If you have received a "minor" injury during a crash in North Richland Hills or anywhere in Texas, you already know that even minor injuries can cause major pain. Though you may need medical treatment and physical therapy for months after the crash, the insurance company will likely want to give you little, if anything for the injuries they have decided are minor.
What is considered a minor injury?
Injuries that are not considered life threatening are designated as "minor" injuries. Injuries that are commonly called minor include:
- Back sprain or strain
- Cuts or lacerations
- Dislocated shoulder
- Fractured bone (arm, leg and rib fractures are common)
- Mild concussion
The Problem With Minor Injuries
While any of the above injuries can cause serious pain and require extensive medical attention, the insurance company will rush to discount your pain and suffering if the injuries are only minor. However, many of these injuries can cause you serious pain, even limit your earning capacity. For example, if you are employed as a cashier, and you fracture your hand in a crash, you may continue to feel pain the hand while you work, possibly stopping you from performing work related tasks in the way you used to, even causing you to lose your job.
