Q What Is a MIST Injury After a Car Accident?
After a car accident, the insurance companies label injuries that don’t involve broken bones “minor impact soft tissue” (MIST) injuries.
These injuries include whiplash and back or neck pain, which can sometimes become chronic problems that affect you for the rest of your life.
Note the word “minor” in MIST. According to many insurance companies, MIST injuries are not a big deal, even when they do happen.
But serious back pain can cause you to miss work and lose time with your family. You may require medical treatment, physical therapy, or medication to help relieve the pain. The bills can add up, and the lost wages make paying for all of it very difficult.
