    Unfortunately, car accidents are a far too common occurrence.  They happen every day in Nevada. Some accidents are minor and everyone may walk away with relatively minor injuries and very little damage to their cars.  Other accidents can be fatal with cars that are seriously damaged or totaled.

    Even if you’ve been in a minor automobile accident, it is important to seek medical attention as soon as possible.  You may not appear to be injured at first, but you could still have soft tissue injuries or internal injuries that take time to develop.  If you don’t see a medical professional right away, you could make your initial injury worse.

    Always seek medical treatment after a car accident.

    Who Will Pay for My Medical Treatment?

    Your insurance company will want the insurance company of the responsible driver to pay your medical bills.  Some insurance companies will pay the bills and then seek reimbursement, but others will wait for the other company to pay.  Don’t let the cost of treatment or procedural issues deter you from seeking the medical care that you need or affect your health care decisions.

    If you were in an accident, seek immediate treatment so that you can get the best care possible.  After you have gotten checked out by a medical professional, it’s time to consult with a Personal Injury Law Firm to help you get your bills paid and the compensation that you deserve.

    Common Invisible Car Crash Injuries

    Some car accident injuries do not show up immediately and may be considered “invisible.”  An example of this is a soft tissue injury, which is damage to your body’s connective tissue.  A common type of injury that results from a car crash is whiplash.

    Whiplash is a soft tissue injury that may take some time to appear.  It results from your head suddenly jerking forward, backward, or sideways at the time of the car crash.  Whiplash usually results from a rear impact while in a stationary position.

    Whiplash injury symptoms may include: neck pain and stiffness, headache, shoulder pain and stiffness, dizziness, fatigue, arm pain, jaw pain, back pain, and ringing in the ears.
