Many rear-end collisions happen when a vehicle is at a complete stop at an intersection. Because slow speeds are involved, the injuries sustained may not appear serious at first. They often involve injuries to the neck or back, such as whiplash, but can be much worse.
At Eglet Prince, in Las Vegas, we represent people who have been injured in rear-end car accidents throughout Nevada. Our legal team has recovered millions of dollars in compensation for thousands of catastrophic injury victims.
If you have been involved in a car accident, it can be difficult to tell the full extent of your injuries at first. Many serious injuries start out as minor ailments. People feel tired or confused. They may experience numbness or tingling in their limbs. It is only later that they are diagnosed with a spine or brain injury.
Because it often takes time to understand the full scope of your injuries, it is critical to seek medical treatment immediately. It is also critical to continue medical treatment until your doctor tells you that you are better and to not settle your accident case too soon.
Calling the other driver’s insurance company the day after an accident and telling it that you feel fine can be a big mistake — especially if you are later diagnosed with a serious injury. You may find that your original words are used against you when trying to get the compensation you deserve.
At Eglet Prince, we urge our clients to let us handle legal matters for them. If you have been involved in a car accident, talk with us before talking to the other driver’s insurance company. We will make sure that the full extent of your injuries is understood so that you receive the maximum value of your case.
