    Just because you are hurt and can still run, does not mean you are "milking the system".

    As a qi gong instructor, I am sure that you are aware that the mind and body are affected by so many variables that it is impossible to draw a direct correlation - car accident = no running.

    Outside of an acute injury, I would not pursue "pain and suffering" because that also includes emotional pain and suffering -which can not be eradicated by financial gain. And, since the emotions are tied to the body as well, pursuing financial gain for pain and suffering, will also unnecessarily prolong physical suffering as well.

    I am not sure that made any sense.

    Made sense to me :)

    But what I was referring to is that if I were to claim to be injured and in pain yet continue to run, I could get into legal trouble.

    But the moral dilemma is the thing that would do the most harm. And as you say, that harm would manifest itself physically in some way difficult to predict.

    I was suggesting you see a doctor, not a lawyer. But if you don't think you need a doctor, then perhaps you don't need one. :nurse:

    After I was rear ended, I went to the doctor to get an all clear before running and lifting. Since things were good, I ate the co-pay. Here's to working out. We are a durable lot. Glad you are OK. (Rear ended at 40mph - no brakes.)

    My mom was rear ended like that at a high rate of speed by a drunk driver. The drunk was slapped on the wrist and let go.
