How Pain Affects Personal Injury Claims
Most whiplash injuries resolve on their own and even serious cases tend to go away within a few months. So, if an accident victim experiences symptoms that exist beyond two or three months, there may be something more significant than a typical whiplash injury.
Symptoms such as stiffness, tingling, inflammation, and limited mobility that last for more than a few months could indicate the presence of cervical or intervertebral damage. It may also suggest cervical muscle damage or injuries to the nerve roots that surround the neck.
In either case, prolonged symptoms associated with a neck injury should not be overlooked or casually diagnosed as “whiplash.” Instead, seek professional medical treatment and if symptoms persist, work with one of Fast Help’s accident injury doctors to achieve positive results. Not only is this important for one’s personal health, it is also important for those involved in injury-related insurance claims or personal injury suits.
To follow through with a whiplash personal injury claim, it’s important to have documented medical records that justify and prove the extent of the injury, how the injury has affected one’s ability to maintain a well-rounded life, and how the injury has prevented the victim from performing their professional obligations.
