What to Expect After a Personal Injury
Serious injuries resulting from a workplace accident or an automobile collision can take a heavy toll on your life. Even an incident as small as a fender bender in heavy traffic or slipping on a slick floor surface can result in long-term health problems that do not reveal themselves until weeks or months down the road. Without the help of medical experts to give a long-term prognosis after your injury, you may find yourself waking up to chronic pain or other lasting effects from it.
Along with physical suffering, long-term injury brings a host of other ongoing problems such as medical bills, emotional and relational hardship, time away from work or even inability to do your job. Most victims do not see these issues until they are right in the middle of them, struggling to perform basic tasks or wondering why they are having trouble relating to their loved ones.
Sadly, some doctors cover only the basic necessities of care for injury victims, and fail to look for the hidden signs of long-term injury. Even if your doctor advises further specialized treatment or procedures, your insurance policy may be insufficient to cover it. Without the right medical attention after your personal injury, you could be looking at years of physical recovery, along with a mountain of medical bills. The burden of these medical costs may only increase if the injury affects your ability to do your job.
Examples of some types of health consequences that may result over time from a car crash:
- Migraine or cluster headaches
- Bone and joint problems
- Muscle weakness
- Chronic fatigue
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Trouble sleeping
- Blurred or loss of vision
- Impaired coordination
- Loss of Balance
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Cognitive problems
Serious injury such as brain trauma is one of the most common personal injuries after an automobile accident. It happens when a forceful bump or blow to the head interferes with the brain’s ability to function normally. A traumatic brain injury may result from common injuries such as whiplash in a collision, or from a concussion sustained in a fall.
While traumatic brain injury requires critical care, it is not always immediately diagnosed after an accident. If your injury does not seem to be severe, your doctor may not even check for symptoms of brain injury. But without being treated, traumatic brain injury can have a devastating impact on your health and your way of life. This is why it is essential for victims to seek expert medical help after suffering an injury, especially when the injury involves impact to your head or neck.
What to Do After an Injury
When you find yourself dealing with increasing pain and suffering after an injury, you should not resist seeking help out of fear of how much it will cost. Putting off necessary medical attention only increases the harm done to your health, as well as the impact to your family.
If you have been injured due to someone else’s negligence in Anniston, whether on the road or at work, you should not have to pay for the medical treatment you need out of your own pocket. Instead, the person responsible for your injury should be held accountable for their actions and bear the financial responsibility for the damage they have caused you.
