Dr. Mike Kochanski of Celar Chiropractic is a chiropractor Elmhurst residents often see after a car accident. Dr. Mike recommeds that after a crash, you get medical help as soon as possible, even if you don’t think you are hurt, as you could have serious internal injuries that you are not immediately aware of. Most injuries from minor auto accidents are due to whiplash or other soft tissue injuries, which may not show up until several hours after the accident. If you are asked by anyone (such as the other party, your insurance adjuster or the police) at the accident site if you are injured, you should say you don’t know, but that you will see a specialist – such as us– for a complete evaluation. People often are unaware that they are injured, and it may be difficult to claim medical damages later if you are recorded as saying you are unhurt.
