Our children are our most prized possessions and it is our duty as a society to protect them.

"My Accident Was 2 Years Ago... Could that Cause My Neck Pain Today? ⠀
The short answer is yes. But let’s look at how the neck is injured in whiplash and why a trauma from years earlier can produce symptoms today.⠀
Even in more moderate motor vehicle collisions with substantial car damage, symptoms rarely come on the day of the injury. When symptoms do occur immediately, this is a sign that the injury to the neck was more severe.⠀
In most accidents, we initially feel a bit shaken up and shocked more than anything else. When the vehicle has substantial damage, this can completely occupy our thoughts. How are we going to drive to work the next day? We may not think to see a doctor immediately because a more pressing concern is to get the car into the shop and arrange for a rental.⠀
If a pain in the neck begins, we take a few pain pills (such as ibuprofen) and the pain may seem much better, even cured. But whiplash is much less straightforward than a simple tight muscle from over exertion.⠀
Whiplash causes the neck bones to displace from the stretched ligaments and disks. Over months, the bones gradually creep further into the direction of the damaged ligaments. Since gravity is working all of the time, the tendency is for the misalignments to get worse as the days press on. ⠀
Our initial “little problem” has now become much worse because scar tissue has formed to hold the neck in this abnormal position. This may cause some joints to become less mobile and other joints to become hypermobile in an effort to compensate. Over time, this can place stress on or irritate the nerves and spinal cord, producing the pain that may eventually drive you to seek chiropractic care. ⠀

Personal Injury Protection Coverage (PIP) is insurance coverage for injuries sustained by you or other persons covered by your policy. It covers what insurance companies call “reasonable and customary” medical services for injuries you sustain in an accident, up to the limit of your PIP coverage. The standard policy provides for up to $250,000 PIP coverage and provides for underinsured and uninsured motorist coverage. Under New Jersey’s Standard policy, your PIP coverage is $250,000, although you can *but never should* opt for lesser coverage for a reduction in premium. The savings are *not* substantial. Under the Basic Policy, PIP coverage is $15,000, but you can *and always should* opt for more coverage for an additional premium. Click in the #linkinbio for more info.
Expect your PIP coverage to include things like:
• Medical Services and Surgeries
• Hospital Expenses
• Rehabilitation Treatment
• Diagnostic Procedures
• Ambulatory Services
Depending on the extent of your injuries, PIP coverage may include lost wages, or benefits to help cover the costs of getting certain household tasks done. If someone dies from their injuries, surviving dependents may also receive benefits.
Don’t wait until you’re in an accident to find out. If you have questions about your auto insurance, give us a call. We’re happy to help.
What to Do If You Are In a Car Accident
• If you are involved in an accident, immediately take traffic safety measures and turn on your hazard lights. If safe to do so, move your vehicle off the roadway. Place reflective triangles on the edge of the roadway in the direction of oncoming vehicles to warn other motorists that there’s a stopped vehicle ahead. • Check on all involved in the accident, if you are able. Call 911, or ask someone else to do so for you, if someone needs emergency medical attention.
• Call the police. Even if it is a minor accident, this can help you get a record of the details of the accident, even if no one appears injured or the damage appears to be minor. • Exchange information with the other driver or drivers. Write down the contact information (phone and email), license plate numbers, make, model and insurance information of all involved vehicles. Record the names, contact information and addresses of any witnesses.
• Take pictures of the accident scene and the involved vehicles, if it’s safe to do so. • Create a detailed description of the accident. Include the date, time, location, weather and road conditions. • Report your claim to your insurance company. #graniteinsurance#caraccident#caraccidents#carcrash#carwreck#autoaccident#autoaccidents#carinsurance#autoinsurance
