Minimal property damage does not mean minimal injuries
I was speaking with a Seattle chiropractor, Dr. Raymond Sue (http://www.univchiro.com/), a few weeks ago and he was kind enough to share the attached article with me. The article reviews a study that was conducted by Arthur Croft and Michael Freeman.freeman-article. Although it can be quite technical, the message is pretty clear. The amount of property damage to a vehicle is an unreliable predictor of the severity of the injuries which the passengers have suffered.
If you’ve been in an accident that has not caused much damage to your vehicle, don’t listen to an insurance adjuster or anyone else who tells you that you don’t have a claim. If you think you’ve been injured, go get examined by a doctor or chiropractor and consult an attorney. Better to be safe than sorry.
