MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENT
Have You Been In A Vehicle Accident?
At Uthrive, we aim to get you feeling, moving and performing optimally. This most certainly applies after a motor vehicle accident (MVA). We are a unique multidisciplinary clinic dedicated to helping you facilitate your health and wellness objectives. We provide chiropractic, physiotherapy, massage therapy, acupuncture and fitness/personal training all under one roof.
If you live in Alberta, you are entitled to accident benefits coverage regardless of whether you were at fault or not. You do not need to see your medical doctor before starting treatment. You can get started with treatment right away by seeing any of our Chiropractors or our Physiotherapist. They are primary health care practitioners that can provide initial assessments and treatments.
We also offer direct billing to your insurance company at Uthrive.
WHAT ARE THE STEPS OF MVAS?
Dealing with motor vehicle accidents is stressful and we want to help you. Below are the steps to make the process easier.
File Accident Report With Police
Contact your insurance company immediately
You must file both an accident claim AND injury claim. Then they will assign you to an adjuster.
You need to tell them you are filing BOTH claims because the adjuster dealing with the accident claim is different than the adjuster looking after your injury claim.
Book an initial MVA chiropractic or physiotherapy appointment at our office
It is recommended that you book an initial appointment within 10 days of your accident to assess pre-approved treatment defined under "Diagnostic and Treatment Protocols".
Complete a Notice of Loss and Proof of Claim (AB-1 Form)
Our practitioners will fill-out an AB-2 form and submit both to your insurance company.
Provide the clinic with the following information as soon as it becomes available to you:
Name of the insurance company
Name of adjuster dealing with your injury claim and their contact information (i.e. phone, fax, email)
The date of the accident
