Fender Bender Season

car accidentIt’s that time of the year again.  The hazards of winter driving increase with fewer hours of daylight and the sun being situated lower on the horizon.   If you find yourself exchanging insurance company information with another driver, remember…

1. Minor traffic accidents are notorious for hurting passengers far more than what is suggested by the sometimes superficial damage to the car.  Make sure every passenger gets to our office for a thorough examination.  Prompt action can often reduce scar tissue and speed the recovery process.

2.  If your injuries necessitate a visit to the emergency room and there are no obvious broken bones, be prepared to receive a clean bill of health and a prescription.  The muscle relaxers will make you loopy but won’t do a thing for spinal misalignments and the underlying soft tissue damage.  Stop by our practice for a more thorough exam.
