Early in the pandemic, with state-at-home orders, mandatory closures, and work-from-home opportunities, the state and local authorities noted considerably less traffic, but more speeders, resulting in numerous accidents with injuries. Now, as South Florida counties reopened, and employees return to work, car accident numbers are on the rise. 

The rate of injuries, as well as fatalities, per miles driven is increasing. According to the National Safety Council, fatalities per mile driven has increased to 14 percent during the pandemic. Accidents with injuries to drivers, passengers, pedestrians, and bicyclists are also on the rise. Here’s what you need to do when you are injured in an accident during the Coronavirus pandemic.

Seek Medical Attention

Following any car accident, no matter how minor it may seem, seeking medical attention from a chiropractor should be a top priority. Often, especially in a minor vehicle accident, victims don’t see any apparent injuries or feel any pain. After an accident, a medical exam can be crucial to your health and wellness as many injuries don’t manifest until days or even weeks afterward. In addition, if you were injured in an accident through no fault of your own, the record of your examination and treatment by a medical professional may be needed to ensure your injuries and other damages are covered.

If you have any questions or are ready to have a customized care plan designed especially for you, contact one of our six convenient South Florida locations today. 

Car Accidents Often Cause Injuries 

Like vehicle and personal property damages, injuries are common in car crashes. Nearly all car accidents, no matter how minor they appear, can cause serious injuries. Using seat belts can help, but in accidents involving a speeding car, major injuries that require medical attention often occur. 

Common injuries following vehicle crashes include (but not limited to):

Visit a Chiropractor After An Accident

Even if you don’t believe you were injured in your accident, it is important to seek medical attention from a chiropractor. Injuries are not always immediately apparent and often arise later in the form of pain. If you are in an accident and your injuries are visible or evident – fractures, lacerations, head injuries – you should be taken immediately to the emergency room for care and treatment. 

If you experience pain following your accident, you should visit your chiropractor who specializes in treating injuries like whiplash, soft tissue injuries, and other musculoskeletal issues which often manifest following a car crash. Chiropractic treatment includes an evaluation and diagnosis, followed by a treatment plan tailored to address and reduce your pain, while returning you to full health. Chiropractors utilize treatments and techniques – adjustments, massage, physical therapy, and others – which naturally realign your body and so, alleviate your pain and discomfort.
