Insurance Question from Carbonado, WA

Asked on 03/15/2012

How to prove I wasn’t injuried before the car accident? I was hit by a 14 yr old driver hit the building I was working. But before the accident I was going to my chiropractor and so the insurance company say's I was injuried before the accident. I was seeing my Chiropractor for neck pain but I'm hurting in the lower back and some procedure to deal with the pain. Thank Peg

If you have different pain from the accident that was caused by the other person, you will need to provide some proof of what your treatments were for. Your chiropractor should be able to provide records of the treatments you were receiving before the accident and the treatments that are needed since the accident. The insurance adjuster should be able to determine the difference in the treatments you are now receiving.When there is an injury from an accident, and the insurance company is representing the other party, they are usually not willing to make any payment until all treatments are completed. Ask the adjuster if they will be willing to pay for the lower back treatments and if there is a limit as to the number of treatments. You need to be aware of what they will be willing to pay for the treatment you are receiving.If the adjuster is uncooperative, ask to speak to a supervisor and explain the different treatments you are receiving versus what you were receiving before. Someone should be able to understand this.
