After a car crash, you may be able to walk around and feel little more than “tightness.” But, the next 2 days, you may be unable to even get out of bed!
No one is more surprised than you. Of course, the drunk driver who is liable for that crash, will recall how you were “fine at the scene.” The investigating police officer will also agree you seemed “completely unhurt” and were only worried about your car.
You didn’t think you’d miss work. Even your spouse thought you were fine last night. But everything hurts. There are seven (7) hidden injuries we see appear days following violent car crashes:
Hidden Car Accident Injury #1
Hidden Car Accident Injury #2
Hidden Car Accident Injury #3
Right foot pain
Hidden Car Accident Injury #4
Hidden Car Accident Injury #5
Hidden Car Accident Injury #6
Hidden Car Accident Injury #7
By far the most common symptom of impacts, it can be long-lasting. Each vertebrae and disc constitute a joint, all of which can shift in an impact. Ruptured discs are sometimes the unfortunate result.
In general, getting medical care and proper diagnostic testing in the first week after an impact has no downsides. But trying to tough it out for months and then finally giving in and seeking treatment will likely result in a much worse situation for you all around. When in doubt, seek medical care.
