Denver, CO, November 09, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- The first major financial driver is the injury diagnosis. And the most common injury diagnosis for minor impact soft tissue spinal injury is Alteration of Motion Segment Integrity or AOMSI.
AOMSI is the pathological restrictive movement of spinal vertebra or the anatomical failure of the ligamentous connective tissue.
The diagnosis is made by ordering a computerized mensuration analysis which
measures altered spinal movement.
The second financial driver is impairment ratings. Impairment ratings are based on the American Medical Association Guides to Impairment.
The diagnosis of AOMSI can give up to a 25% impairment rating.
The third financial driver is the loss of enjoyment of lifetime activities. These are
restricted and painful movements of activities of daily living.
The fourth financial driver is the restriction of duties under duress. The duties under duress are limited or restricted activities relative to the work environment.
The fifth financial driver is the determination of maximum medical improvement and the need for future care.
The need for future care can have a significant financial award considering the patients' age and the medical care necessary to the duration of the patient's life.
All of these topics are explained in detail in a new video Dr. Luck has produced to help personal injury attorneys with their soft tissue spinal injury claims.
