“The 5 Necessary Steps to Ensure You Are Covered After an Auto Accident”
Some injuries are seen and some injuries are not. A common misconception is that passengers of a car get hurt in proportion to damage to the car. However, cars were designed to absorb the force of the impact so it does not hurt the driver. In many instances, low impact collisions (even under 10mph) that do not cause the bumper to crumple can transfer more force to the passengers, increasing the frequency and magnitude of injury and even death. No accident should be taken lightly and all passengers should be examined thoroughly. Emergency evaluation from a medical provider is sometimes necessary in bad collisions, but an
upper cervical chiropractor is essential to your full recovery after an accident. Even medical X-rays do not show the complete picture. Medical evaluations are frequently focused on ruling
out major damage and major risk to you health such as fractures, internal bleeding, and disc damage.
