You drive through Morton Grove almost every day, and nearly every trip is unremarkable and without incident. Until one day it isn’t. You could be driving down the Edens, sitting at a stoplight on Dempster, or taking your child to school when another driver plows into your car and leaves you or your passengers with serious injuries. In an instant, an average day becomes one you will never forget.
In the aftermath of a collision, it can be hard to know what to do next or where to go for help. You have bills to pay while at the same time you remain unable to work as you recover from your injuries. You need medical care and personal support. You may get an offer from the other driver’s insurance company to settle your case, but that offer will inevitably be in a paltry amount far less than you deserve. You don’t have to and shouldn’t go through this challenging time alone. The help you need is only a phone call away.

Car Accident Spotlight: What Is “Whiplash”?
You’ve probably heard the term “whiplash” before. Contrary to what has been portrayed on TV shows for laughs, whiplash can be a serious and debilitating injury, especially when it occurs in a rear-end collision.
Rear-end accidents propel the lead car forward suddenly and without warning. Unprepared for the impact and with torsos restrained by seat belts, the car’s occupants will find their heads suddenly thrust forward and immediately snapped back. Even low-speed crashes can result in severe neck injuries.
One of the important things to know about whiplash and related neck injuries arising from a car accident is that symptoms may not develop for days after the crash. Just because you feel fine after your accident doesn’t mean you weren’t injured and doesn’t mean that you won’t soon experience pain, discomfort, and limitations on your mobility. Common whiplash symptoms include:
- blurred vision
- shoulder, arm, or back pain
- neck pain and stiffness
- decreased range of motion
- burning, prickling, tingling in arms
- sleep disturbance, fatigue, or trouble concentrating
The delayed onset of whiplash and neck injury symptoms is yet another reason to always seek medical attention after an auto accident, even if you don’t think you are hurt. If you do have a potential claim for compensation for your injury, failure to obtain immediate medical care can make it more challenging to receive the compensation you deserve. As an experienced Morton Grove car accident lawyer, I can help you get the care you need and work with you to build the strongest possible case to recover the maximum amount of damages available for your injuries and losses.
