After a car accident, many people claim to feel fine – however, a diagnostic can be life saving because many initial injuries don’t show pain until many days later. Diagnostics are necessary to identify, and treat accordingly. This includes x-rays, CT scans, and MRIs.
-An X-ray can help rule out things such as broken bones, dislocated joints, bone fragments, and some other internal injuries. After any personal injury, this could make a grand difference in your case.
-Computed tomography scan or CT scan is also a type of x-ray but can be used to create images of bones, internal organs, soft tissue and blood vessels.
-An MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) is a scan using radio waves and magnetic field to create images of internal tissues and organs without using radiation.
A proper diagnostic can also help build up your case, so that your compensation is in accordance to your injuries.
