Delayed Injuries As a Result of a Car Accident
Just like everything else, car accidents in the East Valley come in all different shapes and sizes, from larger multiple car pileups in on the US 60 to small rear-end crashes on Baseline and Higley. It’s not uncommon to see a couple per day just on your regular route to work and home. It’s important to note that regardless of the size of the crash or severity of the car accident that you’ve seen or have been in, that they are all serious!
Just about any car accident can be considered a traumatic event. Catastrophic collision or fender-bender, there is a lot of force involved when a vehicle hits or is hit by another car or truck. Many times, when people are in a car accident that may seem minor, they won’t notice any injury symptoms right away. There are a lot of reasons for this, and we hope that this article will bring you some insights to be aware of in case you’re ever injured or involved in an accident. Again, all accidents are serious, and it’s important for many reasons to understand how to monitor your injuries following a car accident – both for your physical health and well-being and to protect your legal rights.
Injuries Sustained From A Car Accident Are not Always Obvious.
Major injuries like broken bones, lacerations and bruising are typically pretty easy to notice immediately after an accident, that is, if you’re not unconscious. . .
However, there are multiple other injuries such as whiplash, pulled or torn muscles that are not always immediately apparent following a car accident.
The chaos and adrenaline that comes with an accident of any size can often times, be hindrance in noticing these injuries. It can take hours or even a few days to begin feeling the symptoms of whiplash. Dizziness, headaches, soreness, and or pain in the upper back and neck can sneak up on you. This is one of the reasons why it’s so important to take your time in handling your car accident claim. See a doctor, relax and rest and visit with a local attorney in Mesa (like us). Give it some time and make sure you understand what’s happening in your body and what’s happening with your medical bills and insurance coverage.
Ignoring an injury, even minor injuries can lead to long-term pain. We always recommend that you see a doctor immediately following an accident. Just get a check-up, so that they can properly diagnose your injuries.
