(upbeat music) – [Narrator] Two minutes of
information, entertainment, and events in Atlanta and beyond. This is the Daily Two. I’m Shannon Walshe, joining
me is Jacquie Palisi, family safety advocate from
Montlick and Associates. Jacquie, nearly a million people
suffer soft tissue injuries each year, and I understand
that more than 75% of the time the pain lasts longer than six months. Yet despite this, most people
do not consider these injuries to be serious, and many delay getting proper medical treatment. – That is right Shannon, people tend to under-estimate
neck and back injuries. Even though over time they can involve a lot of physical pain,
expensive medical treatments and prolonged periods of disability. A common problem is that some
people may not experience all of the symptoms for
days, weeks or even months after the accident. – Define soft tissue
injury for us Jacquie. – This is a medical term
that is mostly associated with auto accidents, and
caused by hyper-extension of the ligaments, tendons or
muscles of the neck or back. And these can be painful and serious. – And your attorney’s
see a lot of these cases? – Yes, another problem is
that the insurance companies will try to downplay or
dismiss soft tissue injuries, and offered injured people
much lower settlements than they deserve. – So there are multiple
reasons to get medical help after an accident. – Yes, getting proper
treatment typically leads to faster recovery. And having complete records of
all diagnosis and treatments will help you prove the
full extent of your injuries when filing an insurance claim. – Viewers remember, you can reach Montlick & Associates 24/7, by simply calling 1-800-LAW-NEED, or by going to Montlick.com
