trained staff can get you in the same day you call, to ensure prompt and effective treatment of your injuries.
