My name is Brock Showalter, and own Showalter Law Group, PA. I and my affiliated attorneys have recovered our clients millions of dollars. One of the biggest concerns that I have is that insurance claims adjustors prevent millions of people from getting the help that they need because they convince people that they do not need help. It costs absolutely nothing to see a personal injury attorney, and in almost all cases you will get four to five times more money with a personal injury attorney than you would by trying to handle the claim yourself.
In this series of articles, we are going to give you the insider secrets about auto accidents. We are going to cover auto accidents from the time a person is in one to the settlement for injuries. We will explain what to do if you are in an auto accident, why you should not talk to the insurance claims adjustors, and how to get the most money for your injuries.
In the last article, we discussed the ways in which auto accident injuries really work. In this one, we will discuss how to get the medical care that you need after an accident.

Remember in the last article that Jake first went to the ER out of an abundance of caution. If you recall, he also did some other treatment that gave him substantial improvement. We are going to explore the nature of that treatment a little further in this article and how to get it all paid for!
Remember that due to the fact that the US is the only civilized nation in the world that doesn’t provide a decent healthcare system to its citizens, Jake was afraid that his health insurance coverage might have lapsed. It turns out that he was correct; and he went into the ER without insurance. Of course, he was only there for a few hours, but had extensive testing while there. A few weeks later, he gets a bill for over $13,000.00! Now Jake is really panicked as he does not have any way to pay these costs.
Here is another insider secret in the personal injury world that the insurance companies don’t want you to know! If Jake goes to see a personal injury attorney, that attorney will work only on a contingency basis. That means that the attorney will not get paid unless money is recovered for Jake. Personal injury attorneys will also help with the medical bills! Almost any personal injury attorney can negotiate with almost any hospital in a situation like Jake’s. The attorney will simply get the hospital to agree to file a lien on the case with the attorney, and in a case like this Jake can simply focus on getting better and not have to worry about paying this huge hospital bill.
Now we will discuss another huge problem with the US healthcare system that personal injury attorneys can fix in cases like Jake’s. Remember that he still had pain and soreness after this ER and initial doctor visit that was not getting better at all, and that he then sought chiropractic care.
This is another dirty little secret in the personal injury world. Insurance companies and even some doctors refuse to tell you what type of healthcare will really work. Hospitals and doctors can only treat symptoms and pain for people in these types of accidents. In accidents like Jake’s, sometimes no broken bones or fractures will show on X-rays or MRIs. Jakes’ type of injuries are referred to as soft tissue injuries. The soft tissues run all throughout our bodies, especially along the neck and spinal column. Soft tissue injuries explain Jake’s type of pain.
The best type of treatment for accident injuries will target the soft tissues. Physical therapy and chiropractic treatment are the very best types of therapy for soft tissue injuries. If you recall, Jake sought chiropractic care and after a regular and consistent course of treatment began to see real improvement in his symptoms.
Of course, you may now be wondering how Jake is going to pay for all of this care since he is lacking health insurance. Personal injury attorneys can help with this issue as well! While attorneys won’t tell you that you have to see certain medical providers, most of them do work with doctors, therapists, and chiropractors regularly. Most of these providers will agree not to bill patients at all, and just like the hospitals, will file a lien on the case with the attorney and agree to get paid out of the final settlement. The right personal injury attorney will guide you in getting the medical care that you need!
In this article, we discussed how to get the medical care that you need. In the next article, we are going to discuss how insurance claims adjustors harm patients.
