We see many accident injury victims, both here in Myrtle Beach and up in our New Jersey office too. While each state has generally the same guidelines, there are nonetheless small differences. One thing that isn’t different and this is my opinion, is that you should get an accident attorney even if the accident wasn’t your fault. So why?
Insurance Companies Want to Pay as Little as Possible
If you feel the need to see a doctor for any reason that is to do with your accident, however minor, it is my opinion that you should get an accident attorney to help with your case. When in an accident which isn’t your fault, maybe you’ve been rear ended or they side swiped you their insurance company is responsible for your pain and suffering. BUT, insurance companies are not interested in paying out and will pay out as little as possible. That’s where an accident attorney will help as they can get the insurance company to pay what they should pay as opposed to what they will try and get away with paying.
Hi guys, came across this simple video and thought I would share with everyone to show how much force is in an accident, even one as slow as this one.
This is why I continually push and promote as much information on whiplash as I do. It’s vital to be checked out as soon as possible after any collision and this video shows exactly why as the speed is just 6.4mph.
This post is more of an opinion based what I’ve seen over the years as a Myrtle Beach chiropractor and you should always seek legal advice, but should you use an attorney for a Myrtle Beach accident? As you’re probably aware, I see a great many accident victims in my practice. Some injuries are more complex and take a lot of time to treat and heal, while others are more simple whiplash and soft tissue injuries that we can treat more effectively.
Why You Should Get Checked Out After an Auto Accident
Why you should get checked out after an auto accident is quite key to your future health. Auto accidents are very common place and here in Socastee, Horry County in Myrtle Beach is no different. However it is incredible the number of people who have an accident, and just because it’s minor they don’t get checked out properly. Sure, they may visit the ER and when they’re told no broken bones, they assume all is good. But that is not necessarily true. When a person is involved in an accident, one of the most common results is a whiplash injury. This is the sudden movement forward and back of the head and neck. It causes small tears in muscles and if not treated properly, these tears do not heal properly, and in the long term, cause more pain and problems.
What you do after an auto accident is vital not only in terms of your treatment and passage to better health, but also if you are looking to make an insurance claim to help with your costs. There are many things that can happen to you in an auto accident, and while your first port of call should usually be to the ER to ensure nothing serious is happening, there is a follow up procedure to follow to ensure you do not have any other injuries that the ER will not necessarily detect.
