Often major cases have zero of little insurance. Beware of huge emergency care costs that later eat all insurance leaving little funds for DC care. Also, suggest to your non PI patients to buy very inexpensive med pay for their family’s protection. [Email email@example.com for free brochures with plastic stand]
Poor Vehicle Choice:
We would like to see anyone who buys a car at least get one weighing over 4000 pounds. Multiple studies show small lighter cars dramatically increase injuries an accident.
Poor vehicle maintenance:
Bargain basement tires, bad breaks, mal functioning turn lights, can hurt your patient’s case – or proves that defendant was grossly negligent.
Improperly Adjusted Head Restraints:
Few drivers take the time to properly adjust this device. If too low it can amplify the injury. When your patient buys a new car, a nice courtesy you can provide is to go outside and see if his head restraint is effective.
Again multiple studies show that drivers who smoke are more dangerous drivers and much slower to heal. Yet another reason to quit.
