The damages caused by car accidents can go beyond just whiplash injuries.

Whiplash Injuries
Whiplash injuries are caused by strong and sudden force to the head and neck. For a whiplash injury to occur, the had must be violently forced forward and backward. This extreme force puts a tremendous amount of stress on the already sensitive cervical spine, and can in some cases result in more permanent nerve damage. While whiplash injuries occur more often from auto accidents, they can also arise after truck accidents, slip and fall accidents, bungee jumping, motorcycle accidents, sports accidents, rollercoasters, or any other accident that causes the head and neck significant and sudden stress. Symptoms of whiplash tend to arise as stiffness in the neck, a reduced range of motion in the neck, neck instability, shoulder pain, upper back pain, and headaches. There is also a chronic pain that arises with most whiplash injuries. This pain can range from a mild ache to an excruciating pins-and-needles pain. While it is always recommended that you see a doctor after a violent car accident, you can often treat whiplash at home with some of the following remedies:

  • Ice the neck: To reduce pain and swelling, ice the neck as soon as you can after the injury. It is recommended that you ice the neck for 15 minutes every 3-4 hours for 2-3 days. You should also wrap the ice in a thin towel or cloth as to prevent direct contact with the skin.
  • Painkilling medication: In some cases, a doctor or physician will recommend non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, like ibuprofen, or naproxen. These drugs can help with pain and swelling. However, they may have side effects. For this reason, it is incredibly important that you consult a doctor or trained medical professional to get a full gauge on what you can and can take for your whiplash injury pains.
  • Neck brace or collar: A doctor may recommend that you use a neck brace or collar. This is to stabilize the neck so that it can properly heal.
  • Apply moist heat to the neck: A doctor may also recommend that you apply heat to the neck after the initial swelling has gone down. You can use warm, wet towels, or take a warm bath. However, it is important to note that this should only be done after 2-3 days of icing the pained area.

As mentioned prior, most whiplash injuries can be treated at home. However, there are some instances where the damages from a whiplash injury are so severe that more experienced medical attention is needed. In some cases, advanced painkiller medication may be needed, and in other cases, victims may have to visit a physical therapist to regain full motion in the neck. These medical visits place a heavy financial burden on car accident victims. For this reason, Fred Loya policyholders are usually always curious about how much they can receive for their whiplash injury Fred Loya insurance settlements. An accomplished lawyer experienced in Fred Loya Insurance cases can help give you an estimate.

How Much Does Fred Loya Insurance Pay For A Whiplash Injury After A Car Accident?
When clients with whiplash injury cases come into our law firm seeking representation for their Fred Loya whiplash injury claim, they often ask our attorneys a wide variety of questions regarding average compensation values. These questions range from queries about average Fred Loya Insurance settlements and settlement calculators to questions regarding how long it takes to receive a settlement from Fred Loya. While most of these questions can be answered in detail by an expert attorney who has experience in Fred Loya Insurance cases, there are some basic things to understand when moving forward with seeking assistance for your whiplash injury claim.

For starters, how much you can receive for your Fred Loya injury settlement depends on the damages that you endured. For example, a policyholder who received severe whiplash injuries and property damage after a truck accident is almost always going to receive a higher settlement than someone who received minor whiplash injuries after a low impact rear-end collision. This is why finding an average settlement amount can be somewhat challenging. While our attorneys could calculate a potential average, there is no guarantee that this average would apply to your case as there is a wide range of variances involved in calculating the value of each case. This is also a reason why having a settlement calculator would do our clients a disservice. While we could reach estimates, and develop a settlement calculator, there is no universal value for damages, and as such any solution you reached through a settlement calculator wouldn’t be accurate.

Questions regarding how long it takes to receive a settlement amount are, fortunately, more concrete. There are state laws that dictate how long an insurance company has to comply and fulfill claims to their policyholders. For instance, California State law states that the insurance company must acknowledge receipt of all claims within 15 days of them being filed. The insurance company must then either accept or deny the claim within 40 days after receiving proof of the claim. If the insurance company accepts the claim, the claim must then be paid out within 30 days from the date the settlement was reached.

How much Fred Loya insurance may offer, you also depend on the kind of insurance plan you own. For instance, victims of a truck accident aren’t always going to receive adequate compensation for their damages if they only have bicycle accident insurance. For this reason, it is important to be clear about what kind of insurance product you’ve purchased through Fred Loya. If you have the right insurance plan, your damages qualify under this plan, and the Fred Loya insurance claims adjuster fails to provide suitable compensation for your damages you can file a lawsuit against the insurance company. However, when taking on large insurance companies like Fred Loya, it is always in your best interest to seek the assistance of a skilled attorney with a wealth of experience in taking on insurance claims adjusters and large insurance companies. Having qualified attorney on your side can mean the difference between a fulfilling claim for compensation and having your case denied by an insurance claim adjuster.
