This is an all to common occurrence these days and which may result in injuries often initially missed, or misdiagnosed. Headaches, neck or shoulder pain may appear following a car accident (or other accident or falls). Long experience and many studies show that such injuries may affect the neck, jaw and jaw joints (temporomandibular joints) too. Any whiplash type injury will cause strain on the jaws and consequently the possibility of damage. A DEW can determine with probability whether or not such injuries have been sustained during such an accident, or may have been pre-existing, potentially worsened by the accident. A report from an honest, unbiased DEW is clearly of benefit to all seeking facts. A knowledgeable lawyer recognizes the value of a DEW to uncover such issues.
