Why You Should be Examined after a Car Accident

Car accidents are traumatic! They are something you cannot prepare for mentally or physically in the few seconds you may have before impact. Sometimes, the damage to your car may seem minimal, but history proves that you can be injured considerably more than you would expect from a "fender bender". You may not have any broken bones, but what about the "soft tissue"? The ligaments and tendons may be inflamed, a muscle may be torn. Medication will relieve the immediate pain but will not cure the problem and that is why you need to see Dr. Kurth. If you wait too long more scar tissue will form over the injury making your pain increase and hamper a timely recovery.

Top Ten Reasons Why You Should be Examined after a car accident :

  1. You may be injured and not know it.
  2. Injuries such as whiplash usually may not show any symptoms for hours, days or weeks later.
  3. Medical professionals all agree that the first 72 hours after an accident are the most critical and a time treatment can be the most effective.
  4. The majority of injuries from automobile accidents occur at speeds of 6-12 MPH. Your car might not show much damage, but your body might.
  5. A soft-tissue injury is permanent, as scar tissue can form in your muscles leaving them less flexible and prone to re-injury in the future if you don’t receive treatment.
  6. If you act quickly you preserve your legal rights. An attorney listed things to do after an accident and #1 on his list was: Get prompt medical treatment; otherwise you may get benefits denied or limited.
  7. In most cases treatment can cost you nothing out of pocket, even if it’s your fault or you don’t have any health insurance.
  8. If you are not injured you can sleep better at night knowing you had an extensive exam and x-rays and found out everything was fine.
  9. Statistics show the longer you wait for treatment after you are injured, the longer it takes to heal and requires more treatments.
  10. If you are injured your injuries usually will not heal on their own.
