When someone has been in a car crash, there are a number of concerns that automatically come to mind. Recovering from physical injuries and the consequences of taking time off work are common. But what about the lesser-known implications of auto collisions? It’s important to think about all the possible consequences so you can be prepped if or when they pop up. Let’s take a look at the implications that don’t automatically come to mind.
The Possibility of Delayed Medical Symptoms and Injuries
While many physical injuries are visible immediately following a wreck, there are some that could take days, weeks, or even months to appear. The most comm types of pain that are delayed after a car accident include headaches, neck pain, back pain, numbness or tingling, and abdominal pain. It’s important to seek medical attention right after a crash so you can be evaluated for injuries you might not see.
