What are the most common injuries after a car accident?

Generalized neck, back and chest pain and swelling are fairly common. Sometimes patients suffer temporary dizziness or confusion or concussion. Many serious injuries are related to trauma affecting the chest area. Furthermore, blunt force trauma from car accidents can cause broken ribs and collapsed lungs.

What is the Minor Injury Guideline (MIG)?

The Minor Injury Guideline (MIG) was introduced in 2010 and its objectives are to:

  1. Speed access to rehabilitation for persons who sustain minor injuries in auto accidents;
  2. Improve utilization of health care resources;
  3. Provide certainty around cost and payment for insurers and regulated health professionals; and
  4. Be more inclusive in providing immediate access to treatment without insurer approval for those persons with minor injuries as defined in the SABS and set out in Part 2 of the MIG.

The MIG sets out the goods and services that will be paid for by the insurer without insurer approval if provided to an insured person who has sustained a minor injury. It is focused on the application of a functional restoration approach, in addition to the provision of interventions to reduce or manage pain or disability.
