If you have been involved in a car accident you have the right to receive treatment for your injuries. All passengers, regardless of fault, are covered for treatment. Even if the driver is at fault, they may have coverage through their Medpay benefits.
Too often people don't seek treatment following a car accident because they don't feel hurt. Because symptoms of an injury can take weeks or months to manifest, it is easy to be fooled into thinking that you are not as injured as you really are. By far, the most common injury to the neck is a whiplash injury. Whiplash is caused by a sudden movement of the head, either backward, forward, or sideways, that results in damage to the supporting muscles, ligaments and other connective tissues in the neck and upper back. This same mechanism of injury can affect the middle and lower back regions as well.
Unfortunately, by the time more serious complications develop, some of the damage from the injury may have become permanent. Numerous studies have shown that years after whiplash victims settle their insurance claims, roughly half of them state that they still suffer with symptoms from their injuries. Seeking treatment after an accident is important. If you have been in a motor vehicle or any other kind of accident, don't assume that you escaped injury if you are not currently in pain.
