Each year, a large number of workers sustain neck and back injuries at their place of employment. The United States Department of Labor approximates that one of every five workplace injuries involve a worker’s neck or back. In addition, their reports reveal there are certain professions wherein workers are at a higher risk of suffering injury. Some of these occupations include agricultural workers, carpenters, commercial fishermen, dairy farmers, electricians, forestry workers, laborers, loggers, masons, miners, quarry workers, roofers, welders, pipe fitters, and plumbers.

COMMON CAUSES OF NECK & BACK INJURIES

5 Signs To Look For In Young Children After An Accident

Nothing is more important to a parent than the well-being of their child. After an automobile accident, parents must be especially attentive to a child that is too young to articulate if they’ve been injured.

If you ever find yourself in this situation, certain signs may reveal whether your child has been injured. Paying special attention to these signs will help you determine whether your child needs immediate medical attention.

(Please note: If you’ve been in a car accident with your child in the car, even if you think everything is fine, make an appointment with your child’s pediatrician. At times, injuries cannot be seen, and it is always better to be extra-cautious to assure your child’s health and wellness.)

Did You Know: What is Medical Payments Coverage and Do I Need It? #AutoInsurance #FAQ

Medical Payments coverage (or Med-Pay) is no-fault insurance that covers your medical costs after you are hurt in an automobile accident. For drivers with health insurance, this coverage is useful to cover any out-of-pocket expenses you may incur, such as deductibles or co-pays, as well as any medical treatment that is not covered by your health insurance policy, such as chiropractic or acupuncture. For drivers with no health insurance, Medical Payments coverage is even more crucial as it may be the only way to get the care and treatment you need following an accident. Again, this coverage will cover any medical expenses caused as a result of an automobile accident, regardless of who was at fault.

Most automobile insurance carriers will offer Medical Payments coverage ranging between $1,000 and $25,000. For drivers with health insurance, $5000-$10,000 is usually sufficient to cover those health care costs not otherwise covered by health insurance. For drivers without health insurance, we recommend Medical Payments coverage up to the maximum you can afford, and your insurer will offer.

In the event you are injured by another driver, one ancillary benefit of Medical Payments coverage is that it can sometimes work to increase your personal injury recovery by decreasing the amount you have to pay back to your health care providers and other insurers following the resolution of your personal injury claim.
If you do not know whether you have Medical Payments coverage, or you do not know your Medical Payments coverage limits, we strongly suggest you contact your insurance broker/agent/carrier immediately to request this information and possibly increase your Medical Payments coverage accordingly.
