Have you been injured in a car crash in Irvine CA or anywhere in the OC, LA or Inland Empire? Are you looking for an experienced Orange County car accident and injury attorney? If you were not transported for medical care at the scene please make sure to visit an Urgent Care or your primary physician within 48 hours of the accident. The failure to do so can severely reduce your ability to submit an injury claim or eliminate it entirely.
The insurance adjuster representing the driver who was responsible for your car accident is going to to do everything possible to offer you the lowest settlement possible. That is their one and only job. If you didn’t see a doctor within 48 hours they will assert your injuries occurred “somewhere else” and deny your otherwise valid personal injury claim. This puts them in a very strong legal position.
You see, many of those who have been injured in a car crash in Irvine CA or throughout Orange Count try to convince themselves they’re ok in the immediate aftermath. If you’ve been injured in a motor vehicle accident you need to know that many serious injuries present no symptoms for days and sometimes even weeks. If you tell yourself you were “lucky” or “it’s only a few bumps and bruises” you may cost yourself a lot of unnecessary pain and expense.
The forces exerted on those injured in a car crash in Irvine CA can serious stress on the human body. Damage to the discs in your neck and back as well as the ligaments, tendons and muscles which connect throughout the body can take weeks before presenting painful and debilitating symptoms. You may feel fine, even good enough to work in the days following the accident. Four to six weeks later the pain in your back or neck starts to set in and three or four days later you are in too much pain to literally move.
Unfortunately for many of these victims, the tens of thousands of dollars for injuries they sustained in the accident will have to be paid for out of their own pocket simply because they did not take the time to see a doctor.
