CHEST INJURY CLAIMS
After an auto accident, you should always seek immediate medical attention, even if you don’t think you’ve been hurt. Chest injuries aren’t always obvious. Internal injuries do not always show external signs, but they can be fatal. Even doctors miss cardiac injuries when there are no visible signs of chest injury or when they find certain chest injuries but do not run special diagnostic tests to check for heart damage.
If you have suffered a chest injury during a motor vehicle collision, you need the help of an experienced auto accident attorney. Depending on the circumstances in your case, it may be difficult to prove that your injuries were the result of your accident. For instance, undetected cardiac injuries can lead to a heart attack that occurs later. We work with the medical experts who can prove that your heart attack was a result of the chest injuries caused by your accident so that you can get the full compensation you need for your existing and future medical expenses as well as your other damages.
