Can I Have Accident Injuries Even If There Is No Damage to My Car?
Accidents can be surprising, even more when there is no damage to your car. If you were in a car accident that showed no sign of damage, could you have sustained accident injuries? Impact Medical Group of St. Petersburg shares what you can do to avoid unexpected hardships from a car accident.
Are you sure there was no damage to your car? Maybe it appears to be minor like small paint marks or scratches. It may even go unnoticed without a detailed inspection. The same mindset goes for your body. Often, soft-tissue injuries like whiplash and back pain take a while to show symptoms. Working with medical professionals can help you identify injured areas and pain triggers. Objective injuries like broken bones or torn ligaments are easier to prove in court with hard evidence while subjective injuries are only reported by the victim. The former is easily submitted to insurance companies while the latter can only be verbally recorded by the involved party.
For those that have pre-existing medical conditions, minor accidents may have more serious repercussions. These individuals may be elderly, frail, or easily susceptible to injury so less force may be required to cause injuries. Whether it is back and neck pain or leg and arm pain, our knowledgeable team can help. We work closely with you to create a personalized treatment plan that will get you moving again.
