Personal Injury Q & A

What is a personal injury?

A personal injury occurs due to someone else’s accidental or intentional negligence. It can be physical or mental, such as a car accident, a slip-and-fall at work, a faulty product, or assault and battery. 

The term personal injury is a legal phrase that means someone else is responsible for the injury that is causing your suffering. 

What are some types of personal injuries?

Some of the most common types of personal injuries include:

  • Whiplash
  • Pinched nerve
  • Herniated disc
  • Fractures
  • Shoulder pain
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Hip pain
  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Headaches
  • Concussion
  • Contusion

Frequently personal injuries cause a variety of sprains and strains that can affect your movement and ultimately your quality of life. 

Visit Back to Wellness Medical Center for a thorough examination immediately after your personal injury so they can determine the extent of the problem and develop a plan to address it.

One of the first calls you should make after you’ve sustained a personal injury is to Back to Wellness Medical Center. They conduct a comprehensive physical exam to determine the extent of damage to your spine and joints.
