One of the most common injuries that results from Arizona car accidents is whiplash. Unfortunately, whiplash is an injury that's historically been met with skepticism for many reasons, but anyone who has suffered from this condition fully understands that whiplash can be completely debilitating. In addition, this injury can require much in the way of treatment and corresponding costs in an effort to recover, which is why anyone who has been diagnosed with whiplash as a result of a crash should seek the immediate help of experienced car accident lawyers. Below is a brief overview of this issue.
After whiplash has been diagnosed in a patient following an Arizona car accident, there are usually several steps involved with its treatment. The intensity of these treatments will largely depend on the severity of the whiplash, but in general patients who suffer from this condition can expect the following at a minimum:
While no two whiplash injuries are ever exactly alike, the steps mentioned above represent examples of a typical treatment approach that's prescribed by medical professionals.
The costs that could arise in conjunction with a whiplash diagnosis can quickly become exorbitant, even if the injured person has health insurance. Many of these costs are incurred in an effort to obtain the original diagnosis, as X-rays and MRI scans may be necessary to locate the injury. After the injury has been discovered and diagnosed, the treatments above also come with heavy costs that are generally ongoing in nature, and any hospital stay that's required can significantly add to the losses suffered by the person who was injured.
In addition, there are other costs that could be associated with such an injury, and examples of these costs include the loss of income if a person is unable to work for any period of time and the pain and suffering that is always part of any significant whiplash injury. Therefore, if you or someone you love has been diagnosed with whiplash as a result of a crash, contact the Phoenix personal injury lawyers at Phillips Law Group as soon as possible to schedule a free initial consultation.
