A: When you suffer a neck injury and experience chronic pain, you may have a disc injury that is best detected by an MRI scan. Your primary doctor, or even a chiropractor, can order an MRI to determine the extent of your injuries. If you are filing a Florida personal injury claim with the help of a personal injury lawyer you will find the results of an MRI can be a critical part of your claim evidence.
After you have the MRI, it will be read by a professional technician or doctor. The scan will be conducted at an outpatient imaging center, a hospital, or even in some doctors’ offices. You will want to request a copy of the MRI as well as the report for your personal injury lawyer to use in your Florida personal injury claim.
If your MRI shows signs of a serious neck injury such as tears in the neck ligaments, herniated discs between the neck vertebra or bulging spinal discs, this can be excellent evidence for your Florida personal injury claim. The more medical evidence you have of your neck injury the better as it will help your personal injury lawyer support your claim.
