How to Start a Car Accident Injury Claim

Car accident injury claims can be overwhelming. This guide will walk you through the process to get started with a Car Injury Clinic like Absolute Health & Wellness

Steps to Start an Auto Accident Injury Claim

Step 1 - Make a Personal Injury Claim

Call your auto insurance company. Make a personal injury claim. They may take a few days, but they'll issue you a claim number and assign an insurance adjuster to your case. 

Step 2 - Book an Initial Assessment at Absolute Health & Wellness

We recommend booking an assessment as soon as possible. We'll get you in as soon as possible. 

Step 3 - Fill Out Your OCF-1 and OCF-5 Forms

Before you start your treatment, you'll need to fill out two important forms.

OCF 1: Is an overview of your personal details and pertinent details around your auto accident. 

OCF 5: This is Permission to Disclose - it's permission for our clinic to communicate with your insurance company

Your adjuster will mail a package to you, which will include this OCF 1 and OCF 5. You can also pick these up at our clinic, or download them here. Download the OCF 1 here and OCF 5 here

Step 4 - Initial Assessment at Absolute Health & Wellness

Come 15 mins early for the first appointment. 

We will need: a photocopy of your driver's license, your completed OCF 1 and OCF 5 (we'll send them to your adjuster), your benefits info you have benefits.

We'll then book you for your follow up appointments. 

Lastly, we will submit a treatment plan to your auto adjuster.
