Delayed injuries after an accident

InjuriesThe entire process of being in a car accident is terrifying and intimidating. Trying to understand what happened and what to do next can seem overwhelming.

Some injuries are more obvious than others, and some take time to develop fully. Whether you can walk away from the accident or you need treatment right away, you may not know all the injuries until days after the crash.

These are some of the signs that you might have a delayed injury from your car accident.

Head and neck pain

Head and neck pain can be easy to brush off, but it could be a symptom of something more severe. Even if your pain starts as mild, it can still mean something serious is developing, including:

  • Whiplash
  • Concussion
  • Brain injury
  • Neck injury

While it is common to have pain after a car accident, it is still critical to see a physician to determine if you need further treatment.

Emotional symptoms

Everyone responds to car accidents differently. Some people panic at the scene and take a long time to calm down; others do not feel the full emotional impact until they have a chance to process what happened.

You may not notice changes in your behavior, but your loved ones will. If left untreated, emotional trauma can lead to severe physical symptoms as well. If a friend or family member mentions that you seem different after the accident, it may be time to talk to a professional about what happened.

Seek medical attention as soon as you notice symptoms that could be related to your car accident. While it may seem like it has been "too long," there are many physical and emotional injuries that you may not notice until after the crash.
