If your car has been hit by another vehicle depending on the severity of the impact, you may experience whiplash. Whiplash occurs when your body is violently thrust forward then snaps back. The symptoms of whiplash are not always apparent and may not manifest for several days. If emergency personnel offer their assistance, do not refuse their offer. You may be seriously injured and not realize it. Symptoms may be delayed because the human body releases adrenaline and cortisone after a serious impact which creates a numbing effect for a period of time. However, when these hormones leave the body, you may experience a number of severe health conditions, including tinnitus, back pain, dizziness, jaw and neck pain. Doctors generally order CAT or MRI scans to evaluate the extent of an injury. Complete all recommended tests because your health should be your first priority.
When mounting medical bills and expenses are adding up, you may want to consider a personal injury claim due to another’s negligence especially if you are unable to work due to pain. It is up to you to pursue financial reimbursement that you are entitled to you according to the law. Tim Upton at Upton Law Firm will assist you in pursuing compensation for your injury. He is an experienced personal injury attorney whose expertise is dealing with insurance companies as well as winning cases for his clients in court.
