Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and Auto Accidents

By | Auto Injury, Neck Pain, Uncategorized | No Comments

Car crashes are all too common in the DFW area.  Driver inattention, impatience, and sometimes just a mistake can change a person’s whole world, sometimes permanently.  Even in low speed collisions, soft tissue injuries are common.  If they are left untreated, they will lead to scar tissue formation.  Depending on the injury location, the scar tissue can cause nerves to get trapped, discs to weaken and even brain damage (scarring in the brain).

Dr. Zuber has treated car accident injuries for over 20 years.  He is certified in Whiplash Injury Biomechanics and Traumatology through Dr. Art Croft, from the Spine Research Institute.  Dr. Zuber uses multiple soft tissue techniques that help minimize scar tissue.  This combined with chiropractic manipulation is very effective at treating these types of injuries.

PIP & AUTO INSURANCE

Navigating auto crashes with insurance carriers can be tricky as well.  If another person is found at fault, that car’s insurance typically will not pay for your treatment.  This can make finding treatment difficult.  Dr. Zuber is typically able to take these cases when others won’t.  Oftentimes, a car policy will have a Personal Injury Protection (PIP) provision.  Texas requires that every driver is offered at least $2,500 of PIP insurance, but drivers can typically obtain coverage for $5,000 or $10,000 to get additional financial protection. Personal injury protection coverage in Texas provides coverage for you and your vehicle’s passengers if there are injuries due to a car accident, no matter which party was at-fault for the collision. PIP covers treatment as you go, much like health insurance.  It also covers things like lost wages, domestic assistance (if warranted), etc.

If you are involved in a motor vehicle collision, seek medical attention quickly.  With timely care, Frisco car accident chiropractor Dr. Mark Zuber will help you to recover from your auto injury.

Yours in health,
