Why it is important to get checked out immediately after a crash

You were in a minor rear-end crash recently. Fortunately, the damage to your vehicle was minimal, and you and the other party exchanged contact information and squared things up with your respective insurance companies. However, now it is a few days later and you are starting to feel sore. You turned down treatment after the accident, but now you are starting to have second thoughts. Should you have seen a doctor after all? You are not alone in asking this question. Many Pennsylvania residents believe they are fine after a fender-bender only to find themselves increasingly sore in the days and weeks that follow.

You might be suffering from whiplash, a common injury that occurs after minor accidents, especially rear-end collisions. Many people downplay the potential severity of whiplash, accepting that it is an inevitable and manageable injury most people suffer at least once in their lives.

What should you do after a dog bite?

As an animal lover, one of the last things you would expect from your beloved four-legged companion is getting bitten. Unfortunately, millions of people in Pennsylvania and across the country are bitten by dogs each year. Most bites are from dogs people know and trust.

You might find it concerning that out of the roughly 4.7 million annual dog bites in America, half occur to young children. Senior citizens and door-to-door workers are also highly susceptible to an unprovoked dog attack. One out of every five dog bites is severe enough to require a visit to the emergency room, reports the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
