If you are involved in an auto accident, your health and safety should always come first. If injuries are reported at the scene, EMT's will be called to the accident scene to will make an initial medical assessment and provide the initial medical treatment. If your injuries are serious or catastrophic injuries you will be transported to the emergency room at a hospital.
In some cases, your adrenaline may be flowing and you may not realize that you are injured, and in some cases, the effects of injuries may not be known for hours, days, or even a week or so.
Even if you do not feel injured at first, it may still be a good idea to at least get checked out.
Some injuries or conditions that often start showing up hours, days, or even a week or so after an auto accident include:
- Muscle soreness;
- Diminished range of motion;
- Sharpe pain or numbness;
- A series of frequent or intense headaches;
- Problems focusing or concentrating;
- Blurred vision or light sensitivity;
- Difficulty walking, sitting, or getting out of a chair or bed;
- Swelling or discolored skin;
- Hearing problems or constant ringing in your ears;
- Sudden blood in your bowel movements;
- Or other unusual ailments that have only begun since the auto accident.
Seeking medical treatment after an auto accident, no matter how insignificant it may seem at the time may actually save your life.
Additionally, if you continue to have pain, discomfort or experience any physical ailments, make sure you schedule regular check-ups with your doctor. Insurance companies will often try to use the fact that you never did any follow-up medical appointments after your car accident to say that your injuries were not serious or you were simply not that hurt at all.
It may always be wise to ensure your road to recovery is documented all the way through your recovery.
