Being in a car crash can cause a variety of injuries. Even if a person is not seriously injured, the soreness caused by cars colliding can linger for several days or weeks following an accident. When should an accident victim become worried about soreness after a Sacramento car crash?

When to See a Doctor after a Sacramento Car Crash?

It is a good idea to be checked by a physician after being involved in a car accident. The adrenaline “high” many victims experience after a crash can mask injury symptoms. Also, some injuries may not present symptoms for a few hours or days after a collision. Only a doctor can diagnose car accident injuries correctly.

Unfortunately, there is no easy way to tell when soreness could indicate a more severe injury. Everyone heals after a car accident at their own pace. However, if the soreness persists, becomes worse, you have trouble breathing, or experience any unexplained symptoms, you may want to contact a medical provider immediately.

Some factors that could impact your recovery time include:

  • The type of collision, such as a rear-end collision, side-impact crash, or rollover crash.
  • Whether vehicle safety features engaged, including the seatbelt, front airbags, and side airbags.
  • Speed of each vehicle at the time of the collision.
  • The types of vehicles involved. Larger vehicles tend to cause more severe injuries for the passengers of smaller vehicles.
  • The type and severity of the injury.
  • The person’s overall health condition at the time of the accident.

Car accidents can cause a variety of injuries. Some injuries may heal with time and rest. Other injuries may require minimal medical intervention. However, some injuries may require intensive medical care, including surgery, therapy, and weeks or months of recovery.

The best way to protect your health after a car accident is to seek medical attention as soon as possible. When your health is stable, contact a personal injury lawyer to discuss your options for recovering compensation for car accident injuries.

How Much Is My Sacramento Car Crash Claim Worth?

The value of a car accident claim depends on the facts in the case. There is no formula for calculating the value of a personal injury claim. It is based on factors such as the person’s injuries, medical bills, loss of income, and determination of fault for causing the accident.

A personal injury lawyer investigates the accident to gather evidence proving the other driver was responsible for causing the crash. This step is essential if you want to recover compensation for your injuries. You cannot receive money for the claim from the other driver’s insurance unless you can prove that the driver caused the crash.

Your attorney also helps you document your damages. You must also prove that you sustained damages as a direct cause of the car crash. Common damages caused by a car crash include:

  • Medical expenses and costs
  • Loss of income
  • Physical pain
  • Travel expenses
  • Emotional suffering
  • Permanent impairments and disabilities

From the very start of my case the Tiemann Law Firm was wonderful. Perter came all the way to my home to sit down and talk to me about my options. He made me and my partner feel very comfortable and promised us he would take the very best care of my case. Peter kept me informed every step of the way and was always on top of things. everything was done in a timely manor and I always felt like I was the only case he was working on because he was so fast. In the end Peter got me back way more money than I ever expected. I would recommend this law firm to everyone. I am very happy with the outcome of my case thanks to the Tiemann Law Firm! Thank you!

I was in a car accident a while back where I was injured and had to miss work for an extended period of time.  After nearly a year of fighting with the insurance company with no results and no progress, I met with Jelena Tiemann.  I couldn't have asked for a more responsive and supportive advocate.  We quickly reached a settlement and I finally was able to move from the stress and burden of feuding with my insurance.  I highly recommending meeting with Jelena if you're in need of a lawyer.

I was in a very bad/ major car accident I originally had an attorney who wasn’t trying to help me out much or take any of my calls so I called Tiemann and told them my situation. They made it an AWESOME and Smooth transition over to them and took on both cases I had. I just settled on my big case and am beyond great full. For them and their team! I highly recommend them. To add on to this a little On how much they will work with you, I moved to Montana in the middle of all Of this and it was not an issue!

I just saw my lawyer Jelena Tiemann on a t.v ad, which reminded me how much she helped when I was in a desperate situation. I just love her! That is why I feel a need to tell everyone. I had a situation that happened & didn’t know what to do, our where to go. I didn’t even know if she could help me or if any lawyer could. All I wanted was it to go away & was afraid most lawyers wanted to drag it out & possibly go to court. For one she was very professional but was very personable (maybe b.c she’s a lady). She didn’t make me feel embarrassed or self-conscious that I did something wrong or was the cause of the situation. She immediately said we should try our best before going to court. Let me handle some paperwork, if at the last we do go to court we have documents. She gave me all the details, pros and cons but reassured me she deals with these cases all the time. She came through and made it as painless as possible. I now have my life back.
