Were you recently involved in an auto accident? Did you feel no pain after this accident? Did you know that symptoms of pain do not always show up immediately after an accident? If you were involved in an auto accident, it is important for you to follow up with your family doctor and contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible.
A common injury that occurs during an accident is whiplash. Sometimes, the symptoms of whiplash do not show until many days after a crash. Some primary symptoms can include:
- neck pain and stiffness
- shoulder pain and stiffness
- jaw pain (temporomandibular joint symptoms)
- arm pain
- arm weakness
- visual disturbances
- ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
- back pain
If you do not receive treatment for your injuries, they may become chronic and lead to a lifetime of debilitating pain.
Pennsylvania law mandates that auto insurance policy holders must have at least $5,000 in medical benefits coverage. Accordingly, insurance carriers that write policies within Pennsylvania will not sell you a policy without at least $5,000.00 in medical benefits coverage. These benefits are available to you regardless of who is at fault in your accident. By using your medical benefits coverage, your premiums will NOT go up. This coverage is available for anyone in the car at the time of the auto accident.
