Injuries After an Accident

Determining your injury after an accident can be a difficult task, even for an experienced doctor. Many times, medical professionals are busy and overwhelmed with work and your injuries may be overlooked. 

If you suffer from an injury, you should always seek a second opinion. Doctors are human and they are capable of making mistakes. Whether your injury is minor or major, it is always better to seek a second opinion. 

Monitoring and treating your injuries are important to maintain your health and to be adequately compensated by the insurance company. Trust your body and your instincts! If you are in pain, do not let a medical provider dissuade you from seeking additional treatment. 

During an accident, the impact of the collision may cause your head to violently whip forward. This is called whiplash, which is a soft tissue injury. Whiplash can cause painful swelling and mobility issues, but an x-ray will fail to show these symptoms. Therefore, you need to seek a second opinion in order to obtain additional diagnostic testing to determine the extent of your injuries. 

When you are involved in an accident, you should seek immediate treatment to be examined for your injuries. Seeking timely and adequate medical care is very important to you case. Some injuries/conditions may not appear for several days after the accident and that is why it is important to always follow-up with your medical provider. 

If you are involved in an accident or suffer an injury, make sure you seek immediate medical treatment. Next, contact the Spencer Law Group and let us assist you in obtaining the compensation you deserve!
