Car accidents are by and large the most common cause of personal injuries in the United States, though because Florida is a “no-fault state”, each person’s own insurance will pay for damages and injuries suffered regardless of who was responsible for the accident. This is often a very complicated process that MedAmerica in Deerfield Beach, Florida can help you navigate.

Personal injuries as a result of car accidents
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 36,750 people died in car accidents in the United States in 2018. In nearly all of those accidents, those involved who did not suffer fatal injuries were seriously injured and required long term medical care. But even minor car accidents can leave the parties involved with life-altering injuries. Even relatively minor fender benders and rear-end collisions can result in whiplash which can lead to everything from pain and stiffness of the neck to chronic migraines and loss of memory.
Unlike most car accident injuries, whiplash symptoms aren’t always noticeable right away. It can often take days or weeks before the first signs of whiplash are noticed, and that it why it’s imperative to always seek medical attention no matter how insignificant the auto accident seemed. At MedAmerica Chiropractic and Physical Therapy in Deerfield Beach, we are trained in the proper diagnosis and treatment of whiplash and other car accident related injuries.
