Automobile Accident Related Injuries

Your head can move up to 4 times the speed of impact in a split second. So that little 10 mph fender bender may have snapped your neck back and forth at 40 mph ripping and tearing ligaments, muscles, nerves, and other ‘soft tissues.’ Often, with no visible injury until arthritis cripples you 7 or eight years down the road.

Whiplash Issues

Whiplash, a soft tissue injury to the neck, is also called neck sprain or neck strain. It is characterized by a collection of symptoms that occur following damage to the neck, usually because of sudden extension and flexion. The disorder commonly occurs as the result of an automobile accident and may include injury to intervertebral joints, discs, and ligaments, cervical muscles, and nerve roots. Symptoms such as neck pain may be present directly after the injury or may be delayed for several days. In addition to neck pain, other symptoms may include neck stiffness, injuries to the muscles and ligaments (myofascial injuries), headache, dizziness, abnormal sensations such as burning or prickling (paresthesias), or shoulder or back pain. In addition, some people experience cognitive, somatic, or psychological conditions such as memory loss, concentration impairment, nervousness/irritability, sleep disturbances, fatigue, or depression.

What to do after an accident

At the Scene

  • Stop your car and turn off the ignition
  • Stay Calm-Panicking can make it worse
  • Check for injuries, but do not move an injured person.
  • Move as far off the roadway as possible, but stay at the scene of the accident. Turn on your hazard lights or set flares.
  • Call 911 and report the accident.
  • Do not admit fault or liability or discuss the accident with anyone but the investigating police officer and your claim representative
  • Exchange information with the other drivers. Collect, witness, scene, vehicle, insurance, and police information.

After you Leave the Scene

  • Call YOUR insurance company
  • Contact your local DMV to see if you are required to file an accident report.
  • If there are any claims made against you, or you would like to file a claim, talk to an attorney.
  • See a doctor right away if you have been injured in any way.Keep a record of all expenses. KEEP ALL RECEIPTS
