Years ago my brother was involved in car accident where he was the victim of a rear-end collision. The driver, a teenage girl, slammed into my brothers vehicle from behind.
Both the teenage driver and my brother were seriously injured. The young girl suffered severe head trauma and my brother suffered a lumbar sprain, cervical sprain and bulging disc. He was rushed to the hospital immediately.
My brother ended up accepting a small settlement for his injuries. Mind you this happened 20 years ago. The consequences in this case, is that his injuries never went away.
The courts and attorneys, then, did not have the information they have today regarding the long-term effects and disabilities a victim endures after such an accident.
Today my brother suffers from severe Sciatica (Sciatica is the term given to pain down the leg, which is caused by irritation of the main nerve into the leg, the sciatic nerve.) The sciatica was brought upon by the direct trauma of the impact caused by the car accident.
This is just an example of why a vehicle accident victims should ALWAYs speak to an attorney first, before ever speaking to any insurance company after a car crash. Car accident sciatica is a result of many vehicle collisions.
My brother excepted that pain and injury was to be expected after his serious car crash. However, what he didnt expect was that later in the years he would suffer the long term consequence of Sciatica.
Recently, statistics have shown that a majority of car crash victims do suffer disability and long-term health issues.
If you or a loved one are a victim of a car accident collision, and have suffered a back injury, seek legal assistance immediately. Do not just take the word of a doctor or an insurance company.
A qualified car accident attorney will be able to advise you of your legal rights. It is possible to endure lingering injuries from a serious crash for years to come.
A personal injury attorney who has worked with vehicle collision claims can give you more information regarding sciatica facts and help you understand exactly how traumatic such a car accident can be on a victim physically for years to come.
