Some car accident injuries aren’t obvious

If you recently experienced a car accident, you may have serious injuries you don't yet know about. In many cases, the pain associated with an injury does not begin appearing until days or even weeks after the accident itself occurs.

If you have not received professional medical care since your accident occurred, don't wait any longer to get examined by a medical professional. Even if you can't yet feel pain, there are some serious injuries that can produce long-term damage to your body or turn fatal.

If you recently began to feel pain days or weeks after your accident, you should also consult with a medical professional as soon and possible. The sooner you get proper medical care, the sooner you can pursue proper treatment and any fair compensation you may deserve.

Car accidents produce many kinds of delayed-pain injuries

Car accidents are a very violent experience, much more so than many people realize, possibly because we spend so much time in cars in general. Still, car accidents present blows to your body similar to suffering a severe beating.

If your delayed pain expresses itself as headaches or nausea, or even seizures, you may have a mild traumatic brain injury. Even relatively slight brain injuries can create serious problems, and require treatment immediately.

Similarly, headaches could indicate that your spine suffered some damage in the accident, or that a some nerves suffered damage.

If you suffered whiplash, which is a broad term that covers a number of issues, you may have shoulder, neck or even lower back pain.

Sometimes car accidents cause a disc in your spine to slip out of place, which can crimp or pinch the nerves inside your spinal cord. Pinched nerves regularly produce pain, but can also produce numbness and tingling, especially in your extremities.

One of the most dangerous types of delayed pain is any pain you experience in your abdomen. Abdomen pain often indicates that you have internal bleeding and possibly serious organ damage. Untreated internal bleeding or organ damage can turn fatal fairly quickly if left untreated.

Don't wait to get proper help

Whatever your injuries, there is no reason to put off getting the help that you need. First, before anything else, make sure you get the medical care you need to ensure your immediate safety. Once you receive proper medical care, don't hesitate to reach out to an experienced attorney in White Plains who understands how to protect your rights and fight for any compensation you deserve.
