Auto Accident Injuries

What You Should Know If You Have Been Involved In An Auto Accident

 

Did you know that one of the most stressful aspects of living in modern life is dealing with the problems that arise after an auto accident? Were you also aware that some auto accident injuries are hidden and are seldom detected for months or even years? As a result, two things can occur when an injury is not taken care of properly, or the accident victims settle their case with the insurance companies before getting evaluated from a Doctor trained in soft tissue injuries.

 

... This Could Be A Big Mistake.

 

Why? Because once you settle your case, you lose the right to have your insurance company pay for treatment if you need it. A good rule of thumb is to be informed of your rights and then make a decision. It is our position that if you were indeed injured, you should get the care you need to get you back to the way you felt and functioned just before the accident.

 

It is not the responsibility of the insurance company to pay for anything more than that. They are not responsible for pre-existing injuries; only the injuries sustained from the accident. Even if you are just sore, you should get checked out immediately because you may experience pain, numbness, headaches, muscle stiffness, fatigue, and other problems including arthritis many months down the road. Remember, nothing is more important than your health, especially when you start to lose it.

Whiplash Injury

 

It has been documented in both medical and scientific studies that the damage to the vehicle is not related to the whiplash injuries suffered by the passengers of the vehicle. Vehicle damage is not proportional to passenger injury. Vehicle damage does not predict the degree of whiplash injury, the severity of symptoms, the duration of required treatment, the probability of suffering from chronic pain, or the acceleration of arthritis to the joints of the neck. Research has proven that vehicles that do not bend (sustain damage) in a collision will move more. The more a vehicle moves during a collision, the greater the inertial loads to the cervical spine. The larger the inertial loads to the cervical spine, the greater the soft tissue injuries to the joints of the neck.

 

 

 

Healing Time

 

It can take as long as 12 months for the healing process of injured soft tissues to become complete.

(Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise, 1986)

 

  • The average time for an appropriately treated whiplash-injured patient to achieve maximum improvement is 7 months 1 week. (Spine, 1994)
  • Some whiplash-injured patients take 2 years to stabilize and to reach their maximum improvement.
