Physical Therapy (PT) or Chiropractic Treatment??

Differences between physical therapy and chiropractic care for personal injury cases

In the past 5 years, I have had several conversations with people about the differences and benefits of receiving physical therapy versus chiropractic care following a personal injury and how this decision affects a personal injury case. Many doctors who I work with believe that Physical Therapy is trending, and that it is a more respected form of therapy than is chiropractic care. Some of these doctors even happen to be chiropractors!! It is my belief that both types of treatment work and personally, I have no problem having either chiropractic care or physical therapy on any of my cases. There are, however, several differences that people should know about.

Dealing with Non-Standard Insurance Companies

One of the main factors that goes into determining whether or not you have a “good case”, after getting into a car accident, is the quality of the insurance company that the person who caused the accident has. The exact same accident claim will have two completely different values depending on the insurance company paying the claim.

Marketing For Personal Injury Attorneys, Is It Worth It?

Phone and internet marketing for personal injury attorneys

Over the course of my almost 19 years of practice, I have been contacted numerous times by companies that want to market my law firm on the internet or send me potential clients from a 1-800 call center. Like everyone else out there, sure, I would love to expand my business, but at what cost is the risk worth the reward?

Overtreatment For A Personal Injury Claim

Treating too much with a doctor for a personal injury claim

One of the first questions a new client usually asks is, “How long will this whole process take?” Unfortunately, there is no exact answer for that question. Some people respond quickly to medical treatment, while others take longer to heal. Some insurance companies settle their claims speedily, others drag their claims out in effort to hold on to their money as long as they possibly can. The average case that I handle with soft tissue injuries generally settles somewhere between 4 and 8 months from the date of the injury unless of course the client gets caught up in overtreatment.

Why To Have Your Clients Get Their Own Medical Records

Saving money for your clients by having them obtain their own medical records

Often times I will ask my clients to get me their medical records either from a hospital, clinic or radiology facility. While I do not like to inconvenience my clients, this practice can often save the client anywhere from twenty five dollars up to several hundreds of dollars in the long run. Medical providers are now charging ridiculous rates to copy and mail out their records. While they are regulated by the state as to how much they can legally charge, these fees are always much higher than anyone would expect to obtain their medical records.
