Is it a head injury or a spinal cord injury or something else?

The funny thing about car accidents is that you can't predict the injuries you could suffer. In fact, you can't predict the injuries that each person in the car will suffer. One of you could break a leg while another hits his or her head. Yet you could suffer a spinal cord injury or a traumatic brain injury while another passenger walks away with just a case of the shakes.

What makes matters worse is that some injuries aren't always evident in the immediate aftermath of a crash. It could take days before the symptoms of a serious injury manifest. That's why it's recommended that you see a doctor as soon as possible after an accident.

Finding out what's wrong

If you suffer from any of the symptoms listed below, you may want to make sure that you see a neurologist:

  • Migraines
  • Numbness in any of your extremities
  • Weakness in any of your extremities
  • Headaches
  • Tingling in any of your extremities

You may think these symptoms are minor, but they could allude to a much more serious injury. Moreover, what may seem minor today could turn into excruciating pain tomorrow or the next day. By the time your pain is at your peak tolerance level, you probably need immediate medical attention and your condition could threaten your life.

You may not realize this, but a neurologist deals with more than just head wounds. This type of doctor deals with any injury to your nervous system, which could include your spine, head or some other body part. The above symptoms could indicate a need for a neurologist, especially if the symptoms only continue to worsen. Another reason to seek out the help of a specialist is because the treatments for neurological injuries vary, and the right doctor can tailor your treatment to your medical needs.

Finding out how to pay for a specialist

You may hesitate to consult with a specialist such as a neurologist due to the costs associated with their care. If the accident that caused your injuries resulted from the negligent actions of one or more drivers, you may pursue compensation for your injuries that could cover the cost of your treatment now and in the future. Being a passenger in a vehicle involved in an accident could provide you with more than one avenue of recovery.
