Auto Injuries Q&A
What are auto injuries?
Auto injuries are injuries that you sustain during a car accident. Seeing a medical provider right away (within 14 days) after the accident is the best way to ensure eligibility for personal injury protection insurance benefits.
Even if you don’t have symptoms immediately after a car accident, you could still have an injury. At least 65% of injured victims who go to the Emergency Room after an accident have missed and undiagnosed injuries. These injuries may not be life-threatening, but can result in a great amount of pain and functional deficits over time. See the experts at Feel Amazing Institute as soon as possible after an auto accident.
What are the symptoms of auto injuries?
Common auto injuries include whiplash, fractures, strains, head injuries, and spine or joint damage. You may experience some of the following symptoms after a car accident:
- Neck pain
- Back pain
- Joint discomfort
- Ongoing pain
- Decreased range of motion
- Reduced mobility
You may even experience loss of sleep, inability to think, or concentrate, visual disturbances, dizziness, fatigue, depression, and mood disorders.
Your symptoms could be mild, moderate, or severe and debilitating. If you or a loved one has life-threatening injuries after a car accident, call 911.
