Thousands of drivers in Florida experience car accident injuries each year, ranging from minor to severe. While the insurance companies don’t seem to think that a TMJ injury is a severe injury, our Sarasota injury attorneys feel otherwise.
TMJ is a jaw condition that can be very painful, making it difficult for a victim to eat or speak. With TMJ, the bones, muscles, ligaments and discs of the jaw are affected, and this causes the jaw to lock.
Unfortunately, some victims of auto accidents may not know they have TMJ for weeks or months after a crash. For this reason, it is critical not to settle with the insurance company too quickly following a Sarasota car accident. If you do, you may not be able to get compensated for any future medical expenses.
While waiting to settle your auto insurance claim, it is wise to make sure you fully understand your diagnosis and treatment. Insurance companies will still try to lowball or deny your claim when TMJ injuries are involved.
How a Sarasota Accident Attorney Can Help
Even though insurance companies will attempt to deny a TMJ accident injury claim, a skilled Sarasota personal injury lawyer can provide evidence showing a TMJ injury is a very real injury that can occur in auto accidents.
