Sumter Car Accident Whiplash Lawyer

This head-neck injury is one of the most common car crash injuries. It’s also one of the most difficult crash-related injuries to diagnose. The Sumter car accident whiplash lawyers at the Stanley Law Group help ensure that victims get the treatment they need when they need it.

The violent back-and-forth and side-to-side motion in a car crash jostles the cervical spine. This motion injures the nerves where the brain meets the spine, which is a very critical part of the body. What begins as neck soreness soon becomes severe pain radiating down the arms and eventually causes paralysis.

Accident shock, a transitory condition, has the same initial symptoms as whiplash. Furthermore, whiplash is a soft tissue injury that most diagnostic tests, such as X-Ray pictures, cannot detect. As a result, doctors often quickly dismiss initial symptoms. Only a doctor experienced in this area can determine if the victim has whiplash, or something even worse, like a spine injury.

On a related note, whiplash is common in weeks not commonly associated with serious injuries, such as parking lot fender-benders. The nature of whiplash contributes to the diagnosis and treatment difficulties.

Why Hire a Sumter Car Accident Whiplash Lawyer

Since a car crash hits a victim like a ton of bricks, legal action is usually the last thing on the victim’s mind. Other needs, such as medical care and alternative transportation, are much more pressing. However, we are hard-wired to believe that when something like that happens, someone is responsible.

Similarly, lawyers are hard-wired to address the immediate and long-term needs that all personal injury victims have.

At the Stanley Law Group, we have professional relationships with doctors, car rental agencies, mechanics, and other injury-related providers. Usually, these providers charge no money upfront. We always put first things first. As soon as you reach out to us, we reach out to our contacts, so you get the services you need, as opposed to the services an insurance adjuster approves.

Furthermore, someone usually is responsible for a personal injury. Driver error causes 98 percent of the car wrecks in South Carolina. In a perfect world, victims wouldn’t need a lawyer for this purpose, because tortfeasors (negligent actors) would voluntarily accept responsibility for their mistakes. But we don’t live in a perfect world.

Part of this responsibility includes paying compensation for economic losses, such as medical bills, and noneconomic losses, such as pain and suffering. The average attorney-negotiated settlement is over three times higher than the average non-attorney-negotiated personal injury settlement.
