Many of our patients ask this very question in our clinic. After an auto accident it can be confusing with what to do, how to proceed and who is going to pay for the damages your car received and your body received. Don’t let fear or worry stop you from being educated. We advise our patients to be educated and know their rights and the process of getting rehabiliated fully. Here are a few reasons why you may consider speaking with an attorney.

Benefits of Hiring an Attorney in Utah after an Auto Accident

There are several benefits to hiring a personal injury attorney for an auto accident, including:

  1. Knowledge of the law: Personal injury attorneys have a thorough understanding of the legal process and can help you navigate the complex legal system. They can advise you on your legal rights and help you understand your options for seeking compensation.
  2. Negotiation skills: Attorneys are skilled negotiators who can work with insurance companies to help you obtain a fair settlement. They can help you negotiate for a higher settlement amount than you would be able to get on your own.
  3. Experience with similar cases: An experienced personal injury attorney has likely worked on many cases similar to yours and can draw from that experience to help build a strong case on your behalf.
  4. Objectivity: After an accident, you may be emotionally and physically overwhelmed. An attorney can provide an objective perspective and help you make rational decisions.
  5. Improved chances of success: Statistics have shown that individuals who hire an attorney for their personal injury case are more likely to receive a favorable outcome than those who choose to represent themselves.
  6. Handling paperwork: Personal injury cases involve a significant amount of paperwork, including medical records, police reports, and insurance forms. An attorney can help you manage and complete all of the necessary paperwork and filings.

Overall, hiring a personal injury attorney can help you navigate the legal system, negotiate for a fair settlement, and ultimately increase your chances of receiving compensation for your injuries and losses after an auto accident.

Get Checked after an Accident

We also recommend getting your body checked after an auto accident. Sometimes car accident injuries do not show up right away. They also can get worse if left untreated. It never hurts to get a consult or exam to make sure you are on the right path of healing. Many people thing taking OTC drugs will get them through their pain. However, they do not consider that the lasting effects of a whiplash injury included decreased range of motion, chronic pain, and even early onset of arthritis and types of muscle pain and myalgia. It does not cost anything out of pocket to get checked if you utilize your PIP or personal injury protection coverage that is included with every Utah Auto Insurance policy. This is included, by law, on your Utah insurance coverage. Learn more about that here. Every person has the right to feel normal after an auto accident. Don’t hesitate and start getting better now.

What Does Whiplash Do To Your Body

Whiplash is a type of neck injury that occurs when the head is forcefully and rapidly jerked back and forth, causing the neck to overextend. This can result in damage to the soft tissues in the neck, including muscles, ligaments, and nerves.

If left untreated, whiplash can cause a number of complications, including:

  1. Chronic pain: Whiplash can cause chronic pain in the neck, shoulders, and back. This can make it difficult to perform everyday activities and can impact quality of life.
  2. Headaches: Many people with whiplash experience headaches, which can be severe and persistent.
  3. Reduced mobility: Whiplash can cause stiffness and reduced mobility in the neck and shoulders, making it difficult to turn the head or move the arms.
  4. Cognitive problems: Some people with whiplash may experience cognitive problems, such as difficulty concentrating or remembering things.
  5. Depression and anxiety: Chronic pain and other symptoms of whiplash can lead to depression and anxiety, which can further impact quality of life.
  6. Sleep disturbances: Pain and other symptoms of whiplash can make it difficult to sleep, leading to fatigue and further impacting overall health.

It is important to seek treatment for whiplash as soon as possible to prevent these complications from developing. Treatment may include rest, pain management, physical therapy, and other interventions as needed.
