Collision Injury Rehabilitation

Delayed pain after a car accident is an injury symptom that begins 24 to 48 hours after the incident occurred. Sometimes it can take even longer. Delayed pain can mask the symptoms of a severe injury. Ask us for a FREE consult.

IF YOU ARE HURT, DON'T WAIT!

Automobility incidents are very serious and can be life threatening, with many injuries being prevalent to the back, neck and head. Injuries such as whiplash, back pain, and concussions can be very dangerous. It is important to seek a health care provider as soon as possible to screen for short term or long term injuries. Although these injuries can be very serious and inhibit you from daily activity, with the correct treatments and rehabilitation, one can bounce back to their daily activities within no time.

DELAYED SORENESS

Delayed pain or soreness can occur after a car accident is an injury symptom that begins 24 to 48 hours after the incident occurred. Sometimes it can take even longer. Delayed pain can mask the symptoms of a severe injury, so you should see a doctor immediately after a car crash or as soon as pain develops.

Also if you are taking any pain medication or antiinflammatories this is an indication that you should report for an assesment from our qualified team of health practitioners.

OUR GOALS FOR YOU

No one should suffer pain or loss of movement as a result of an auto collision, your insurance provides for you to have your car fixed. But also provides AB accident benefits to allow your injuries to be treated.  So even though you might not feel any pain immediately after your accident, that doesn't always mean you weren't injured.

Have Questions?

Should I call the police after a car accident?

Call the police if anyone is injured, if the total damage to all the vehicles involved appears to be more than $2,000, or you suspect that any of the other drivers involved are guilty of a Criminal Code offence (such as driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol).

Follow the instructions given to you by the emergency operator. Police will arrive as soon as possible. Do not try to move anyone injured in the accident — you may aggravate their injuries.

When should I report to the collision centre?

If no one is injured and total damage to all the vehicles involved appears to be less than $2,000, call a Collision Reporting Centre within 24 hours.

  • No one is hurt in the accident
  • Damage to the vehicle is less than $2000

These centres are police facilities created to assist motorists in reporting motor vehicle accidents. At the reporting centre you will complete a police report, and damage to the vehicle will be photographed. Visit: www.accsupport.com[New Window] or call (416) 745-3301 to locate the Collision Reporting Centre nearest to you.

Tips to Remember when in a Car Accident

  • As difficult as it may seem, it is important that you remain calm.
  • Do not argue with other drivers and passengers. Save your story for the police.
  • Do not voluntarily assume liability or take responsibility, sign statements regarding fault, or promise to pay for damage at the scene of the accident.
  • Be watchful for unauthorized tow truck operators. To learn more about tow truck scams, visit FSCO’s Tips For Avoiding Tow Truck and Storage Scams.

How Always to be Prepared

Road accidents are always unexpected. Be prepared by keeping the following inside your vehicle at all times:

  • Pen and paper
  • FSRA’s accident worksheet [PDF]. (Print and keep a copy in your glove compartment. It will help you record valuable information on-scene.)
  • Emergency road flares, warning triangles or cones
  • Fire extinguisher (A-B-C Type)
  • Flashlight and extra batteries
  • Bottled water
  • Booster cables
  • Tire repair kit and pump
  • Small tool kit
  • Towel
  • Pair of work gloves
  • Non-perishable food
  • Hand wipes
  • Thermal blanket

How to Avoid Tow Truck Scams

Be informed. If you require the services of a tow truck driver, know your rights. Here are some tips: 
  • Some large municipalities (such as Brampton, Hamilton, Mississauga, Toronto and Windsor) licence tow trucks and require drivers to post a municipal licence number on their trucks. If you’re in such a community, check if the tow truck has a municipal licence number on its side before you use its services.
  • Look to see if the tow truck is affiliated with a reputable company such as an automotive roadside assistance group or automobile association.
  • Listen for obvious clues. Does the driver recommend a particular repair facility without being asked? If so, this might be an indication that a referral fee arrangement exists. In some municipalities, making such a recommendation may be illegal.
  • Carefully read everything the tow truck driver asks you to sign.
  • Ask that your vehicle be taken to a secure location where an adjuster or appraiser from your insurance company can have access to it. Some municipalities require that your vehicle be taken to a Collision Reporting Centre or police station before it goes anywhere else.
  • You have the option to choose where to have your vehicle towed to for repairs. Some insurance companies use preferred repair shops where they have an agreement that guarantees your vehicle will be repaired to the highest possible standards. For more information, contact your insurance company.
