Failure to diagnose AOMSI results is failure to accurately, thoroughly and honestly describe the patient's injuries to the claim adjusters and attorneys, who will use this fact in the patient chart as the basis for the personal-injury settlement. A jury needs to understand this injury to decide how much to award the patient in a trial verdict.
The loss of this diagnosis leads to a loss of the valuation of the case.

Given the high amount of mis-diagnosis of this injury, whenever it is suspect that there is a greater than 50% reasonable medical probability that the motor vehicle accident could damage any of the 7 ligaments of the spine and with the knowledge that it has been missed 35% to 55% of the time, doctors and attorneys are ordering the diagnostic radiographic mensuration analysis (DRMA) procedure on accident victims.
