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.
Immediate and follow-up medical evaluations are vital for motor vehicle collision victims. People who find themselves in a traffic collision should see a physician and inform him or her of any pain, discomfort and unusual symptoms, no matter how minor they might seem, to receive treatment for any potential injuries.
