Not all back injuries are immediately apparent after an accident. It takes some time for the initial shock of the accident to wear off. But the first moments after such a crash are critical in getting medical attention. If nerve damage occurs, movement, breathing, and other motor functions can be affected, and sometimes with lifelong consequence. The faster an injured person can get medical attention, the better the long term prognosis. Don’t play the tough guy and try to walk it off.
It’s a terrible fact that very few people regain mobility after injuries that cause total paralysis. However, if an accident victim has some movement in his or her legs following the initial trauma, the majority can return to significant movement. But this is provided that an ongoing regimen of proper medical care and treatment is followed. Medical care and therapy is critical.
A few seconds is all it takes for a severe collision to create life-altering consequences. If permanent or long term disability occurs, victims may not be able to work in the same capacity, with life long consequences to the victims and their familes. Medical bills will continue to mount while income is greatly reduced. Few insurance policies have the kind of coverage that fulfills these needs.

This means personal injury victims have two years to pursue a lawsuit after the accident occurred. Wrongful death claims have a range of one to three years for their statute of limitations.
