Hurt in an Accident

Someone hit you… You are hurt in an accident… your car is damaged, pieces of your car are everywhere, and you are completely shocked.

You are not alone. We can help!

First, make sure everyone in your car is somewhere safe. Assess your injuries and call 911.

From here, know that you are not alone, and we can help you get through this.

It is easy to let the chaos and details overwhelm you (repairs, other drivers, insurance companies, etc…) but do not forget to pay attention to your own injuries. Remember pain after a car accident indicates a problem and could be dangerous. Pain indicates a problem, and without the right care, that problem can get worse, not better.

The pain you feel after a car accident may come from numerous injuries.

  • Force is one of the most common causes of injuries. The force between a car striking another vehicle or object can cause significant damage, including spine injury and neck injuries.
  • The back-and-forth movement of the car can cause a stretching of the ligaments and tendons in this area, causing significant damage.
Hurt in an Accident

The accident may cause symptoms such as:

  • Headaches you cannot explain
  • Back pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Neck pain and stiffness
  • Confusion
  • Deep bruising
  • Broken bones
  • Internal bleeding or blood clots

These injuries may require medical attention and should not be put off for long.

Not only is immediate medical attention critical to your recovery, it also ensures that you have documentation of what has occurred right away. Get seen by a doctor or chiropractor to receive an evaluation for back and neck injuries as well as for internal injuries (even if you are not experiencing any pain). Report any pain that shows up in the next weeks or months after the accident and have your doctor evaluate if the pain is due to the accident. Delayed pain is very common in back injuries; including, but not limited to, those of the upper back and lower back pain that result in limited mobility, neck pain, headaches, and confusion.

Remember that you are not alone. While you are recovering from your physical injuries, we will…

  • File all the correct paperwork and ensure you do not miss out on anything important
  • Gather any necessary paperwork, collect evidence, if possible, will come up with a strong argument to use in court
  • Help negotiate a settlement, if that may be the best route for you to go in
  • Help figure out how much compensation you deserve and will file for that (current medical damages as well as any future damages you may have)

We are here to make the process as easy and successful as possible.
