Common Medical Mistakes

Common Medical Mistakes:

  • Assuming you are not injured because your pain is mild
  • Assuming you aren’t hurt because your car wasn’t damaged
  • Believing the ER doctor when he or she says “it’s just a strain, you’ll be better in a couple of days…”
  • Treating with non-auto accident specialists like your general family medical doctor, HMO doctor, etc. Accident injuries are not the same.

For years, the personal injury field has used 5 mph as a consensus figure for injuries. Brault, et al has shown that the 5 mph figure was indeed double the actual figure. Others have shown that slow speed collisions actually cause more injury than collisions with more vehicle damage.

Most people understand that whiplash is a neck injury from trauma such as a car crash accident, but there are many facts about whiplash that might surprise you. Many people are unaware that you can be injured in a slow speed car crash, especially when there is no vehicle damage. And did you know that your gender makes a huge difference in whether or not you’re going to be injured in a car accident?
