If you were a driver or passenger in a Dallas-Fort Worth auto accident, it is likely that you have suffered some kind of injury. Although the most severe injuries are those which are immediately obvious (for example: broken bones, lost limbs, traumatic brain injury), that does not mean that less obvious injuries aren’t in their own way equally serious. As a board certified personal injury lawyer with more than 20 years of experience, I certainly know that a wide range of injuries sustained in Dallas-Fort Worth traffic collisions can have severe and longlasting effects.
Neuromusculoskeletal injuries frequently occur in car wrecks. They involve damage throughout the body in the victim’s bones, muscles, joints, tendons and ligaments, potentially caused by any number of factors such as a sudden impact, pressure, or other forces commonly experienced in motor vehicle collisions.
Sometimes, a neuromusculoskeletal injury is not immediately apparent. The adrenalin rush one experiences after being in a car crash can often mast the initial symptoms. Even when they become more apparent over the next few days, many accident victims try to tough it out and tell themselves that the soreness will go away.
In my experience, ignoring the pain is a mistake. For one thing, delaying medical care following a car wreck can seriously damage your injury claim if you decide you need to make one later. Secondly, serious musculoskeletal injury can require years of medical treatment and physical rehabilitation including chiropractic treatment and possibly orthopedic surgery to correct. The sooner you see a physician or experienced doctor of chiropractic, the better.
