Many people believe that lawyers are only to be called upon when high speed collisions take place partly because they think that only these types of accidents result in high medical bills. However, soft-tissue injuries can result in painful and sometimes even permanent injury and they need not to occur at high speeds. In fact, it’s been demonstrated that even a 5 mph impact can result in a soft-tissue injury.
Soft-tissue injuries involve bruises, muscle strains, joint and ligament strains, damage to the fascia (connecting tissue), on the lower end but they could involve whiplash, herniated discs, and even brain injury in extreme cases.
As a result, as soon as you’re involved in an accident you should check for symptoms. Keep in mind that these symptoms at times do not appear right away and it’s best to seek medical attention. However, after a slow-speed accident you may notice stiffness, neck or back pain, pain in the shoulders, headaches and blurry vision, these are all signs that a soft-tissue injury may have occurred. In this cases it is also best to seek medical attention.
An experienced attorney can refer you or your loved ones involved in a car accident to a qualified medical professional, including chiropractors, that can make a medical report and provide the treatment that you need on a lien. Providing care on a lien means that the doctor does not get paid until the case is settled. Needless to say, injuries from that medical report are used as leverage to get you a higher and fairer compensation for your injuries, pain and suffering.
