Being injured in a car accident can result in a variety of injuries. In some cases, those injuries are not easily diagnosed, even with X-rays, CT scan, or other diagnostic tests. However, your doctor may choose to use an MRI to diagnose soft tissue and other injuries. It is very important to seek medical attention after being involved in a car accident. Even though you may only be experiencing a few aches and pains right now, those symptoms could be an indication of a more serious injury. To discuss the steps you should take following a car accident, contact our law firm for a free consultation with one of our Fresno personal injury lawyers.
The injuries you sustain in a car accident can change your life forever. For victims of traumatic injuries, another driver’s negligence can result in life-altering changes that prevent the victim from working, taking care of family members, or being able to perform simple tasks such as dressing themselves or driving to the store. Even a so-called “minor” injury from a car accident can result in a hospital stay, physical therapy, and time away from work.
