Are you searching for an experienced Riverside or Corona personal injury attorney? You can almost always bet that the eastbound and westbound lanes to the 91 freeway in Corona, California, will be congested with traffic during rush hour. And on most days, if you are a commuter like me, you will notice that there is almost always one or two freeway accidents involving motor vehicles. Parties that are involved in minor car accidents typically pull over to the side of the road or shoulder, but major accidents typically result in damaged or stalled vehicles that are left in their lanes.
Drivers that are injured in motor vehicle accidents are recommended to remain in their vehicle, put on hazard lights, and call emergency services for medical and emergency personnel. Attempting to exit your car and cross lanes on the freeway can result in catastrophic injuries, and cause even more car or truck accidents.
My name is Rivers Morrell and after more than 40 years as an experienced Riverside or Corona personal injury attorney I can tell you how important it is to see a doctor within 24 to 48 hours of any vehicle collision, even if you think you aren’t injured. The failure to see a doctor soon after any vehicle collision allows an insurance company to deny an otherwise valid personal injury claim.
Many people involved in minor accidents refuse to seek medical treatment because they do not believe they have been injured, or are worried about the cost of medical billing. However, if you are not at fault for the cause of the accident you are entitled to be compensated for associated reasonable medical treatment and billing from the at-fault party. This can typically including emergency room visits, medication, time missed at work, physical therapy, chiropractic treatments, and other therapies to help an injured party rehabilitate. Even minor accidents can cause long lasting painful discomfort to the neck, back, and shoulder region. Typical injuries include lumbar and cervical sprains and strains, which will require chiropractic treatment and office visits.
