Discover What Most Insurance Companies Don’t Want You To Know About Hidden Car Accident Injuries And How To Protect Your Rights Before It’s Too Late!
Every day, thousands of Americans are involved in auto accidents and they aren’t lucky enough to have this information in front of them. As a result, they either receive inappropriate care for their injuries or never get their injury diagnosed properly, and often settle their case too soon.
Most insurance adjusters know all about the kind of injuries people experience in an accident. They know sometimes you don’t feel injured right away and that is why they try to settle as quickly as possible while your medical bills are low or non-existant. They’d rather see you in pain after you settle with you picking up the tab for your own treatment.
This Can Happen Even If It’s Your Own Insurance Company You’re Dealing With!
Make no mistake, insurance is a business like any other, and the less they spend on appropriate care, the more money they make their shareholders.
Even if you were involved in a minor fender bender, studies have proven you could suffer from a sever injury that is not easily noticeable.
You can be severely injured and only feel a little or no pain at all after the accident. Your doctor can easily miss this and mistake your pain for something completely different. This is when insurance companies try to settle with you. Do not make this mistake! Until a recognized and reputable doctor who has experience with low impact, soft tissue injuries says you are 100% okay, don’t make the decision to settle too soon!
What MOST Doctors Do Not Know About Hidden Injuries CAN Financially and Physically Hurt You!
See, after any accident, it is advisable to visit the emergency room to make sure you do not suffer from any life-threatening injuries like broken bones, a punctured lung, or internal bleeding. This is what emergency doctors specialize in.
But the problem is that as long as there’s no immediate threat to your life, the emergency room physician is likely to send you on your way with pain medication to mask the pain.
And here is the problem with only taking pain medication after your accident….Soft tissues like muscles, ligaments, discs, nerves, and blood vessels need oxygen. They also need to function and move properly. When you only take pain relief and/or anti-inflammatory medication, scar tissue and adhesions can form, limiting the proper motion needed for healthy nerve and blood flow.
Scar tissue is also a substandard tissue that can turn into its own source of pain- causing a number of chronic pains, symptoms and syndromes!
The Problem Is That Soft Tissue Injuries Are NOT Always Visible on X-Rays
This is why most doctors do not have the training to detect soft tissue injuries….they over-rely on vital signs, x-rays, and the pain described by the patient!
Since many doctors can’t detect your injury, they make the wrong diagnosis about what is wrong with you. So any treatments you get based on this diagnosis will do practically noting for you!
The treatment of choice for medical doctors, is to use drugs to cover up your symptoms (like pain) so you don’t feel injured anymore. This form of treatment only gives you the illusion that you are okay, when really you can be seriously injured and not know it.
So, If You Are Experiencing Any Of These Symptoms, You May Be Suffering From A Hidden Or Soft Tissue Injury…
- Muscle Stiffness
- Neck Pain
- Numbness and Tingling
- Mid-Back Pain
- Low Back Pain
- Difficulty Sleeping
- Memory Loss
- Difficulty Concentrating
OR worse yet, you may be feeling none of these right now because your injury has not started producing these symptoms yet.
The Shocking Truth About Using Pain Relievers, Physical Therapy, and Surgery To Get Rid Of YOUR Pain!
Let’s assume you are experiencing some neck pain. How will your doctor attempt to treat you? Well, rather than go after the cause of the problem he or she can’t find, he/she is going to attempt to cover up your pain with over-the-counter (OTC) drugs and other, more powerful pain relievers.
These drugs only work by sabotaging your body’s ability to register pain. They do absolutely nothing to fix the problem causing the pain. So, while these drugs are sweeping the dirt under the rug, you’re giving the illusion you are actually okay. This is dangerous.
1. Accident victims on pain medications are more likely to settle their case. The insurance companies use this to their advantage so don’t make hasty decisions while on pain relief medication. It may come back to haunt you later.
2. Usually under pain relief medication, you are more likely to worsen your injury! Your body’s way of telling you that you are making things worse is pain and, if you do not feel the pain, you may be aggravating your injury and not even know it! Ever have a sprained ankle? What happens if you keep walking on it rather than sit it out for a few days? It hurts more an more. And why? Because you’re making it worse!
The same is true for these hidden injuries in your neck and back. Yes, you read that correctly! Your doctor who means well and wants you pain-free, may be hurting you by giving you seemingly harmless drugs!
That’s not to mention the side effects of using these drugs. You see, the bodily functions these drugs are blocking to hide your pain also have other functions in the body. Depending on the drug, you may run into serious kidney, stomach, or liver problems as as result of popping these drugs just to get through a day of work.
The next step doctors will rely on once their initial treatments fail is to refer you to a physical therapist. The only problem here is no one has checked your bodies spinal alignment. This means whatever therapy you undergo is designed to treat the problem your doctor thinks you have, when really it may be something totally different.
So, after all of this, it is no coincidence most people with “hidden” injuries are still in pain and may even feel worse!
At this point, you are either sent back to therapy to try another treatment that odds are won’t work. Or, he/she may recommend you to see a surgeon about your problem.
Oftentimes surgeries, especially in the neck and back, will only result in short period of pain relief, at best. More than half of all back surgeries will never get you out of complete pain.
Plus, there is the added risk of infection and anesthesia problems, not to mention other side effects that are not too uncommon when it comes to cutting a body open…like missed time off work and reduced living for weeks or months at a time.
