A car crash or other motor vehicle accident that may on the surface seem little more than a fender bender can often result in injury. Because the pain one feels in a case of whiplash is delayed, victims of a rear-ender are sometimes accused of trumping up imaginary aches and pains to bleed more money out of the party responsible.
Attorney Geoffrey Nwosu understands the specific nature of soft tissue injuries and the intensity of the pain that can follow. You can count on our law firm to help you receive the compensation that you not only deserve but need.
Not all injuries involve major surgery or catastrophic / life threatening results. When an accident causes your muscles and tendons to be pulled or stretched, then your soft tissue injuries need care also. San Jose injury lawyer Geoffrey Nwosu understands that you may have to live with pain and the resulting suffering for a number of years or even for the rest of your life. Soft tissue and whiplash injuries can cause a number of health conditions such as:
- Back spasms and strains
- Bulging discs
- Chronic back and neck pain
- Immediately contact your doctor if you begin experiencing pain. You may not have noticed the pain at the time of the accident. It may have appeared hours later or even the two days later. The sooner you report the injury to your doctor, the better your chances may be to connect your injury to the accident.
When the Pain Is Delayed
People who sustain whiplash or soft tissue injuries in car accidents may not even be aware at first that they have sustained an injury. The pain is often delayed, but it does come. Symptoms may include headache, sleeplessness, and pain radiating into the shoulders, lower back or even into the legs. Often times, these types of injuries do not show up on MRIs and X-rays” and delete the sentence about chiropractic procedures.
- Do not accept low-ball insurance company offers, especially if your doctor tells you that you have to live with the pain. You may have a right to seek compensation for pain and suffering, chiropractor, and other medical bills.
