Getting the Insurance Company to Pay Gets Tricky…
Many car accident victims experienced back and neck pain. Even insurance companies will agree. When your body gets thrashed around in a violent crash it causes pain and stiffness. Which often requires some medical treatment.
However, if you’re experiencing a prolonged recovery, insurance companies are quick to deny your treatment. Generally, they will first argue that your prolonged treatment wasn’t necessary. Then they will claim that you are malingering (a fancy way to say that you’re faking it).
Next, they may claim that you had some type of pre-existing issue that is really the cause of the pain. Remember that back twinge you had three years ago while helping your brother move? Well, if you got some physical therapy for it, the insurance will claim that’s why you got all of that treatment after your accident.
If for some reason you had delayed receiving care after your accident, the insurance company will also argue that the treatment simply was unrelated to the accident. For example, if you didn’t go to the ER after your accident because you didn’t have health insurance, that may be held against you.
That said, if you’ve been in a car accident, and your recovery is more complicated than you had hoped, give us a call.
