The problem with injuries resulting from a car accident is that they often don’t present themselves until days or weeks after the accident has occurred. Whiplash, one of the most common forms of injury after relatively minor accidents, may not be immediately apparent. Even if you don’t feel pain after an accident, you should consider seeing a chiropractor to assess the possible extent of your injuries and begin the healing process as soon as possible. Then, you may want to seek the advice of a New Jersey personal injury attorney to find out if you may be able to collect damages.
Whiplash Or Worse
Whiplash is the biggest risk following a minor accident, which is described as a wide range of injuries caused by sudden extension of the neck. Treatment depends on the severity of the injury. Generally, whiplash can be rehabilitated with motion exercises, although sometimes pain medications are prescribed. More severe injuries may require the use of a neck brace (cervical collar) for several weeks, and if you or somebody you love has a more serious injury, you want to reach out to a spinal cord injury lawyer right away.
Symptoms to Look Out For
Symptoms of whiplash include:
neck or head pain
If you suffer from any of these symptoms after an accident, you’ll want to see a doctor or chiropractor as soon as possible. You’ll also want to speak with a New Jersey personal injury attorney or spinal cord injury lawyers who specialize in representing car accident victims.
If you’re suffering from whiplash (or any sort of injury), treatment may be expensive and time-consuming. You have the right to speak with a New Jersey personal injury attorney.
