Car Accident Injuries
Being in a car accident and suffering an injury can be a terrifying and overwhelming experience. Many people who survive automobile accidents must deal with both physical and emotional damages following their accident and treating these injuries can be a difficult process. If you have suffered any injuries due to an accident, contact Doctores y Mas to help you deal with these injuries as soon as possible.
What are the Typical Injuries from an Auto Accident?
In the days and weeks following an auto accident, you may experience any of the following symptoms:
- Stiffness in your neck or back
- Neck pain

What should you do after an accident?
Do not wait until you feel pain to seek treatment, the best way to deal with auto accident injuries is to get evaluated by the right doctor early. If left untreated, these injuries can go on to cause other additional serious physical problems. In fact you may not even think you have been injured after a car accident, only to experience pain, discomfort, headaches or other symptoms several weeks or months after the fact. Ignoring a potential injury can lead to chronic pain, which is why you should always visit a doctor who understands auto injury causes and treatments as soon as possible. At Doctores Y Mas we can identify any musculoskeletal injuries such as sprains, strains or herniated discs caused by the accident and design a treatment plan specifically for each patient.
Another reason not to wait is that most auto insurance companies will only acknowledge auto injuries reported within a certain time frame after an accident. Therefore if you are not evaluated and diagnosed as soon as possible following the accident the insurance may not accept your claim.
