I have been going to a chiropractor regularly and the insurance is paying for my dr bills but I'm curious at what point will they stop. I have had to miss work and can't use my left side without causing pain and numbness. After 6 mos I'm starting to get nervous that the insurance will stop cooperating and I will be stuck with an injury that prevents me from doing normal daily tasks. When should I seek more help from a lawyer?
You need to speak with a personal injury lawyer NOW! Trying to represent yourself is a losing proposition. Get a lawyer to review your claim before you do anything else. The consultation is free. You have nothing to lose and much to gain.

I am not your lawyer unless we enter into an engagement agreement in writing. This is general information that is given for legal education only. It is not legal advice, and it may not work for your specific situation. I strongly encourage you to consult with a local lawyer to get legal advice and help with your specific situation at your earliest convenience. I am licensed to practice law in Arizona.
The insurance company has an obligation to pay for all reasonably related medical treatment made necessary because of their insured's negligence. Eventually, they will likely have you see a doctor they hire to write an opinion saying you are fine and don't need anymore treatment. However, to simply stop paying for treatment after they have accepted liability and paid for your care would be a bad idea for them. I agree that to protect your interests, you should contact a personal injury attorney to make sure you keep getting the treatment you need.
