If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, you probably have a lot of questions to ask. You may wonder how common your type of
injury is, and whether it's worth pursuing a claim. Although your injury may seem minor, or your pain or symptoms may seem minor after the crash
or you might think your pain will just go away on its own. It doesn't.
After years of litigation, the attorneys at Testa Law Group have seen many injuries and there are certain types of injuries we commonly see in
people who have been in accidents aren't immediately apparent right after the collision. It may take days for your neck or back to start to hurt,
even though the damage was caused by the collision. If not treated, many types of injuries will just get worse and cause other problems for you.
You could find very quickly that something that starts as a twinge in your back becomes a pain that radiates down your arm or leg and affects your
range of motion and ability to perform everyday tasks or even sleep at night. Then there is the common chronic headache you thought was just stress
when actually is a symptom of a brain injury caused by the impact of the collision.
For your own health, it's really important to see a health care provider as soon as you start to experience any symptoms after the accident. Some
types of injuries don't show up on x-rays, and if you didn't immediately seek medical attention, insurance companies will dispute your claim even
though your pain and suffering is very real. Without speaking with a health care provider, you cannot make a claim to get medical costs paid.
Each year, we've helped countless people injured in accidents to receive compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering,
disfigurement and disability, and loss of normal life. We talk daily to people just like you, who have been told by insurance companies that their
injuries are all in their head, or try to deny that they were caused by your accident.
We can help you document your injuries and connect them to your accident so that you can obtain the compensation the law says you should have.
