Many Car Accident Injuries Take Time to Show Symptoms

While many injuries commonly associated with car accidents are apparent right away, some take time to develop. This can make it difficult for an injury victim to receive just compensation, especially if their injuries do not begin to show symptoms for days or weeks after a crash.

The reason why this happens is because the body often experiences a rush of adrenaline immediately after a car accident. This chemical can make it difficult for you to feel pain, altering your perception of soft tissue damage or even a concussion. To that end, you should seek medical attention after a crash, even if you don’t believe your injuries are serious in nature.

Soft tissue injuries

One of the most common soft tissue injuries is “whiplash,” which happens when the head gets thrown aggressively backward or forward. It’s a common scenario for injury victims involved in rear-end car accidents.

In addition to neck pain, whiplash may cause headaches, dizziness, nausea and numbness in the affected areas. Muscle spasms and a limited range of motion are other common symptoms.

Concussions and head injuries

A concussion, which occurs when the brain hits up against the skull, is another type of injury that might not be apparent right away. In fact, it may require friends or family members to notice a change in your behavior before you realize anything is wrong at all. Common symptoms of concussions include chronic headaches, nausea, vomiting, mood swings, confusion and lethargy, among many others.

Injuries sustained in a car wreck may result in long-term conditions that leave you unable to work or enjoy activities you once loved. To learn more about your legal options in the aftermath of a serious crash, meet with a skilled Sarasota County auto accident lawyer at Shapiro, Goldman, Babbonni & Walsh.
