Personal Injury

What is a Personal Injury?

A personal injury can have many causes such as auto accidents, assaults, product defects, and others. If you are experiencing pain due to circumstances that were out of your control, it’s important to make sure that you clearly understand the extent of your injuries. It is imperative that you receive proper treatment for them to minimize long-term costs and health consequences.

Getting Back to Normal

At Highland Park ChiroCare, we offer comprehensive evaluation and treatment of personal injuries. We are experts in rehabilitative therapy for accidents. We create individualized treatment and recovery plans to help you return to your regular activities pain-free. Education is key to learning about potential-long term consequences of your injury.  In turn, our doctor provides strategies for minimizing them. 

Our Treatments May Include

  • Manual therapy—Occasional adjustments, combined with soft tissue rehabilitation, designed to restore normal movement and position joints.
  • Soft tissue rehabilitation—Non-invasive therapies designed to return tight or damaged soft tissues throughout the body to regular motion, including massage therapy, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, shockwave therapy, stretching, and strength and range-of-motion exercises.
  • Brain trauma—Dr. Gerald Barnes is an expert in concussion management and “zingers” or whiplash that typically comes with auto accidents.
  • Laser therapy—We can alleviate your pain drug-free. Our laser therapy increases the range of motion at a faster speed than regular therapies

Working with Insurance or your Attorney

Our office can provide information to you on how to file a personal injury claim with your insurance.  We also can coordinate with your attorney’s office. If you do not have an attorney, we are happy to share the names of attorneys we have established relationships within the Dallas metro area. Before being seen at our office, you must inform our front desk staff that you wish to claim on your auto insurance or that you’re represented by a licensed attorney. We will follow up  with your insurance or attorney to get the necessary documentation prior to your initial visit. Failing to notify us of your payment intent may result in denial of claim or case.

Filing a claim through auto insurance may vary by company, but these steps may help you start the process:

  1. Contact the Police or DMV to file an accident report.

  2. Collect & compile all details about your accident.

  3. Call your insurance company or the responsible party’s insurance company right away; it is recommended to call from the scene if you’re safe and if it’s possible.

  4. They will walk you through the next steps and provide you with a claim number.

Using an attorney may be intimidating for some, but they are equipped to handle your accident from start to finish.

  1. Collect & compile all details about your accident.

  2. Contact an attorney or call our office for the names of attorneys we use to help our patients.

  3. Provide us with a Letter of Protection and all the contact information of your attorney prior to your initial visit.

If you are not sure what route to go, don’t get overwhelmed. Make an appointment and state that you were involved in an auto accident. We only file in-network claims for select insurance companies. Give your health insurance provider a call to ask what your policy covers and if there are any limitations under your policy. You are responsible for any costs not covered by your policy.
