Whiplash-related injuries are some of the most common injuries suffered in motor vehicle accidents. However, many individuals mistakenly believe that whiplash isn’t worth pursuing compensation for. With over 200 years of combined injury law experience, James H. Brown and Associates strongly disagree; if you or a loved one have suffered a whiplash injury in an accident, you have the power to seek the compensation you deserve.
In addition to medical attention and treatment, seeking professional legal advice is one of the most critical steps in ensuring you’re able to recover from your injuries fully. Read on to learn three reasons to contact an injury lawyer for your whiplash injuries, as well as how James H. Brown and Associate helps whiplash victims attain complete, fair compensation for their injuries.
Reason #1 – Whiplash Injuries Aren’t Always Apparent
Many whiplash injuries take days, weeks, or even months to cause individuals pain. For this reason, it’s critical to seek complete care after being involved in an accident. After an accident, a complete medical diagnosis will catch whiplash injuries early and provide treatment to prevent them from developing into chronic pain or other debilitating conditions. Similarly, seeking sound legal advice early will make it easier for experienced injury lawyers to thoroughly document your case from start to finish.
Reason #2 – Whiplash Symptoms Can Worsen Over Time
While many whiplash injuries will improve with time, it’s also common for their symptoms to gradually develop into chronic neck, back, and shoulder pain. In some cases, pain and lost mobility can profoundly impact your quality of life in both the short and long term. Just like a qualified medical professional will be able to help with recovery, an experienced injury lawyer will be able to help ensure you receive fair compensation for chronic or worsening injuries.
Reason #3 – Whiplash Injury Law is Complicated
In Alberta, motor vehicle accident law is highly complex and requires high-level expertise to navigate successfully. For example, certain types of compensation (specifically, damages related to “pain and suffering”) are “capped,” but others (such as loss of income, inability to perform housekeeping tasks, long-term care expenses, and more) are not. It takes decades of experience to understand Alberta injury lawfully; sound legal advice is the best way to determine the full extent of your damages, as well as the best path to justice and the compensation you need to move forward.
