Delayed pain after a car accident may indicate a serious injury

Many victims of car accidents do not experience pain from their injuries immediately. Unfortunately, delayed pain doesn't mean an injury is minor. If you recently were in a car accident and you only now began to experience pain, you should seek professional medical care immediately. Many injuries that produce delayed pain are quite serious, and in some cases, can even be fatal if left untreated.

Some of the most common types of delayed pain or difficulty arise from head injuries. If you suffered a blow to the head, you may have a mild traumatic brain injury (TBI), which can produce a wide variety of symptoms from difficulty thinking clearly and writing legibly to ongoing headaches and even seizures. Similarly, spine and shoulder injuries from whiplash may not cause pain until days or even weeks after the injury occurs.

If you experience any numbness or tingling, you may have pinched nerves in your spine, which may also indicate a herniated disc. This can lead to many long-term issues if left untreated.

One of the most serious kind of delayed pain occurs in the in the abdomen. If you experience pain in your abdomen, you absolutely must get medical treatment immediately. These symptoms could indicate internal bleeding and organ damage, which is often fatal if left untreated.

If you recently suffered an injury in a car accident, do not hesitate to reach out to an attorney in your area who understands how to fight for your rights and use every available tool to help you recover physically and legally. With proper legal guidance, you can rest assured that your rights remain secure as you get the help you need to address your injuries.
