In general, there are some common types of injuries we see in people who have been the victims of auto collisions.
Your injury may seem minor, or your pain or symptoms may have started a little while after the crash, and you might think your pain will just go away on its own.
Many of the injuries we see after car accidents aren’t immediately apparent after the collision. It may take days for your neck or back to start to hurt, even though the damage was caused by the collision. And if not treated, many types of injuries will just get worse and cause other problems for you.
You could find that something that starts as a twinge in your back becomes a pain that radiates down your arm or leg and affects your range of motion and ability to perform everyday tasks. Or you could find that a chronic headache you thought was just stress actually is a symptom of a brain injury caused by the impact of the collision.
For your own health and well-being, it’s important to see a doctor as soon as you start to experience symptoms. But it’s also important so you can make a claim to get your medical costs paid. Some injuries don’t show up on x-rays, and if you didn’t immediately seek medical attention, insurance companies will dispute your claim even though your pain and suffering are very real.
The kinds of injuries you suffered in the crash will depend upon a variety of factors, including speed, the angle of the crash, the weight of the vehicles. Different kinds of crashes tend to be more likely to cause certain kinds of injuries.
