Auto Injuries Can Happen at 5 MPH or Less
If you've been in an accident, you are entitled to coverage of medical expenses regardless of fault. Let us help you through recovery with our expert care and stress-free case management!
What To Do After An Accident
Here are the first steps you should take after you're away from the scene of the accident and ready to start on the legal and medical process.
File a Claim
Call your insurance to report the accident and file a claim. Because injuries are not always immediately apparent after an accident, be careful about denying any injuries until you've had an exam.
Call a Chiropractor
It's important to get into a chiropractor within 24 hours of an accident if possible. An exam is covered under your PIP insurance no matter what.
Consult Your Attorney
Contact your attorney if your injuries are significant, your insurance is uncooperative, or if there is any confusion of fault of the accident.

How soon after an accident should I see a chiropractor?
The sooner you get into a chiropractor post-accident, the better. It is recommended to get an exam within 72 hours to assess injuries and customize a treatment plan.
Should I still see a chiropractor if I'm not in pain after an accident?
Even if the accident was minor, auto injuries can occur at 5 MPH or less because impact is not absorbed by the vehicle, it is absorbed by your body. Auto injuries can sometimes take weeks or months to manifest, but it's important to get into a chiropractor as soon as possible after an accident for a professional exam. Waiting could mean forfeiting your entitled Personal Injury Protection insurance coverage and the risk of hidden injuries causing problems down the road.
What does the auto injury treatment process look like?
Typically, the first visit will consist of talking through the accident and any impact you may be experiencing, taking x-rays, and an initial chiropractic exam and adjustment. Once we review the x-rays, we will make recommendations for treatment in following visits, which can include massage therapy, chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture, etc. If there is any treatment you need that we don't offer, we will refer you to other trusted professionals to get the integrated care you need.
Why is treatment cost-free? What is PIP insurance?
If your vehicle is insured in the state of Utah, your auto insurance is legally required to provide "Personal Injury Protection" (or "PIP") coverage for medical expenses in the case of an auto accident, whether you were at fault or not. We accept all insurances in Utah and work directly with your insurance to make the process as stress-free as possible for you.

I started seeing Dr. Olsen after I got in a car accident 6 weeks ago. I didn’t think I had gotten very injured but my pain increased a ton over the first week. I’m so glad that A: I decided to see someone after my accident and B: that I chose mountain valley wellness. Their staff is super friendly and they’ve made this challenging time so much easier.Mirinda
I was injured in a car accident 23 years ago and have suffered from chronic back pain since the accident. Meeting with Dr. Ward for adjustments has significantly decreased the pain I feel daily. His adjustments are never too much because he asks questions and takes the time to assess what your body needs and can handle.Jenn
Everyone at MVW makes you feel like family. I got in a car wreck and was leaving on a trip the next day. They pulled some strings to squeeze me in and my experience has been so positive.Nicole
I was in a car accident and he has been so amazing to help me out and get me back to square. He was gentle and only did what was needed to help me recover. Thanks so much, awesome group.Phil
I Am grateful for the skill, respect and efficiency of this practice. They have helped me with very serious problems, some of which I had other chiropractors try to solve but could not. I could not ask for a more wonderful service.Pam

I only have positive things to say about this office. When I first called to book an appointment with Dr. John Olsen they were extremely helpful on the phone. I asked a lot of questions and felt like I knew what to expect on my first visit. During my first visit I feel like it was a very thorough. Not only did he feel everything to find out what was going on but also did neck and back x-rays to find out any other underlying problems. This really sets his practice apart from any other chiropractic experiences I've had in the past.Alyssa
I have been seeing chiropractors(here and in other states) regularly since a bad car accident 25 years ago. They were helpful and I'd get some relief, but they were all the same. My neck got so bad and the adjustments were so painful, I got to the point I stopped letting them adjust it. I have had a completely different experience with Dr.Olsen. He isn't in the business of rushing his patients out with quick adjustments. He really works on your muscles and spends the time necessary to prepare you for the adjustment. He is the only one I've allowed to work on my neck for years, and my adjustments aren't painful. I have total trust in him and that means a lot to me!Robyn
