Car accidents often cause delayed-onset injuries

Biologically speaking, our human bodies are still very poorly equipped to survive serious body trauma. Unfortunately for many drivers and passengers, car accidents are much more violent experiences than they may realize at the moment. Even when modern safety features are present in a vehicle and the passengers are using them correctly, serious injury is possible in nearly any kind of car accident.

Unfortunately for many car accident victims who think they might get away from the accident without serious injury, delayed onset injuries do not cause pain until hours or even days after the crash occurs. If you begin feeling any kind of unusual pain or discomfort after a car accident, do not hesitate to seek professional medical care.

If you do seek medical care and find that you suffered delayed pain injuries, consider consulting with an experienced attorney to understand your rights and create an effective strategy for pursuing fair compensation for your medical costs and other expenses or losses. The process of recovering from delayed onset injuries may take time, so it is important that you prioritize recovery as soon as possible.

Address any abdominal pain immediately

If you suffer a blow to the head or herniate a disc in your spinal cord, you may experience delayed onset injuries that take time and resources to fully overcome. Unfortunately, not all delayed onset injuries are equally dangerous. Abdominal pain often indicates internal bleeding or damage to organs.

Either of these injuries, if left untreated, can kill a person in a matter of minutes or hours rather than days. You should not wait until you find a convenient time to seek medical care if you experience abdominal pain after an accident. If you do, you may not live to regret it.

Other delayed onset injuries you may suffer

If you do not suffer internal organ injuries, count yourself lucky. Still, you're not out of the woods yet. You may have a mild traumatic brain injury or a pinched nerve that causes sharp or radiating pain throughout your body.

You may also experience injuries to your musculature, practically immobilizing you.

These injuries may cause lasting damage or create ongoing pain if you do not address them properly as soon as you can.
