Being in a car accident is complicated and traumatic, especially if the accident has caused injuries that require expensive medical care. Auto accident injury treatments ensure that patients can access the services that they need to treat any injuries that have occurred to prevent them from worsening or developing into long-term conditions while working directly with the patient’s attorney or fault insurance to ensure that the process is as easy as possible for everyone involved.
If you have become injured due to an automotive accident, you must seek appropriate medical attention. There are automotive accident injury clinics that specifically provide medical care and other automotive accident services to those who have incurred an injury from a car accident to ensure that they get the initial medical care as well as any follow-up care such as physical therapy or treatment for whiplash that they may require. An automotive accident injury clinic will work directly with a third party to negotiate with the patient-at-fault insurance company or attorney to determine how the medical bills should be settled. They will also often offer on-site diagnostic imaging services to ensure that all of the most commonly experienced injuries from car accidents are accurately treated under one roof.
The most common injuries that are likely to develop after a minor car accident include whiplash and neck strain which occur when there is sudden forward or backward movement of the head due to severe force exerted onto the car. Head and neck injuries can range quite a bit in severity depending on the angle of impact and the force of the impact, with minor concussions and whiplash being on the mild end of potential injuries and serious brain injuries, and injuries to the spinal cord being on the more severe end. Other commonly incurred injuries from car accidents include fractures and broken bones, burns, facial injuries, contusions, burns, and internal injuries. Some of the injuries such as internal injuries, whiplash, and head injuries will take several hours or even days to display symptoms, making a check-up with a healthcare provider immediately following a car accident vital in ensuring your overall health and safety.
Whiplash is one of the most common injuries to occur from a car accident but can be very unpredictable in displaying symptoms and duration of symptoms.
Common symptoms that will often develop within a few hours or days following the injury include:
– Stiffness and pain in the neck;
– Limited range of motion in the neck;
– Soreness, tenderness, or pain in the shoulders, arms, and upper back;
– Increased pain when moving the neck;
– Fatigue, dizziness;
– Numbness or tingling in the arms; and
– Headaches occurring in the base of the skull.
Some less common but still normally occurring symptoms of whiplash include tinnitus (ringing in the ears), problems with memory, difficulty sleeping, increased irritability, increased feelings of depression, and difficulty concentrating. In most cases, patients with whiplash can expect all of their symptoms to dissipate within several weeks but will likely require a treatment plan including medication and exercises to ensure that they heal properly. In some cases, patients will experience long-lasting chronic neck pain or other chronic conditions due to the injury.
