What Should You Do After a Car Accident?
The first thing you should do after any motor vehicle collision at any speed is to see a trauma doctor within 24 to 48 hours. Many minor injuries don’t present major debilitating symptoms until several weeks or even months after the accident itself. If you don’t see a doctor within 24 to 48 hours of the accident you won’t have a valid personal injury claim.
Serious injuries result in extensive medical treatment and therapy. You may feel that the initial contact left you battered and bruised, but otherwise alright. Some injuries may take weeks or months to present, and it is important to make sure that you remain healthy in the months to come.
Many injuries to the back, neck and associated vertebrae will not immediately present symptoms. I will never take a case where a genuine injury isn’t present, but I can tell you that from my extensive experience, many of the chronic life-altering symptoms my clients face don’t show up for weeks or months after the accident. If you settle your case too quickly, you will find that you have no resources available for the treatment and physical therapy that will be needed down the road.
Santa Ana is a Hub for Government, Financial Services and Motor Vehicle Accidents
Santa Ana is California’s 11th largest city with more than 300,000 residents, and the centralized location of government and banking institutions creates even more traffic in the area. The density of vehicles and people leads to a variety of car accidents at intersections, in business driveways and parking areas, and on the highways that surround this busy metropolitan area. The traffic on I-5 and the 405 can be as heavy as any freeway in the nation at times, and a single mishap can lead to a chain of accidents up and down the corridor. One minute you are traveling 55 mph and the next minute traffic is at a dead stop. With distracted drivers looking at cell phones and texting these roads present a dangerous combination of circumstances that results in one of the highest car accident rates in the State of California.
