Your Damages and Injuries Might Cost You More Than You Think!

The situation described at the beginning of this blog post illustrates how oftentimes there’s more than meets the eye in minor car accident cases. Motor vehicle damage, scrapes, bumps, dents, etc., tend to be extremely costly. Having an attorney on your side can help make sure the at-fault party covers those expenses.

Additionally, you may feel your injuries, hours, days, and even weeks later after a minor car accident. Delayed-onset injuries should not be ignored! Many of our clients experience delayed injury symptoms like headaches, back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, and numbness, to name a few. These symptoms are often delayed after a minor car accident due to victims’ adrenaline response or even shock.

As a best practice, we recommend that you seek a medical evaluation after any car accident. If symptoms of delayed-onset injuries appear, seek medical attention and inform doctors about your car accident. Not only will this help you make a full recovery more quickly, but it will help your minor car accident attorney show the value of your case. A skilled and local personal injury attorney may be able to help you recover medical costs you incur.
