We have been helping accident injury cases for many years now here in our Vineland New Jersey office. We understand the process extremely well and it is my personal belief that if you have been involved in an accident, even if it isn’t your fault, you are probably better off with an accident attorney to help you through the process. Unfortunately, the process can be complex, insurance companies rarely want to pay out full compensations that should be owed to you, and also so you keep any out of pocket expenses to a minimum. Let’s take a look at a few of these factors in more detail.
Hi guys, came across this simple video and thought I would share with everyone to show how much force is in an accident, even one as slow as this one. We hear so often that because an accident was low speed, there would be no injury. Unfortunately, that’s not the case as this video shows. This speed is very low but look at the force of the impact on the dummy and girl. So it goes to show that just because an accident might be low impact, the damage can still be severe.
As you can imagine, I have seen countless Vineland auto accident victims over the years in my practice. Naturally some accidents have been worse than others and the degree of treatment of course varies. But be aware, even if you’ve been involved in a low speed collision (even 10mph), the chances are you have some soft tissue injury or whiplash. That could worsen and become chronic in several months time. The best time to treat any injury is as soon as possible.
Why You Should Get Checked Out After an Auto Accident
Why you should get checked out after an auto accident is quite key to your future health. Auto accidents are very common place and here in Vineland, NJ is no different. However it is incredible the number of people who have an accident, and just because it’s minor they don’t get checked out properly. Sure, they may visit the ER and when they’re told no broken bones, they assume all is good. But that is not necessarily true. When a person is involved in an accident, one of the most common results is a whiplash injury. This is the sudden movement forward and back of the head and neck. It causes small tears in muscles and if not treated properly, these tears do not heal properly, and in the long term, cause more pain and problems.
Can I Get Whiplash If I was Hit From The Side?
What is Side Collision Whiplash?
Whiplash injuries result from collisions which forcefully and suddenly throw the occupant of the vehicle forward (from flexion) and backward (extension) causing a whip-like form of injury. This is quite different from side collisions or T-bone accidents which have a unique nature depending on the place which the target vehicle was struck (front, middle or rear), and more importantly the small space between the vehicle’s occupant and the location of the strike which causes more injuries.
…Reveals Chiropractic Effective For Whiplash, Neck and Back Pain.
Even for car accident injuries, more now than ever, patients are getting educated online as to what treatment may be best for them. As a result of this new website, patients are learning what many doctors don’t tell them about “soft tissue injuries.”
This new website includes easy to read information on “Chronic Pain From Whiplash Injury”, “Neck Injuries And The Acceleration of Neck Arthritis”, “Pre-Accident Arthritis of the Neck”, “Healing Time For Injured Soft Tissues”, “Problems With Pain Medicines”, “The Benefits Of Chiropractic”, “Understanding Whiplash Injury”, and much more.
“To understand whiplash injury and treatment, it is most important to know the answers to these three questions: What tissues are injured in a motor vehicle collision? What tissues are the primary sources for chronic spinal pain? What tissues are primarily affected by the chiropractic adjustment? Astonishingly, the answer to all three questions is the same: The tissues of the facet joints and the tissues of the disc joints.”… “Consequently, it is inevitable that some whiplash-injured patients will develop chronic pain and that chiropractic is often the best management choice for these patients.”… says Dr. Dan Murphy, DC, DABCO, the website’s expert contributor.
