More than 140,000 Arizona car accidents occur on an annual basis, and when these situations occur they lead to more than 65,000 injuries. While some of these injuries are extremely serious, thousands of them are of a nature that people would describe them as minor. Unfortunately, many people who suffer from what they believe are minor injuries do not explore their legal rights and options with a Phoenix car accident lawyer until it's too late and they have incurred enormous medical bills and suffered through excruciating pain. Below is a look at how seemingly minor injuries can lead to enormous medical bills and other costs.
There are many different injuries that can result from Arizona car accidents, and examples of those that are common and that are thought of as minor include the following:
Any of the injuries listed above and many others can become serious problems both financially and medically for those who do not have them treated immediately. These problems that can develop include the potential for infections to develop from broken glass-caused cuts and abrasions, ongoing tendon problems caused by an initial seat belt injury and serious and never-ending neck and shoulder problems that result from the unnatural motions that lead to whiplash injuries. These problems can ultimately require extensive medical care and treatment and even surgery.
Anyone who is involved in an Arizona car accident and who suffers what may seem like a minor injury should not simply assume that their problems will disappear. Instead, even if someone suffers a minor injury, he or she should seek medical attention and then seek the advice of a Arizona auto accident attorney who understands the legal process and how minor injuries can become major problems.
