Top Ten Reasons Why You Should Be Examined After a Car Crash

  1. You may be injured and not know it.
  2. The full extent of any injuries, such as whiplash, may not show any symptoms for hours, days or even weeks.
  3. Medical professionals all agree that the first 72 hours after a collision are the most critical for assessment and a time when starting treatment can be the most effective.
  4. The majority of injuries from auto collisions occur at low to medium speeds…10-25 mph.
  5. Your vehicle might not show extensive damage, but that doesn’t mean that bodily injuries did not occur.
  6. Soft -tissue injuries can be permanent if not initially treated or treated properly. This scar tissue formation, if left untreated, make people less flexible and prone to re- injury in the future.
  7. Getting prompt evaluations and treatment preserves your legal rights. Waiting for long periods after a collision may result in getting benefits limited or even denied.
  8. All Colorado drivers, unless you specifically opted out of medical payment through your agent, have $5000.00 to use towards treatment for any injuries associated with the collision REGARDLESS of fault.
  9. Statistics show the longer you wait for treatment after you have been injured, the longer it takes to heal and usually requires more treatments.
  10. Most injuries respond well to proper treatments and do not take a long time for proper healing.
