Personal Injury Q&A

What is a personal injury?

A personal injury occurs when you sustain physical harm because of another person’s carelessness. As a result, the other person bears the responsibility for your injury, whether they made a mistake or were negligent.

What personal injuries commonly occur?

Slip-and-fall and motor vehicle accidents frequently cause personal injuries. But you can sustain injuries in many circumstances, ranging from accidents on the job or at the local mall to walking down an icy sidewalk in your neighborhood.

Personal injury accidents commonly cause:

  • Whiplash
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Shoulder injuries and dislocations
  • Concussions and traumatic brain injuries
  • Repetitive use injuries (carpal tunnel syndrome)
  • Leg injuries (crush accidents and fractures)
  • Arm injuries (sprains, strains, and fractures due to falls)
  • Lacerations, puncture wounds, and burns

 

Psychological traumas like anxiety, insomnia, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) may also qualify as personal injury. 

When should I schedule a personal injury medical exam?

 

You should see the team at Las Vegas Spine & Pain Center shortly after you sustain a personal injury. The most important reason for a prompt evaluation is to get relief from your pain and other symptoms. Your provider also finds any problems that may get worse without treatment, such as a pinched nerve or concussion.

 

You also need an immediate medical exam so your provider can verify that your injury was directly related to the accident. You need this documentation in the event you file an insurance claim or lawsuit.

What happens during a personal injury appointment?

Your provider completes physical and neurological exams and diagnostic tests as needed. In addition to diagnosing the cause of your symptoms, they verify your injuries were caused by your accident. Then they create a customized treatment plan.

As your personal injury physician, they also complete the reports you need for personal injury claims. For example, they may need to determine your impairment rating and evaluate your need for rehabilitation.

How is a personal injury treated?

Las Vegas Spine & Pain Center recommends treatments to ease your pain and restore optimal function and wellness. They may suggest physical therapy together with interventional pain management techniques, such as:

  • Joint injections
  • Peripheral nerve block
  • Epidural steroid injections
  • Spinal cord stimulation
  • Stellate ganglion block
  • Lumbar sympathetic block
  • Trigger point injections
