Car Accidents – Workers Compensation – Insurance claims involving an injury
If you are involved in a work or motor vehicle accident, no matter how small, make sure you are assessed by a medical professional
You may not feel any pain but sometimes long term damage can be done from even a minor collision or work related incident. The adrenaline from the stress can sometimes delay pain by up to seven days. So if you are not in pain immediately, do not assume everything is ok and seek medical help.
Remember that any personal injuries that occur after a motor vehicle accident are usually protected by Compulsory Third Party insurance (CTP). If you require treatment, it is generally funded by your CTP insurer and you will not be charged.
Any injuries which are sustained at work are protected by Workers Compensation and any reasonable and necessary treatment is 100% covered.
Some of the more common injuries that we have treated in these cases are:
- Sprains and strains of spinal muscles
- Ligament damage or taring
- Neck strain (whiplash)
- Upper or lower back pain
- Tingling sensations in areas of the body, such as the arms, shoulder, or legs
