When involved in an auto accident, the most common result of personal injury are neck and back injuries. Both muscles and ligaments in the back and neck go into shock during the accident which results in unnecessary pain and the necessity for continuous medical expenses including doctor visits, prescription and physical therapy. The frequent treatments and remedies needed to recover from the injuries will take place over six to eight weeks, in addition to numerous side effects the patient will endure including:
- sleepless nights
- chronic pain
- inability to lift heavy things
- diminished sex life
Failure to seek treatment for such injuries will result in long-term symptoms. Accident victims have legal rights including the right to pursue compensation for medical expenses.
