Personal Injury Q&A

What is personal injury?

Personal injury is a legal term used when you sustain any damage to your body. Automobile accidents are the top cause of personal injuries. Other common causes include being struck by an object or a slip-and-fall accident, often leading to a fall on an outstretched hand (FOOSH) or back injury.

It’s essential to seek immediate and professional care after personal injury so that your pain specialist can identify problems and start treatment to relieve pain, promote healing, and prevent complications.

Seeking prompt medical attention is also crucial if you file an insurance claim. If you sue for personal injury, you’ll need absolute proof that your injury directly causes your physical problem. It’s hard to prove cause and effect when too much time goes by between your accident and a medical exam, increasing the chance that your claim will be denied.

What personal injuries often occur during an automobile accident?

The most common health problems caused by personal injury, such as an automobile accident, include:

  • Spine injuries (fractured vertebrae, whiplash)
  • Blunt force trauma (broken ribs)
  • Crush injuries (fractured hips, legs, and feet)
  • Head impact (concussion or traumatic brain injury)

Sometimes, personal injuries are severe enough to require immediate medical care. However, even when you walk away from an accident with few or minor problems, you should schedule a thorough examination at the Center for Spine, Joint, and Neuromuscular Rehabilitation.
