If you are involved in a Fresno car accident and start to notice your neck aching the next day or within a few days, then you should take note. This is not something to brush off and assume it will get better on its own. Many people assume that it is just a type of soreness that will go away on its own. Can a neck injury be nothing more than sore muscles? Yes – but it can also be much more serious.
It is important to take this neck pain seriously for two reasons. First, the sooner you have the injury looked at and treated, the more likely it will be to heal. Second, if you do not have it looked at, then you can have a hard time recovering the compensation you are owed. Keep reading to learn the three things we recommend you do if you notice a sore neck after an accident, and then contact The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker at 800-333-0000 for a free legal consultation.
- Tell Your Insurance Company About the Injury
- Get Medical Care
- Talk to a Personal Injury Attorney
Insurance adjusters, whether your insurance company or that of the at-fault party, are going to ask you if you have suffered an injury. You should tell them about your neck ache. Even if you think it is no big deal, do not tell them that. Simply tell them that your neck hurts and that you will get medical care.
If you tell them that it’s not a big deal, and it turns out to be more serious than you thought, then they can and will use your previous statements in an attempt to prove that your injury is not worth the compensation you are seeking.
Your health is essential. Once again, getting medical care is important for two reasons. One, it will help ensure your injury does not cause damage that can be prevented. Second, it will create a medical report that shows how serious your injuries are and how they impact your life. The more severe your injuries are, the more compensation you should receive. Ensure this is the case by getting medical care right away.
Any time you are injured due to another party acting negligently, a personal injury attorney might be able to help you recover compensation for your damages. At The Law Offices of Larry H.
