Delayed Car Accident Injury Symptoms to Take Seriously
Not all injuries from car accidents will appear right away. Sometimes, car accident victims who initially felt fine will develop symptoms after days or weeks have passed. Victims might be tempted to brush these off, but all symptoms should be taken seriously and reviewed by a medical professional.
Any time you are involved in a car accident, it is wise to see a doctor. Even if you do not feel like you are injured, your doctor might discover something that needs attention. Your body can also be filled with adrenaline after the crash, which can mask some of your injuries immediately following the accident.
After a full checkup, however, you might still develop some unusual symptoms that you will want to have addressed. Some of these symptoms can include:
Abdominal or stomach pain – While pain in your stomach or abdomen might not be apparent right after an accident, it is not something to ignore. Abdominal pain can be a sign of internal injury, broken bones, internal bleeding, or soft-tissue injury.
Dizziness or headaches – Headaches and dizziness can indicate that you have experienced a very serious injury. Unfortunately, they are also symptoms that most people experience in everyday life. Due to a delay in time from the car accident, you might think they are associated with stress, diet, or the beginning of the flu. However, any experiences of dizziness and headache should be evaluated when you have been in a car crash, as these could be signs of a concussion, brain injury, or even trauma to the neck.
Back or neck pain – Back or neck pain after a vehicle crash can mean injuries like herniated discs, muscle spasms, sprains or spinal injury. Neck or back pain should never be ignored.
