Does Whiplash Go Away on Its Own?

Published on Apr 3, 2018 at 4:05 pm in Car Accidents.

If you’ve been injured in a car wreck, one of the injuries you might be most worried about is whiplash. Whiplash is one of the most common injuries experienced after being involved in a car accident and is caused by the force of your vehicle suddenly stopping/crashing as the accident occurs. The sudden force causes your head and neck to jerk backwards/forwards in the direction of the vehicle’s momentum. These sudden jerks can cause a surprising amount of damage to the neck, back, and spine.

Whiplash is a complex injury to treat because it may appear in a somewhat delayed manner. After being in a wreck, you may feel fine initially, but as the muscles, tendons, nerves, and fragile discs in your neck begin to settle, you may find that whiplash symptoms become more severe. Whiplash can begin to show symptoms immediately after an accident or hours or even days after the event.

The Dangers of Nursing Home Resident Elopement

Published on Mar 23, 2018 at 11:30 am in Nursing Home Abuse.

Placing your loved one in a nursing home means you’re trusting the home to take care of them and keep them safe. No one ever wants to hear that the nursing home has lost their loved one. But this can happen, especially in homes that don’t have enough staff to keep an eye on their residents or don’t have effective preventative safety measures to make sure residents don’t leave.

When a resident leaves their nursing home, it’s called elopement. There’s an increase in risk of injury or death and can be traumatizing for your loved one and you. This should never happen and you shouldn’t have to wonder if your loved one is safe. If you’ve ever had a loved one elope from their nursing home, you can explore legal options. An Atlanta nursing home elopement lawyer from Bey & Associates can help you get justice for your loved one.
