Accidents happen. It’s unfortunate, but true. Often times, we know immediately when we have been injured in an accident and know we need to take action.
In other cases, we may not know for days or weeks that we suffered injuries. The design of late model vehicles leads to soft tissue injuries in collisions involving speeds of only 5mph in some cases, a speed we often don’t associate with any need to assure our continued health.
It’s the soft tissue injuries occurring in low speed collisions that often times don’t immediately show symptoms. In today’s environment, it is also imperative that you have a health care provider that is skilled in dealing with your attorney and/or insurance adjuster to assure you get proper settlement from your claim.
Here at A Minor Adjustment, we pride ourselves on working with all parties involved for the best interests of our patients. Click Here to Download an Auto Accident Form

The pain may subside, but the injury may still be there and the damage done by whiplash, even at 5mph, can have serious effects on the body.The damage to the soft tissue is often severe and medication will not treat the cause, merely the symptoms.
It is important to have informed consent when filing a medical claim and our office manager, Cyndi, would be happy to discuss your options.
