You still feel fine a few days after your recent car accident. That means that you do not have to worry about getting medical attention or making a health or auto insurance claim, right?
Metro Healthcare Partners explains delayed injury symptoms that you may suffer after a car accident. Do not miss your chance to receive fair compensation for your recovery.
Become mindful of any tingling, back pain, discomfort and numbness in your back. Such symptoms could point to a herniated disc, soft tissue injury, spinal injury or whiplash. Have a physician look you over to determine whether to ask your insurance carrier to intervene.
Do not dismiss any headaches you experience in the coming days. You may have a blood clot or neck or head injury that requires a medical professional examination. Headaches may also indicate a traumatic brain injury, which requires medical attention.
Shoulder and neck pain
With adrenaline flooding your body during an auto accident, you may not immediately notice how much force your neck and shoulders absorb. Do your shoulders or neck feel stiff? If so, you may have a spinal injury or whiplash.
Depending on the severity of the collision, you could experience internal bleeding. Check in with yourself to see if you notice dizziness, bruising, pain in your abdominal area or fainting, which are all signs of internal bleeding. Have your doctor diagnose and treat you, as internal bleeding may prove fatal if it goes unaddressed.
Any hurt you feel in the days and weeks following your accident may signify a delayed injury symptom. For peace of mind and protection of your health, do not hesitate to see a medical professional.
