What To Do After an Auto Accident in Minnesota
If you are still at the scene of the car accident, it is essential to call the police.
Before dialing 911, check the extent of the injuries you and others have sustained. Let the 911 operator know if emergency services are required.
If everyone seems relatively unharmed, just wait for the police officer to arrive on the scene. In the meantime, you can begin taking photos of the accident with your smartphone.
Be sure to capture the damage to each vehicle, your visible injuries, traffic signals, weather conditions, and any witness information.
When the police officers arrive on the scene, they will evaluate the accident and document their findings in a police report.
Having all of this valuable documentation will come in handy later if you choose to file a claim and pursue compensation for your injuries and damages.
The Importance of Seeking Medical Treatment After a Car Wreck
The doctors at Bloomington Wellness Center can never emphasize enough the importance of seeking medical treatment after a car, truck, or bike crash.
It is essential to not just your physical recovery, but also your financial that you make an appointment with an experienced accident doctor.
Many times victims of motor vehicle accidents do not have any visible injuries and do not feel any signs of pain following their accident.
This is due to the release of adrenaline and other hormones to help the body cope with the car accident.
However, when these effects wear off, the pain symptoms settle-in days or weeks later, and by this time the insurance company is no longer willing to pay for your medical treatments.
Therefore, we recommend that all victims of accidents in Minnesota make an appointment to be evaluated by a professional accident injury doctor within 72 hours of the accident’s occurrence.
Legally injury victims should seek treatment as soon after the accident as possible to ensure insurance coverage of their case and improve chances of obtaining a settlement.
So do not wait until it is too late! Let one of our accident injury doctors determine once and for all if you have suffered any injuries that will appear later and cause you issues.

What to do if you were the victim of a motor vehicle accident?
There are three primary steps you need to focus on taking after being involved in a car accident that was not your fault. The first should be to call the police and documentation as much evidence as you can at the scene.
This includes gathering witness statements, taking pictures of the damaged vehicles, documenting traffic signals, and recording weather conditions.
This evidence, along with a police report from the officer that arrived on the scene, can prove extremely valuable during negotiations with the insurance companies.
Your first priority should be protecting your health and well-being, and your second should be protecting your financial well-being.

Why should you see a doctor regardless of pain or symptoms after an auto accident?
It is imperative to see a medical professional after a car accident.
While we recommend scheduling an appointment with an expert accident injury chiropractor who specializes in injuries caused in car accidents, any doctor should be able to diagnose your condition.
Most auto accident victims do not feel pain immediately after their accident unless they suffer a severe injury life-altering injury. However, this does not mean that most motor vehicle crash victims are not hurt.
The presence of pain after an accident is rare due to the release of adrenaline and other hormones at the time of the accident.
This is the body’s way of coping with trauma and therefore temporarily masks the pain you will be feeling in a few days.
So, it is essential to see a chiropractic doctor within 72 hours. They can determine whether you are actually injured and provide professional medical documentation of your injuries and treatments.
This will help hold insurance companies responsible for these expenses, so you do not have to pay out of pocket for injuries you did not cause,
Don’t wait until it is too late, get your injuries diagnosed early, and hold the insurance company responsible for the treatments you require after your wreck.
