It can take a while for some car accident injuries to show up

Did you know that immediately after a car accident, you may be in shock and your body will produce endorphins and adrenaline, which can mask pain and injuries? You may hurt more on the day after the accident and you may have many more symptoms of underlying injuries.

One of the most common injuries you may have after a car accident is a concussion, which is a brain injury in which the brain slams against the skull. This type of injury can have delayed symptoms and over the next few days after an accident the following may occur:

  • headaches
  • dizziness
  • blurred vision
  • tinnitus
  • vomiting (usually from disorientation)
  • confusion, memory problems
  • problems reasoning or concentrating
  • depression and or anxiety
  • irritability
  • fatigue
  • inability to sleep

Whiplash is also a common injury in an automobile accident. While it is most identified as a neck injury, the pain can seemingly travel down the spine and cause further complications and pain down the line. Symptoms of whiplash are:

  • limited range of motion
  • stiffness in upper body
  • headaches and migraines
  • nausea
  • muscle spasms and twitching of eyes
  • slow response time and slow reflexes
  • numbness
  • weakness

You may be asking, what do I need to do when I am experiencing additional pain after a car accident? Your first course of action is to seek out an experienced auto accident attorney that will give you a free consultation. They will evaluate your case and explain to you how they can help. Your medical records will be reviewed and the scene of the accident will be investigated. The lawyer should also work on a contingency basis, which means you don’t pay if they don’t win your case.
