What to do when auto accident injuries arise after the fact

When you experience an auto accident, it is a great relief to shake off the surprise of the incident and find that you did not suffer any serious injuries. Modern vehicles often include sophisticated safety features that make it much safer for drivers and passengers to go through a car accident, but many injuries can still occur without victims recognizing them.

It is common for accident victims to begin feeling pain from a car accident injury several days after the initial impact, which is often frightening and confusing. These are known as delayed pain injuries. If you believe that you have delayed pain injuries from a recent car accident, you can take steps to protect yourself and your rights.

Delayed pain injuries come in many forms

Victims of auto accidents may suffer from a wide range of delayed pain injuries. Some are painful, but temporary, while others may cause long-term harm and suffering. Delayed pain injuries include:

  • Soft-tissue damage, also known as whiplash
  • Brain injuries from a blow to the head
  • Injuries to a victim's spinal column
  • Nerve damage
  • Internal bleeding
  • Partial organ damage

The most effective way to identify and treat hidden injuries is to seek a full medical examination as soon as possible after an auto accident. Often, if a person waits until they feel pain to seek treatment, the injury has already grown worse and potentially more dangerous.

Getting the help that you need

If you have not received a full medical examination since your auto accident, now is the time to do so. The longer you wait, the more difficult it is to treat some of these injuries, and your recovery may be more painful.

Waiting to identify your injuries after an auto accident can also make filing a claim more complicated. The sooner that you establish official medical documentation around your injuries, the simpler it is to build a strong personal injury claim pursuing full compensation for your medical expenses and other losses.

A strong personal injury claim can take time to build, so it is wise to begin this process immediately. With proper legal resources and guidance, you can build your claim and seek the compensation you deserve, while still focusing on your own physical and practical recovery. Begin your road to recovery with a professional medical examination to protect your physical safety and keep your rights secure.
