SOFT TISSUE INJURIES CAUSED BY MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENTS
Everyday, millions of Canadians get behind the wheel of a motor vehicle without really thinking about the perils of driving. Motor vehicle accidents are a daily occurrence, and in fact have become more common than ever with distracted driving becoming so prevalent. Some of these accidents are often minor in nature, but others can be extremely serious.
SOFT TISSUE INJURIES
Soft tissue injuries can cause a great deal of pain and discomfort and affect an injured victim in a very serious way. These injuries include soreness, bruising, stiffness, sprains and strains. Sprains include damage to a ligament from overextension of a joint. Strains are usually caused from the overuse of a muscle or tendon.
WHAT IS WHIPLASH
Accidents often create a significant impact, whether from being in a rear-end collision or some other type. Whiplash occurs when the force exerted during an accident forces your head and neck to move in a jolt-like fashion, usually causing sharp neck pain and back problems. Whiplash often seems minor at first, but overtime if the pain doesn’t subside, can become a serious injury. With that said, if you are suffering from whiplash related injuries you should seek medical attention immediately, regardless of how minor you feel your injury may be.
SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION AND TREATMENT AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE
No matter what, getting the proper medical care immediately following an accident, and days after, should be your first priority. Certain injuries are time sensitive, and detecting them at an early stage and treating them quickly can be germane to recovery. Medical attention is critical to diagnosing and treating pain and if you do not seek it immediately, the insurance company may deny that your pain is related to the accident and might draw an inference it is from some other strenuous activity in your life or from a pre-existing injury.
BEGIN BUILDING YOUR CASE
Your personal injury claim, and trail of documentation, begins right at the scene of the accident. Determination of who is at fault has a significant impact on your lawsuit and could bar your claim altogether if you are considered a hundred percent at fault. It is important that you don’t let the other party bully you into not contacting the police. A police report often becomes a key part of evidence and developing a proper claim.
