What kind of medical care should I seek after an accident?

Immediately after a car accident in Illinois, you probably already know what type of medical care you need to seek for injuries: emergency assistance. You always want to work with the on-site EMTs and other personnel, even if you do not feel like you are injured. However, what do you do if your injuries seem to linger, or if new ones show up?

For example, things like back pain and stiffness in your neck can be caused by whiplash. In the wake of the crash, you may not notice them at all. You could wake up a few nights later, though, feeling very sore. It could slowly grow worse or just remain as a nagging pain that never fades.

When this happens, it may be time to go see a chiropractor. You could have joint and alignment issues that are causing you pain. Until these things are fixed, that pain may never go away. The chiropractor can sometimes help to work on your skeletal system, realigning everything, which takes stress off of your muscles, tendons and ligaments, thereby eliminating your pain.

It's very important to note that these issues could show up on a time frame of their own. You may not realize that you have any discomfort until weeks or even months later. Just because there is this dead time in between does not mean that your injuries are not related to the accident. That could still be the root cause.

If you have been hurt and you had to pay to go to the chiropractor, or to get other medical assistance, make sure that you know what right you may have to compensation.
