Car Accident Claims & Settlement Process
At Arkansas Chiropractic Group, we specialize in treating auto accident patients and working with those who have sustained injuries through the car accident claims and settlements process.
When treating someone who has been in an accident, we are looking through a different lens to find common injuries associated with a collision. It can often take up to 2-3 days before you recognize post-accident symptoms and truly feel the effects of an accident. We are equipped and familiar with treating patients who have been injured in a car accident.
We also understand that when you are out of work or short on cash due to a car accident, medical bills are the last thing you need. Our goal is to help take the confusion out of the car claim process and help you get the settlement you deserve.
To help outline this process, we have listed some commonly asked questions about the car accident claims and settlements process.
Q: Should I call Arkansas Chiropractic Group first?
Yes. If you’ve been injured in a car accident, make an appointment with us before contacting your insurance company. An insurance company looking to make a reasonable offer will require that your injuries are documented. Documentation from a doctor can lead to your claim being worth three or four times as much.

Q. What do I need for my first appointment with Arkansas Chiropractic Group?
You don’t need any documentation upon arrival. Letting us know that you were in an accident is enough for us to get started. Once you’re signed in, we will get you in for treatment and our office will work on getting the accident report and your insurance information.
Q. I’ve filed my car accident claim. What happens next?
After you are released from treatment, we recommend calling your insurance company one week from your release. After your visit, we will send all the documentation from your visit to the insurance company or your attorney. If you have any questions after you’ve talked to your insurance company, give us a call.
Q. What is the usual turn-around time for a settlement?
There are a lot of variables that can affect the amount of time it takes for a claim to be processed. On a perfect car accident claim, it can take up to two weeks to settle. If you are working with an attorney it may take longer.
Q. Why not settle with my car insurance company first?
After a car accident, it is tempting to make a quick settlement with the car insurance company. Quick settlements often mean smaller payouts, and you likely won’t be able to settle for nearly as much as your car claim is worth. If you have been in an accident, contact Arkansas Chiropractic Group and we will walk you through the car accident claims and settlements process to help you get the compensation you need.
