What are common delayed injuries that occur in car accidents?

When people think about a car accident, one of the first things that might come to mind is the damage to the vehicle. No one can judge the severity of an accident victim's injuries from looking at the wreckage, and injuries are very common in motor vehicle collisions. Besides those that are immediately noticeable, it is not unusual for accident victims to have emotional and mental trauma. Some motor vehicle victims are aware of their injuries right away. Other individuals are not, and may not show signs of trauma or experience symptoms until days later. 

Not everyone can walk away from a crash without noticeable signs of trauma. What someone does after being in a car accident can mean the difference between life and death. Here are some common delayed accident symptoms that could indicate immediate medical attention is necessary. 

  • Headaches are a common symptom that accident victims might experience for several weeks after their ordeals. These could resolve on their own, but it is important to see a doctor so he or she can rule out concussions, blood clots, hemorrhaging, whiplash and traumatic brain injuries. 
  • Numbness, pain and tingling may occur with tenderness and soreness in the neck, head, back, arms, hands and legs, and these should never be ignored. These symptoms often occur when there is trauma to the spinal cord, such as whiplash, herniated disk, pinched nerve and damaged muscles and ligaments. Early detection is crucial for a better outcome. 
  • Changes in personality, sleep and eating habits, flashbacks, impaired thinking, poor memory recollection and moodiness are symptoms that often occur in individuals who have post-traumatic stress disorder and concussions.
