Auto Accident Victims

Frequently, people fail to seek treatment following a car accident forfeiting rights to care when they realize the accident has changed their life.

Don't be Shamed Out of Your Legal Rights

Stereotypes of whiplash claims should not keep you from seeking care when you need it.  In fact, 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. See Whiplash Video

Understand that by the time truly serious complications ensue, without immediate treatment, the damage from the injury may become permanent. Long term medical studies on car crashes have shown that years after whiplash victims settle their insurance claims, roughly 50% of them show signs of continued symptoms from injuries that occurred years earlier. If you have been in a moving accident of any kind, don't assume that you escaped injury if you are not currently in pain. That may be your body's ancient form of protection; that you may escape what has caused you injury.  The law provides that you be checked out following an auto accident, so please come by our office as soon as possible and we will make sure you are OK.
