FAQ: What is the Most Important Thing to do After My Car Accident Injury?
Have you recently been in a Kansas, Missouri or Oklahoma car accident? Being involved in a car accident is a frightening experience that can drastically change your life within seconds. Common car accident injuries include the below, although many drivers suffer injuries that may not manifest themselves until days or weeks after the accident:
- Neck (cervical spine) injuries
- Back (thoracic and lumbar spine) injuries
- Orthopedic/joint injuries
- Concussion/head/brain trauma
- Spinal cord injuries
- Knee damage
- Chronic fatigue symptoms (as a result of shock and injury)
According to Jesse Tanksley, car accident injury attorney at Mann, Wyatt & Rice Injury Attorneys, if you’ve been in an injury-causing car accident, you should seek medical care as soon as possible. Many states require that all drivers with the exception of motorcycle drivers carry Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance, which should ensure you are able to see a health care provider right away.
After or in conjunction with seeking medical care, it is also best to contact a reputable car accident injury attorney like Tanksley. The status or outcome of your medical care will determine whether or not a car accident injury case should be pursued.
“You need a medical diagnosis before you can determine the best course of legal action,” said Tanksley. “Medical injuries determine the potential value of a case and whether you should settle the case or pursue it further.”
