How Long Does it Take For Injuries To Appear?

Have you been involved in a car accident or other type of motor vehicle accident? Are you wondering how long it will take for any injuries you sustained to appear? Injuries in car accidents can vary dramatically as can the time it takes for injuries to appear after an accident. In fender-benders and minor accidents, victims are far less likely to feel significant pain and suffering initially, but in the following days may be seriously bruised and in intense pain. In more serious collisions or those involving multiple vehicles, injuries can be seen and felt immediately. Any delay in the appearance of injuries can often be attributed to the increased adrenaline and other chemicals your body produces when faced with unexpected danger, shock or excitement. There are many cases where these chemicals act as a pain blocker. Some accident victims have sustained serious, even life-threatening injuries that they were completely unaware of until seeking medical attention. In certain scenarios, it is only when the initial shock wears off that pain from impact will begin to be felt.

One of the most important steps you can take following a car accident is to seek medical attention. Any delay in having a doctor check for internal bleeding, a head wound, swelling or any other sign of a severe injury could not only affect your future health but your ability to seek financial compensation for your injuries as well. The next step to take is to hire a skilled personal injury to represent you and assist you in your aggressive pursuit of damages.

Never attempt to negotiate a settlement or accept payment from an insurance company without consulting with an attorney first. Insurance companies are generally quick to offer some type of settlement in the hopes you will accept before you are have the time to determine the true value of your case. As soon as you accept a settlement offer, you will lose the opportunity to recover fair compensation, as you rightfully deserve.
