MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENTS
WHAT SHOULD YOU DO IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING AN ACCIDENT?
Seek care from your primary health care practitioner (Chiropractor or Medical Doctor) for the proper assessment of your injuries. *Please note that it is NOT necessary to receive a medical doctor referral to receive care at Burlington Sports and Spine following your accident.
File an injury accident report with the police. Remember to keep a copy for your records. Complete the Notice of Loss and Proof of Claim Form. Make sure you keep a copy for your records and send the signed copy to your insurance company within the following time frames: For sprains, strains, or whiplash I or II, you must submit this form within 10 days of the accident to access the “Diagnostic and Treatment Protocols” coverage. If you have been diagnosed in this category you will have 90 days to access up to 21 pre-approved visits from your chiropractor.
For other injuries or if you choose not to access the “Diagnostic and Treatment Protocols” coverage you must submit this form within 30 days of the accident. After this form is submitted your insurance company will contact you.
