If you have been involved in a car accident, your injuries need to be taken very seriously. Because symptoms of some injuries, such as whiplash, can take weeks or months to manifest, it is easy to believe that you are not as injured as you really are.
Too often people don’t seek treatment following a car accident because they don’t feel hurt. The best personal injury lawyers will tell you that they always recommend that car accident victims seek an immediate medical evaluation. By far, the most common injury to the neck is a whiplash injury. Whiplash is caused by a sudden movement of the head, either backward, forward, or sideways, that results in the damage to the supporting muscles, ligaments and other connective tissues in the neck and upper back.
Unfortunately, by the time more serious complications develop, some of the damage from the injury may have become permanent. Numerous studies have shown that years after whiplash victims settle their insurance claims, roughly half of them state that they still suffer with symptoms from their injuries. If you have been in a motor vehicle or any other kind of accident, don’t assume that you escaped injury if you are not currently in pain. Contact us today!
