Some car accident injuries may not show up right away

Many people in the Cary area will be in a car accident at least once in their life. These accidents are usually minor fender benders, but some can be more serious. When there is an accident with injuries a person may be stressed about their injuries along with the medical expenses they may now be facing. But, it is important for those who are in a car accident to understand that some car accident injuries may not show up until later.

When a person is in a car accident, they may think that their injuries will be apparent right away. But, there are several symptoms that a person may have some time after a car accident occurs. One symptom a car accident victim should not ignore is a headache. A headache could be a sign of whiplash, a concussion, a head injury or other condition. Whiplash can also show up several days later with symptoms of neck and shoulder pain. Neck pain can also be a sign of herniated disks.

A car accident victim may also ignore abdominal pain, but that can be a sign of internal bleeding. Internal bleeding can be life-threatening if not treated early. A person may also experience back pain, which is also a sign of whiplash, sprains and damage to ligaments or vertebrae. In addition to a herniated disc, a car accident victim may experience tingling or numbness in their limbs, which could be a sign that the herniated disc is pressing on spinal nerves.

If a person has been involved in a car accident due to no fault of their own, they may want to get more information about personal injury legal options. Doing so may help a victim determine the cause the accident and who is at fault. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, pain and suffering, future medical expenses and other damages.
