It is common to experience some level of pain following a car crash. When injuries are bad enough, pain may linger for months, years or even for the rest of one’s life. Following motor vehicle accidents, many Louisiana residents may experience musculoskeletal pain — the symptoms of which will vary based on the severity of a person’s injury.
Musculoskeletal pain is the pain felt due to damage done to muscles, tendons, bones and ligaments. In a car crash, one may experience broken bones, overstretched ligaments, torn muscles and tendons and a number of other injuries that will cause musculoskeletal pain. The symptoms of this type of pain include:
- Sleep disturbances
For some individuals, treatment and time are needed to heal this pain — and it is possible to completely recover. For others, though, the pain may never fully go away, even with medical care. Common treatments for musculoskeletal pain include massage, medication, physical therapy and relaxation techniques — among various others. All of these can come at a cost and there are no guarantees of a full recovery.
Living life filled with musculoskeletal pain following motor vehicle accidents can have an extremely negative effect on oneself, one’s work and one’s family. There will be physical, psychological and financial damages from which it may be difficult to recover. Thankfully, Louisiana residents who have experienced injuries that caused this type of pain and these losses may be entitled to seek compensation. Personal injury claims that are managed successfully can result in the awarding of maximum relief.
