Once you’ve been in an accident, don’t wait to call us at Woodstock Chiropractic Clinic to schedule an examination for yourself and those involved in the car accident.

Know Your Rights


  1. You don’t need a referral to see one of our chiropractic doctors!
  2. Don’t sign any documents unless you are certain of the terms.
  3. You have the right to consult with an attorney.
  4. If you have Oregon auto insurance, you automatically have insurance coverage for reasonable and necessary treatment of your injuries.


If you’ve been involved in a car accident



  • If necessary, immediately call the police and/or ambulance
  • Do not move anyone who is injured (they may have sustained a neck injury)
  • If children were passengers in your car crash, be attentive to any injuries they may have. Sometimes children complain of pain. Oftentimes, they show pain in other ways. You may notice they are eating less than normal, waking up more frequently at night, difficulty with napping, more irritable, cry more than usual, more clingy, etc. If you suspect your child may be injured, doctors at Woodstock Chiropractic can evaluate your child and let you know if they are injured or not. If you are very concerned about a certain matter, you may have your child medically evaluated by their pediatrician as well.

Exchange Info


  • If able, exchange the following information with the other driver(s) involved in the accident:


    • Name
    • Passenger Names
    • License Plate Numbers
    • Insurance Information
    • Vehicle Makes and Models


    • Damage to any vehicle is over $1,500 (even if your vehicle was the only one in the crash),
    • Any vehicle is towed from the scene,
    • Injury or death resulted from this accident, or
    • Damages to anyone’s property other than a vehicle involved in this accident is more than $1,500.




  • Obtain names and contact information from any witnesses present
  • Take photographs of the damage to your car (if towed, take photos at the tow yard)
  • Take photos of any other vehicles involved in the accident
  • Get a copy of the police report, if there is one.
  • If you or your passengers were injured in the crash, you may want to open a claim with your car insurance. Personal Injury Protection (PIP) is the coverage that can start paying your medical bills right away. PIP coverage is included on all auto insurance policies in the State of Oregon. In Washington, PIP coverage is optional.

Think Legal


  • Understand all documentation you are given and do not sign anything you do not understand.
  • Woodstock Chiropractic Clinic can refer you to a trustworthy attorney if needed. Often, initial consultations are no charge and signing with an attorney is no cost up front. In the event you have trouble with your claim and/or recovery, an attorney can be a huge asset.

Will my car insurance pay for treatment?


  • Oregon is a “no-fault” state. This means that no matter whose fault it was, your car insurance will start paying your medical bills soon after you open a Personal Injury Protection claim. If you were not at-fault (you did not cause the crash), the car insurance of the person who hit you should pay your insurance back when everything is done.
  • If you have an Oregon auto policy and you were at-fault (you caused the accident), your Personal Injury Protection coverage will still pay your medical bills.
  • If you have a Washington policy (or any other state), you must find out if you have Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage on your car insurance plan, as it is optional in many states. If you do, you can seek care as normal. If you do not have PIP coverage and you did not cause the crash, you may be able to get treatment on lien. Getting treatment on lien necessitates you hiring an attorney, as there is no insurance to bill directly. An attorney will help protect you in this situation.
  • If you accept money to close your claim, usually the insurance will stop paying for your medical bills at that time as well. Most people wait until they are done with treatment to close their claim, as this ensures full treatment for the patient and allows medical bills to be paid before the case settles.
