Neck Whiplash Injury
Reckless or negligent driving results in car accidents that occur with alarming frequency throughout North Carolina. Even apparently minor crashes or collisions may possibly injure you and have the potential to be detrimental to your health and well being.
Medical attention is absolutely necessary in order to rule out potential injuries if you are involved in an accident. As suggested by Mayo Clinic, whiplash symptoms may take some time to appear, ranging from a few hours to days. However, the effects of whiplash can last for many months after the accident. Some of the symptoms are as follows:
- Stiffness and pain in the neck that worsens with movement
- Reduced range of motion in the neck, head, or arms
- Regular headaches, weakness, or giddiness
- Pin pricks or numbness in the hands; and/or
- Soreness and pain in the arms, back, and shoulders
How to file an insurance claim involving Whiplash? In North Carolina, negligent and reckless drivers can be held legally accountable for the harm they cause in car crashes and resultant injuries. In the event of an accident, it is advised by the North Carolina Department of Insurance that drivers do the following:
- Stop driving and pull over to a safe place at or near the accident
- Call and inform the local enforcement agency or the North Carolina State Highway Patrol
- Obtain the driver’s contact information including the driver’s license number and vehicle registration number, and insurance details like policy number and name of their insurer
- Go to a hospital immediately and get medical attention even if the injuries seem minor to you; and
- Notify your insurer at the earliest so that you can file a whiplash injury claim
Getting compensation through a Whiplash personal injury claim: In order to be compensated through a Whiplash personal injury claim, you will need to provide a few things first. They are as follows:
- Medical records and bills – Collect any and all records provided by the hospital and the doctor that highlight your symptoms, diagnosis, test results, treatment, and follow-up care. Also collect the bills and the receipts for prescription medication and over-the-counter medicines.
- Statements provided by the doctor – Get a statement from your doctor that highlights the nature of your injury and the treatment recommended for recovery. In case your injury has impacted your health permanently, ask your doctor to give a detailed account of the type of care that will be required in the future.
If you decide to hire a whiplash lawyer, he will be able to survey through this list and add the items that fit with your case. This will aid in the neck whiplash injury calculation and setting the right amount of money. Our injury lawyers will bring their extensive experience and expertise to allow in the pursuit of justice for you and your family.
