Traffic accidents can be some of the most physically, mentally, and financially devastating events in one’s life. In the year 2018 in NYC alone, there were a total of 277,971 traffic collisions. That’s why at New York Injury Associates, our primary goal is to get those who’ve just been in a traumatic car accident both the medical and legal representation they deserve. To be clear, we are not a law firm, but when it comes to the legalities of a serious car accident, we make sure all the medical and legal documents are organized properly. We will work one-on-one with your attorney to make sure their process is just as smooth as your physical recovery. Our car accident doctors in Jericho have years of experience under their belt and have tackled the worst injuries imaginable from car accidents. The specific doctors/facilities we refer you to will depend on the severity of the injuries sustained in the accident.
The type of both medical assistance and legal representation will all depend on how severe the car accident was. When your vehicle is struck by another, several things can happen. Many of one’s injuries stem from how violently your body is shaken during the accident. This is why something as simple as wearing a seatbelt will literally make a world of difference, not only for your physical health but for what your attorney has to work with as well. Nevertheless, whether you’re wearing your seatbelt or not, being violently shaken after your vehicle is struck can lead to broken bones. It can also lead to burns from the seatbelt, head trauma from violently striking your head against the wheel or window, and in worst case scenarios other than death, brain injury, and back and spinal cord trauma. In these worst case scenarios, we recommend you be rushed to the nearest emergency room immediately, but once the worst moments of all that are behind you, our car accident Doctors in Jericho will assist you in whatever physical therapy is necessary for your long term recovery.
In terms of how your body reacts at the exact moment of the collision, you will experience an immense amount of adrenaline. Your pupils may dilate, and you may not immediately experience any physical pain due to how fast your energy levels and heart rate are. Although this immediate and increased sense of energy can, in turn, cause you to not feel the physical injuries you just sustained, this does not in any way make them less severe. This is what our car accident doctors in Jericho specialize in.
