Chiropractic Care for Automobile Injuries is Covered Under Oregon Law.
You do not need to go through another provider or be referred by a medical doctor or lawyer. Dr. Aungst is a primary care provider and you can come to us directly and begin care. Also, if you are currently under care and your injury is not resolving, you are permitted to change providers at your own discretion without referral. It is your body and your health.
Special Instructions for Patients Injured in Automobile Accidents
Oregon is a “no-fault” insurance state. That means that regardless of who is assumed or determined to be at fault, your insurance is billed for the care provided to you, not the other driver’s company. The two companies then work things out behind the scenes. If contacted by a representative from the other driver’s insurance, it is best to have them just contact your agent. They may sound very nice but they are not on your side. Their job is to get the claim closed, whether you are done with your care or not.
