Why won’t the insurance company believe that my TMJ injury occurred in my Florida auto accident?
Insurance companies want to save as much money as they can. This means that they will attempt to deny or diminish a claim in which they don’t feel there is evidence to support. They may argue that a TMJ injury could have occurred prior to your Sarasota car accident, or that it happened from the way your clinch your teeth together.
They will try to claim there is no evidence to support that your jaw injury was a result of the auto accident. Many insurance adjusters do not know enough about the link between whiplash injuries and TMJ injuries, though. So insurance companies attempt to deny or discredit claims partially to get out of paying for your injuries, and the other part is sheer negligence.
TMJ often develops as whiplash develops following a crash. This type of injury can even occur in slow moving impacts. If you believe you have TMJ from the accident, it is important to do the following things:
Don’t sign anything from the insurance company
- Talk with a skilled Sarasota injury lawyer as soon as possible
- See your primary care doctor, dentist, and an ear, nose, and throat doctor to get the right diagnosis for your TMJ injury
