Constant Pain

If you experience getting a headache after a car accident it is generally called a post-traumatic headache. More often than not it is caused by the trauma of being involved in the collision and may not necessarily be a physical matter. But even with the mental effect of the collision not having a physical manifestation pain can be constant and debilitating which negates the idea that it is not a physical problem. 

We have handled some accidents and have seen how some accident victims are affected by post-traumatic headaches. If you get into an accident and you experience this effect there are steps that you need to immediately take to protect yourself.

What should I do if I have a constant headache after a collision in Michigan?

There are instances when after a car accident you think that you are ok so you just continue handling the insurance matters and telling the first responders that you somehow feel the same. Hours later or even a few days later you would feel a headache that is constant and debilitating because of the drama of what happened.

This is why we always tell our clients but in case you get into a collision in Michigan the first thing that you tell your first responders would be the physical trauma that you were in but you also never downplay the mental and emotional trauma. Keep in mind that you have just been in an accident, you are not as okay as you would want to be. 

There are other things that you might do that might cause you your claims. You may read the article Common Mistakes To Avoid in A Car Crash, to find out more about these mistakes.

The Steps To Take

After feeling the constant headache you need to get on it and make sure that you do the following steps to get compensated.

Seek Medical Attention

As soon as you feel a headache you should seek medical attention. You should get examined by the doctor immediately and get your headache diagnosed and documented. The sooner that you are taken care of by the doctor the better it would be for you in the future not just in terms of getting the headache away but in terms of your entitlement to compensation as well.

Do not downplay your injury

We always hope that a headache is just a headache. Saying things that it is normal for someone to get a headache after a collision because of the drama is downplaying not just the mental manifestation of the headache but the physical manifestation of it. Even if you think that you can just take Tylenol or paracetamol for you to get better you should seek medical help and never try to self-diagnose. Remember that you have just been in a car accident and that you are entitled to be compensated for it.

Talk to your lawyer

After seeking medical attention and knowing that it is a serious matter the next thing that you should do is contact your lawyer and get the best kind of assistance. Here at Haque Legal, we do not just want you to get better, we want you to get compensated for the damages that the accident has caused you.

Get Your Lawyer Working

Document Everything

Make sure that you get all of the documentation related to your headache and that you get a copy for yourself. There are some instances when you and your lawyer may not agree on certain things and you may need to get a new one. This has never happened in Haque Legal but we have handled cases where new clients come in while in the middle of the court proceedings.
