Many people do not realize just how seriously their lives are affected by car accidents until many weeks, months or even years have passed. While they may have been initially worried about the costs of car repairs and hospital visits, they soon realize that the true impact of an automobile injury can be much more long-lasting.
If you have been injured in a car accident, you may have experienced harm you haven’t even considered. For example, a broken arm may heal, but that arm will be more susceptible to breaking in the future. It may be weaker, and develop arthritis in old age.
A DELAYED ONSET OF PAIN FOLLOWING A CAR ACCIDENT IS COMMON
Directly following an automobile accident, if injuries are not immediately apparent, many people who have sustained internal injuries do not notice any symptoms. This delay may be caused by adrenaline or the shock of being involved in a traumatic situation.
As time passes, the symptoms associated with the injury sustained in the collision become evident. If the individual neglected to go to the hospital following the accident, this delay in seeking treatment can negatively affect his or her ability to attain compensation from the automobile insurance company. For this reason, once symptoms begin, it is vital that the he or she seek medical care immediately.
