Georgia Car Accident Attorney, Montlick & Associates, Shares Important Tips for Car Accident Victims Suffering from Neck and Back Pain

"Soft Tissue Injuries" is a medical term that is mostly associated with auto accidents, and caused by hyperextension of the ligaments, tendons or muscles of the neck or back. Nearly a million people suffer soft tissue injuries each year. The Georgia Car Accident Attorneys at Montlick & Associates know that pain from these injuries can last for extended periods of time, resulting in physical activities being extremely limited. In many instances, there are relapses or even pain and difficulties from these injuries that can last a lifetime.

Even though over time they can involve a lot of physical pain, expensive medical treatment and prolonged periods of disability, car accident victims tend to underestimate soft tissue injuries. A common problem is that some people may not experience all of the symptoms for days, weeks or even months after the accident. At Montlick & Associates, we know that getting proper medical treatment after an accident typically leads to faster recovery - both physically and financially. Since the insurance companies will try to downplay or dismiss soft tissue injuries and offer injured people much lower settlements than they deserve, having complete records of all diagnoses and treatments will help you prove the full extent of your injuries when filing an insurance claim.

Each state has its own laws regarding the types of damages that are recoverable from an auto accident. In Georgia, for example, a person injured by the carelessness of another has a right to compensation for pain and suffering or loss of quality of life, reimbursement for medical bills and lost wages incurred due to the accident, and in some cases punitive damages. There are many different sources of possible recovery for accident victims, and it is important that they all are identified.
