Personal injury refers to an injury of the body or mind usually caused by someone else’s negligence leading towards a tort lawsuit.
Common Personal Injuries are results of:
- Car Accidents

- Bicycle Accidents
- Pedestrian Accidents
- Slips and Falls Accident

One form of documentation is your medical care. Our team at Florida Spine and Injury is here to help you heal from your accident and have the documentation you need for compensation.
Our experienced Chiropractors form individualized treatment plans for each patient’s recovery process.
We pride ourselves on treating people’s injuries with safe drug-free techniques that not only reduce the pain but also treat the root problem.
How soon after an accident should you seek chiropractic care?
Immediately after the accident is best - some say within 72 hours, but the sooner the better.
If you wait to seek medical care then there is a gap in your records leaving the other party room to say your injuries are not as severe.
In the state of Florida, you must go within 14 days from the accident or you are forfeiting your PIP coverage.
It is important for you to get your injuries treated as soon as possible not only for the legal reasons but for your health. The sooner you begin treatment the sooner you will feel better again.
Our chiropractors have experience dealing with personal injuries and know what is best when it comes to caring for these types of injuries.
Many victims in personal injury accidents do not even have pain symptoms until days or weeks after the incident.
Victims tend to have trouble completing regular tasks because of the pain, stiffness or soreness of their body. Elderly victims who already have regular pain say their symptoms increase after they have been involved in a personal injury accident.
So many of these accidents affect a person’s neck or spine which is why chiropractors are the top sought after treatment when it comes to personal injury care.
Personal Injury Chiropractors primarily deal with whiplash, soft tissue injuries, musculoskeletal injuries, and lumbar strain and sprains. By seeking chiropractic treatment your joint mobility will improve and your odds of having long-term, soft-tissue damages will decrease.
What documentation does the chiropractor provide?
Our personal injury chiropractors know how to properly document everything the way the insurance companies need it.
We document each specific symptom and the treatment provided for each issue.
We also make sure it is billed so they will deem your treatment necessary and included it in your settlement. Each treatment has to be plainly laid out in the doctors medical and billing records.
Our team has experience working with insurance companies to ensure our patients experience a hassle-free recovery.
What does the diagnosis process entail?
Typically, chiropractors examine the entire spine to for any misalignments. Check for joint restrictions, intervertebral disc injuries, ligament injuries, muscle spasms, tightness or tenderness.
It's also common for a chiropractor to examine your walk and posture for a better understanding of your body’s movements to help them diagnose your injuries.
An x-ray, MRI, or CT scan may be done to confirm your diagnosis and look for any degenerated changes you may have had before the accident.
The diagnostic images and neurological and physical evaluation will help the chiropractor determine the best treatment plan for you.
What are the Most Common Reasons for Personal Injury Accidents?
Automobile, boating, and bicycle accidents are all commonly cause because the person controlling the vehicle is inattentive. Too often people are checking smartphones and trying to multitask instead of focusing all of their attention on the road resulting in accidents that cause injuries to everyone involved.
Drivers are often so distracted they are even the main cause for pedestrian accidents.
Often slips and falls are caused by hazard walkways such as ice. Slips and falls are the second most common work injury accident leaving overexertion as the number one cause for an employee to get hurt at work.
The top sports injury is related to overuse. Athletes are hard on their bodies and tend to overdo it making them more accident-prone. The continuous repetition can cause the body more harm than good most of the time.
Product accidents are typically caused by defects in the products. For any possible foreseen issues with a product are grounds for a settlement.
