Whiplash Injuries

Alpharetta Car Accident Lawyer

Auto accidents can cause a variety of different spinal cord injuries. Discs can slip, soft tissue can be damaged, muscles sprained, and bones injured. In rear-end accidents especially, you can be flung forward at high speeds, then thrown back by your seatbelt. In a matter of a few seconds, your neck has been violently snapped back and forth. This often results in whiplash, which is both painful and potentially serious. Not only does it inflict suffering, but it can damage your wallet too. When you face costly medical treatment and therapy, you should not have to pay for someone else's negligence. If a reckless driver is behind your whiplash injury, you should contact our trustworthy attorneys at Kalka & Bear, LLC. Our car accident lawyers can do everything in their power to help you secure the compensation you deserve.

After an accident, you may be dazed and scared, but you may not notice any injuries. You should still go see your doctor. Symptoms can take 24 hours to appear, even for severe injuries such as internal bleeding or spinal cord injury. Whiplash is one such condition which takes time to make itself known. You should seek medical help immediately if you feel your arms weaken, tingle, or go numb. If it is painful to move your head, you have dizzy spells, or you have trouble seeing clearly, seek medical attention immediately. Other symptoms can include headaches, a stiff neck, and extreme tiredness.

Obtain Compensation with a Personal Injury Claim

When you sustain injuries such as whiplash, not only are you faced with a prolonged period of pain, but you could have to pay for expensive prescription medication, and in serious cases, physical therapy. Especially in instances when your job demands physical labor, you may have to take time off work because of your injuries. As medical bills increase, you may be without a salary. If you are suffering from another driver's irresponsibility, you should not have to face these difficult times alone.

The most common cause of whiplash is rear end accidents. In nearly all cases, the fault lies with the driver behind you. With legal assistance, you should be able to prove the liability of the other driver. In this case, their insurance should cover you for your pain and suffering, medical and car bills, and perhaps lost wages. Even if the other driver is uninsured, there are ways for you to seek full compensation. Before you talk with any insurance company, it is in your best interests to consult with an experienced car accident lawyer to ensure that your rights are being protected. Insurance companies have been known to offer low settlements, or even reject your claim altogether. You should not be left hanging when another driver is responsible for your injuries. You deserve to be treated fairly by your insurance provider.
