The Houston Auto Accidents Attorneys at DeSimone Law Office have been handling car accident cases for over twenty years. The most common personal injury resulting from an auto accident to our clients are neck and back injuries. The abnormal motion to the neck and back from a traffic accident will cause the muscles and ligaments in the neck and back to go into shock . The result is pain in the neck and back that will not subside without the necessity of medical expenses for doctor visits, prescriptions and physical therapy. Physical therapy consisting of heat treatments, electrical stimulation, massage, ultrasound and exercise over a period of six to eight weeks is usually necessary to completely recover from the injuries. During this time the accident victim probably will experience headaches from the tightening muscles in the neck, sleepless nights, trouble sleeping, an inability to lift heavy items, a diminished sex life, and an inability to do basic household chores amongst other things. Failure to seek treatment immediately for these types of injuries will result in the symptoms persisting and not getting any better. There are other symptoms of back injuries that indicate a more serious injury than strained muscles and ligaments that we will address in next week’s blog.
If you have been in an car accident and suffered a neck or back injury, contact the lawyers at DeSimone Law Office immediately. They will make sure you get the treatment and money you deserve for the negligence of the at fault driver.
