Health Concerns Following a Motor Vehicle Accident
If you have walked away from a motor vehicle accident without any major injuries, you are very lucky. However, you should still see a doctor just to get checked out. This is true even after an accident that didn’t seem so bad. The fact is that you can end up with whiplash from a minor fender bender, and that neck soreness may be your only symptom for now, but things can change in the days, weeks, or even months after an accident.
You should be especially alert to changing symptoms if you hit your head or if your neck got whipped around fast enough to have caused a concussion. Go back to the doctor immediately if you begin to experience any of these symptoms:
- Chronic daily headaches or migraines
- Vertigo, dizziness, or lightheadedness
- Mood changes such as sudden irritability
- Concentration or memory issues
- Difficulty sleeping
- Blurry vision
- Ringing in the ears
- New sensitivity to light or sound
Fortunately, California allows you to file a case up to two years after most personal injuries, so you don’t have to worry your medical bills will pile up without compensation. You should, however, start your case as soon as you can by hiring a personal injury attorney in the state.
