What Should I Do After Being Injured in a Car Accident?

Injuries from a car accident can be obvious immediately after impact or develop years later. If your back or neck were injured in a car crash, you might not feel the pain or discomfort immediately. As a victim, you are entitled to pursue benefits for your injuries from the at-fault driver.

As soon as you leave the accident scene, you should know how to hold a negligent driver responsible for your injuries and the resulting medical bills. The accident attorneys of the Coye Law Firm want to help you get back to normal following a car accident. We urge you to seek medical treatment for your injuries, even if you think that your pain can be cured by a little bit of rest. 

Common Back and Neck Car Accident Injuries 

There are many ways that your neck and back can be injured in an accident. You can be hurt by extreme forces during impact in any of the following accident scenarios:

The back and neck are some of the most vital parts of the body to protect. Typical injuries of the back and neck include:

  • Broken bones
  • Whiplash
  • Slipped or bulging discs
  • Muscle spasms
  • Muscle strains and sprains
  • Paralysis

If you recieved any of these injuries and more due to a negligent driver, you may be able to hold them responsible. 

How to Recover from Car Accident Injuries

Back and neck injuries from a car accident can range from mild to life-threatening. See a doctor after the collision to make sure that you get all of the proper treatment needed to recover.

These injuries can also often keep people from working and earning an income for themselves and their families. If this happens, consult an experienced disability attorney to help you apply for Social Security disability benefits or compensation from another disability insurance policy.
