We often get calls from people involved in an automobile accident and say, “Attorney Needleman, I think I have whiplash.” Whiplash is really a number of things. It can be a neck sprain/neck strain, which are similar, or it can be even more than that. That’s where the medical providers come into play.
We, as lawyers, have to rely on the opinions and the advice provided by medical providers. One of the first things we’re going to do is gather your medical reports, whether they’re from an emergency room, a walk-in clinic, or a private physician. Once we have that, and we can see what the accurate diagnosis is, we can get started for you right away.
