Personal injury is a legal term that describes injury to your body, including mental, emotional, and physical injury, instead of injury to your property or reputation. Personal injury claims are filed to obtain compensation for injuries you sustain. Personal injury claims are often filed for auto accidents, workplace accidents, product defect accidents, assault, and industrial disease problems such as asbestosis, silicosis, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Personal injury protection is the term used for benefits in states, including Oregon, that have mandatory no-fault auto insurance coverage. People involved in auto accidents in Oregon, regardless of who is at fault, are eligible to receive natural health care services including chiropractic and massage therapy, as well as other health services. Any person involved in an auto accident in Oregon is entitled to a minimum of $15,000 of personal injury protection benefits — an amount the Oregon Department of Motor Vehicles has determined necessary to cover your health care expenses following your accident. Washington has enacted similar laws.
Personal injury protection benefits will cover the cost of personal injury chiropractor care, as well as other products or devices that may help speed your healing. Beneficial products covered by these benefits include cervical pillows, low back support belts, in-home traction units, and other equipment intended to accelerate your rehabilitation. Contact Hosmer Chiropractic Health to schedule a visit as soon as possible following your motor vehicle accident to help speed your healing, reduce your likelihood of long-term health problems, and get the care you need. Personal injury chiropractor at Hosmer Chiropractic can help you determine the type and duration of care you will need to make a full recovery.
Visiting a personal injury chiropractor is one of the most effective therapies in reducing your soft tissue pain and dysfunction and restoring the strength and integrity of your injured tissues. Dr. Hosmer and Doctor DeVasto use chiropractic adjustments and other manual medicine techniques to resolve your joint pain and muscle spasms and improve range of motion in your affected joints or body segments. Long-term health benefits following auto accidents may best be achieved when chiropractic care is paired with massage therapy. The doctors can counsel you further on the benefits of both chiropractic and massage therapy in treating your personal injury.

Hosmer Chiropractic has successfully treated many people injured in auto accidents and other types of accidents. Listed below is a testimonial from a patient who has benefited from personal injury care at Hosmer Chiropractic Health:
“I was hit by a car in June and as a result suffered from neck pain. I couldn't ride my bike longer than 1.5 hours without the pain returning. I'd seen two other Chiropractors and had little success in seeing the pain go away. I went to Seth thinking he might have insight as a cyclist himself how best to treat me. I've been seeing him now for 3 weeks and the pain is all but gone ... The biggest difference between Seth and the others was his soft tissue work combined with adjustments.”
