If You are Injured in an Auto Accident
An auto accident can be life changing. As a victim of an auto accident myself, I can relate to what you may be going through. Accidents and injuries vary in severity, ranging from the very mild to severe, depending upon many different factors.
If you are hurt, you can always contact our office for a consultation. Pain may or may not appear right away, but it usually reaches its maximum discomfort anywhere from 3 to 10 days after an accident and can linger for years if its cause is not corrected. Regardless of severity, you should always get yourself checked out.
The amount of damage to the vehicle in an auto accident does not depict the amount of injury sustained by the victim. Studies indicate that injuries can occur at impact speeds of 5 mph where there is little or even no damage to the car. Today’s cars absorb much of the impact in the bumper, but transmit this energy from impact to the person’s head, neck, and spine.
|The most common symptoms of a whiplash injury are pain or stiffness in the neck and shoulder, recurring headaches, numbness in the arms and fingers, irritability, back pain, and dizziness. Few people realize that an untreated neck or back injury from a car accident is likely to develop into degeneration of the joints in later years.
