Johnston, RI Car Accident Attorney Case: A Rear-End Collision Results in Severe Neck, Back, Hip, and Right Shoulder Pain

Our client, a 63-year-old teacher, was driving down Route 295 South in the Johnston, Rhode Island. Our client eventually slowed down, however, the careless driver failed to follow suit. Thus, the careless driver struck the back of our client’s vehicle.

After the accident, our client did what nearly every rear-end collision victim should do. She quickly sought medical treatment! On the day of the accident, she informed doctors that she was experiencing neck, shoulder, and hip pain.

That same day, doctors referred our client to physical therapy treatment and took X-rays of her injuries. Doctors were then able to confirm her severely injured neck. They even confirmed that she slipped a disc in her neck as well.

However, this was not the end of our client’s experience. Instead, our client’s injuries worsened with time.

Exacerbated Pain after Client’s Rear-End Collision

After our client’s rear-end collision, her injuries quickly worsened. She returned for medical attention after enduring persistent and worsened neck and shoulder pain for two months. Not only that, but her original right hip pain traveled all the way down her leg, making it impossible for her to sleep on the right side of her body.

During the course of her months long physical therapy treatments, our client repeatedly reported severe pain levels. She received multiple injections to her right shoulder for pain management purposes, all while experiencing limited movement in her neck and shoulders. Needless to say, our client’s main priority after her fender bender was to heal as much as possible.

Should I Hire an Attorney After Sustaining Injuries in a Car Accident?
