    What type of accidents are car accident cases?

    These are a very particular sort of car accident. They involve someone being injured in a car accident that was not their own fault. The car may have collided with another car, a fixed structure (such as a lamppost), a cyclist or a pedestrian.

    What sort of injuries do car accident cases include?

    They include a wide range of injuries. If you have visited a doctor about your injuries, then it is likely that it can be included in the case. Some injuries are so serious that you will need to be taken directly to an accident and emergency department from the scene by an ambulance. You may also have received emergency first aid at the scene from a paramedic. Some people are given pain relief to make them more comfortable.

    Other people are taken to the accident and emergency department by a friend or member of their family. They may have gone home thinking that they felt alright and then realised that an injury was worse than they thought. Some broken wrists, sprained ankles and concussions are dealt with like this.

    Other injuries do not actually become apparent until the following day. Whiplash is a typical example. This is a very common injury of the neck – it affects the soft tissues, not the bones. The soft tissues of the neck are muscles, ligaments and tendons. These structures become stretched beyond their usual range of movement during the impact. However, they may not start hurting right away. It is often the next day that the discomfort starts. Whiplash symptoms often involve pain and stiffness in the neck, pins and needles down the arms and headaches.
