Before you settle your case, answer these eight questions!
An injury evaluation helps to determine the extent and nature of a health issue, necessary to recommend medical treatments. Even minor whiplash can develop into serious injuries, if left untreated after a car accident. You shouldn't wait until after a car accident settlement to see a medical provider.
Do you have whiplash?
Do you have ligament damage?
Do you have bone damage?
Do you have muscle damage?
Do you have joint damage?
Should you miss work?
Do you have permanent impairment or disabilities?
How much will treatment cost?
Whiplash is many times misunderstood! It is normally caused by a collision that whips the heavy head of a person in relation to the body. This can result in stretching and tearing of the ligaments in the neck and back! Many times this can be seen on motion x-rays in a stair step effect on the alignment of the bones. This injury, though many times made fun of, can be serious. In many cases it is accompanied by a pinched nerve with radiating pain or numbness! This type of injury should be diagnosed as soon as possible using evaluation and x-rays so that proper treatment can be given. In many cases the injury can result in permanent impairment or disability!
