Boston Attorney Discusses Chronic Pain After Car Accidents, Boston, Massachusetts

Every year, anywhere between 20 and 50 million people are injured in car accidents. The incidents range from simple fender-benders to serious, near-catastrophic collisions, often resulting in significant damages. Dealing with chronic pain after such an event can be a challenge, so it’s helpful to learn more about the condition. Below, the attorneys at Bellotti Law Group, PC, in Boston, MA, discuss some important facts to know about the topic.

Soft Tissue Injuries

car accidentSoft tissue injuries are one of the most common sources of post-accident pain, including muscle sprains and strains, bruises and contusions, and torn or stretched ligaments. Any of these issues can cause long-lasting discomfort and require treatments like physical therapy and doctor-administered pain management protocols. When you incur a soft tissue injury from a car accident, an insurer will sometimes try to deny coverage. They may deem the damages insignificant or think you are over-treating it.

Serious Injuries

More serious problems, like broken bones, spinal cord and traumatic brain injuries, and paralysis, can also stem from a car accident. Such issues often require surgical intervention and long-term recoveries and may impact an accident victim's ability to work and support themselves. An insurance company may try to reject a claimant's request for coverage, which makes an already stressful situation more challenging.

Pain & Suffering

Emotional pain can be chronic too. If you've experienced emotional distress and suffering because of a car accident, you may be able to get compensation. Even if an insurer has denied a claim for mental health care, you may be able to challenge the denial and get the necessary support to improve your quality of life.

If you've endured any of the painful injuries described above, seek help from a seasoned car accident lawyer. The team at the Bellotti Law Group, PC, offers quality legal counsel and representation through every step of the process to secure maximum compensation for your losses.
