If my injury is only minor, do I have a claim worth pursuing?
People sometimes think that because they have suffered what they consider to be a minor injury, such as a whiplash or jarring injury in an accident, which seems to improve in the weeks or months following the accident, that it is not worthwhile making a claim. Unfortunately, what often appears to be a minor injury following an accident, can end up being quite a debilitating injury over time.
