Frequent car accident injuries and your insurance

| Feb 20, 2018 | Motor Vehicle Accidents |

Suffering an injury after being involved in a car accident is more common than you might think. Many people, when involved in an accident, are not sure how to go about making claims for their medical costs.

It is important, therefore, that all drivers and passengers understand what they are entitled to before an accident occurs. There are many types of accidents that can happen and they all have the potential to be covered by an insurance company.

Injuries to the head and back

Some of the most common types of injuries that occur in a car accident involve damage to the head or to the back. When a car brakes or hits an object at a high speed, the sheer force involved can lead to spinal damage, concussions or even comas. This type of injury may require a great deal of medical treatment and hospital stay as a result.

Injuries to the neck and chest

Most people are aware of the phenomenon of whiplash. This is an injury that occurs when the neck moves suddenly and with force. This can commonly occur even in relatively minor accidents. However it can be serious and should be treated properly.

If you have been injured in a car accident, it is vital that you get medical help immediately before following up by contacting your insurance company. It’s important that you research your rights and possibly seek legal guidance so that you understand the medical coverage you are entitled to in your car accident, based on the designation of fault and the type of insurance that you have.
