Injured in a Springfield Car Accident. What Do I Do?

Personal Injury Attorney Answers: What is the most important thing to do after my injury?

According to Jesse Tanksley, car accident injury attorney at Mann, Wyatt & Rice Injury Attorneys in Springfield, Missouri, those who have been in an injury-causing car accident should seek medical care as soon as possible.

In addition to the no-doubt frightening and perhaps even life-changing experience of being in a St. Louis car accident, common car accident injuries include the below, and some drivers suffer injuries that do not manifest themselves until days or weeks after the accident.

  • Whiplash
  • 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)

Following 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.”
