What if I am treated for my injuries by a non-MD? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

The auto insurance industry is biased in the US in favor of mainstream, Western treatments by doctors, hospitals and medical clinics. It tends to give less weight to treatments provided by physical therapists, chiropractors, acupuncturists and other non-traditional medical providers. You may receive compensation for medical costs incurred from non-traditional treatments, but the multiplier used in the damages formula will usually be less.
