Have you noticed a loss of physical sensation since an accident? Have you experienced frequent headaches or a stiff neck? It may be something simple that will just go away with time, or it could be a serious spinal cord injury. That brings us to the real question — is it worth the risk to not see a doctor and hire an attorney?
The symptoms and severity of an injury aren’t always evident immediately following an accident. Head, neck, and back injuries are especially sneaky. What may seem, at first, to be minor aches and pains could turn out to be much more severe over time. That’s why it’s extremely important to get checked out by a medical professional as soon as possible.
The most frequent causes of head and neck injuries are rear-end car accidents, however there are many types of accidents that can cause a head, neck, back, or spinal cord injury. Motorcycle, bicycle, or pedestrian accidents often result in these types of injuries, as do contact sports injuries, and even physical altercations and assault.
