Personal Injuries Q & A

What are personal injuries?

Personal injuries often happen when you least expect it. They might result from a car accident, motorcycle accident, fall, or work-related accident. Personal injuries range in severity from mild to severe and can be short-lived or long-lasting. If you have a personal injury that’s painful or doesn’t subside with at-home care, see the experts at L.A. Urgent Care & Occupational Medicine for relief.

What are common personal injuries?

Common personal injuries you or your child might encounter include:

  • Fractures
  • Joint dislocation
  • Sprains or strains
  • Muscle, tendon, or ligament tears
  • Head trauma
  • Ruptured discs
  • Joint pain or stiffness
  • Decreased range of motion
  • Back, neck, or shoulder pain
  • Knee or hip pain
  • Tendinitis
  • Open wounds

Signs of a personal injury can include swelling, stiffness, bruising, pain, and decreased range of motion or mobility.

Even if you don’t experience symptoms of an injury immediately after an accident, getting evaluated by specialists at L.A. Urgent Care & Occupational Medicine can detect personal injuries so you can get compensated when necessary.
