Often times, injuries incurred during an auto accident cannot be seen externally, such as soft tissue injuries (injuries to muscles, ligaments and discs) and can heal with scar tissue which can ache years later – yet the damage to the spine can lead to recurring headaches, neck pain, stiffness, chronic muscle tension and spasms, lower back pain, spinal disc degeneration, inflamed arthritis, sore and tight inflexible muscles, greater chance of repeat injury and aid in poor posture.

Florida No-Fault Law

Florida No-Fault Law provides coverage of your medical bills under your auto policy regardless of who is at fault. Even if you don’t think you’re injured, it is advised to be checked out since many injuries don’t exhibit symptoms until weeks or months later. If you fail to seek an evaluation and/or treatment within 14 days, you forfeit ANY and ALL rights to the coverage that is allowed to you. If we determine that you have no injuries, then you will at least have the peace of mind that you should not suffer any long term effects as a result of the accident.  Many people fail to get evaluated within 14 days time frame and later realize they are hurt.  It’s better to be safe than sorry when it comes to auto accident injuries.

What Is Whiplash?
Whiplash is the result of a hard jerk or forceful movement of the head and neck. It is a common injury, often associated with automobile accidents. If a vehicle comes to an abrupt stop, the head will continue to move forward at the same speed the vehicle was traveling before the accident. When the head can physically go no further, it is jerked back with extreme force. This can have a damaging impact on the muscles, tendons, and ligaments of the neck and shoulders. This type of injury can cause extreme pain whenever the head or neck is moved in a particular direction.

Pay attention to more than just your car, you could have a whiplash injury even if your car has little or no damage.  Whiplash injuries can occur in accidents where the vehicle is moving as little as 5mph, many times with very little or no vehicle damage. There can be a greater injury to the occupant if there is less damage to the car.  Instead of the car being damaged and absorbing the force of the other vehicle, you do.
