Neck injuries are some of the commonest occurrences in all car accidents, particularly when the car’s occupants have been rear ended by a distracted driver or a careless motorist who was driving far too close without allowing sufficient braking time. Neck pain is often concealed and does not always emerge until some time after the accident. The most serious neck injuries can result in the lower parts of the body losing their sense of feeling and, at the very worse, paralysis could set in.

You must act quickly if you have been involved in a car accident and get a full medical examination to ensure that any serious neck injuries are detected and the correct medical treatment administered. Try to recall the events leading up to the accident, particularly if you know you were not at fault.

Claiming Compensation Is Your Legal Right

All accidents that involve any type of injury usually mean that you can file a claim for damages against the person who caused the accident, as long as you were not at fault. However, witness reports, police reports and medical reports are all required to ensure that the person at fault is made accountable. If you are seriously injured then you will have to depend on a relative to piece the events together so that when you hire a car accident attorney it will be far easier to find and confirm the evidence to back up a compensation claim. A team of Injury Attorneys in Philadelphia will tend to your case

It doesn’t matter what type of injuries you have sustained, you are legally entitled to file a compensation claim against the negligent driver. You will need a competent personal injury lawyer who has had substantial experience handling car accident victims and in particular those who have neck injuries.

Rear End Collisions Often Cause Whiplash

Whiplash commonly occurs in rear end collisions, but it is a condition that may take several days and even weeks to emerge.  Once the effects are felt, pain can be long lasting and may make returning to work a painful experience. A successful compensation claim filed by a car accident attorney means that your financial expenses will be covered while you fully recover from your injuries yourself. You must not underestimate your expenses and you must ensure that the person at fault sufficiently compensates you.

Make Sure You Are Fully Compensated

So often with car accident victims, the insurer of the at-fault driver will approach you with an offer of compensation. Don’t be foolhardy and accept token gestures. Rarely does an offer such as this adequately compensate you for the financial hardship you are likely to endure throughout the injury and recovery time. You will need a thorough medical examination where the physician will determine your treatment requirements from now and into the future. These expenses will be included in the compensation claim so that you will not be out of pocket. Loss of income will be determined by your car accident attorney as well. Negligence by a person has to be identified and that person made accountable, otherwise car accident victims will be financially burdened throughout the rest of their life through no fault of their own.
