A car accident can cause tendonitis. It is relatively rare, but it does happen. During a crash, the arms can be put under immense pressure. Initially, the affected area will swell and appear to be inflamed. If this happens to you, immediately seek medical injury. Unfortunately, it can take months for this condition to clear up. You can potentially include tendonitis in any personal injury claim you make.
Whether every car accident has to be reported depends on what country, state, or province you are driving in. The rules vary. In Ontario, if the combined damage does not exceed $2,000 you are not required to file a police accident report or call them to the scene. However, if someone is injured you would need to call the police. Even if the damage to the vehicles involved was very minor.
How long a car accident settlement takes depends on how complex the case is and how willing the other party is to settle. If your case is a simple one, you may receive your payout in less than a year. But it is also possible for a settlement to take a couple of years. Longer if your case has to go to court. Hiring an experienced lawyer can help to speed up the process.
Only an experienced personal injury lawyer has the legal knowledge and skills to be capable of protecting your rights to compensation by knowing how to present evidence to prove fault on the part of the other party.
