Whiplash injuries are the result of the neck motions during an impact from a car accident.

It is specifically the acceleration and the deceleration that occurs during a very short period of 100ms. The violent jerking of the neck in such a short time period overcomes the bodies ability to absorb energy, and the consequence is damaged tissue. Damaged tissue can be widespread, and this is the major concern for early treatment and diagnosis of car accident related injuries.

Effective Treatment when you need it
Waiting weeks or months, or even years is the worst thing you could do to facilitate the healing process of automobile injuries. Early intervention is paramount to getting the best results. Don’t make the mistake that your pains will go away, because more often than not, your pain will stay the same or get worse. It is key to do anything at all possible to restore motion of the spine. Improving the structure will improve the function of the area. There are many treatment options for car accident victims, but it is also important to go to a car accident doctor that has specific training. A general practitioner is just that, not a specialist. Look for Denver car accident doctors that have additional training in documenting and treating whiplash injuries.

Whiplash injuries are the result of the neck motions during an impact from a car accident.

This can be tricky for the car accident victim. Your first step is to call your own auto insurance company and ask if your policy has med-pay on it. By default, your auto insurance has $5,000 to cover medical expenses related to your auto injuries. Some insurance companies will suggest you waive this coverage, but you have to do this in writing when you first acquire your auto insurance policy. Some auto insurance carriers will offer as much as $100,000 in med pay benefits. Check with your auto insurance carrier first to see if you have med-pay.

If you don’t have med pay on your policy, and the car accident was caused by the other driver, then you must speak with the other insurance company. Hopefully, the person that caused that accident has insurance. If they don’t have insurance, then hopefully your policy has uninsured motorist coverage. If they do have insurance, they will pay for your care up to a reasonable limit. Essentially you have to find a provider that will treat you on a lien, such as our clinic. The other persons insurance will only pay after treatment is complete. In this scenario, you may need a Denver personal injury attorney to help represent you to get your medical bills paid in full.
