Summary of Insurance Settlements Using DMX to Prove Ligamentous Injuries

Digital Motion X-ray (DMX) provides visual, objective proof of painful, progressive, and permanent ligamentous injuries. DMX can dramatically increase settlement amounts for people who have sustained ligamentous injuries that MRI, CT, and static x-rays cannot detect. Here are real cases that Digital Motion X-Ray (DMX) helped prove:
