Delayed symptoms after an accident? You have options.

A Pennsylvania car accident can change your life in many ways, leaving you with injuries that will impact your life for years to come. However, many car accident victims find that they do not really understand the extent of their injuries until days or weeks after the incident. If you experienced delayed pain after an accident, you still have the right to pursue compensation for your losses.

Delayed symptoms do not mean that you are free from serious injury. In fact, your injury can be quite significant, even if you do not understand the gravity of the situation right away. If you were hurt in a car accident but experienced delayed symptoms, you may find it helpful to seek guidance regarding your options for a possible personal injury claim.

Delayed pain can indicate serious problems

If you are experiencing serious pain that did not show up immediately following your accident, it is most important to seek appropriate medical attention as soon as possible. Some common types of delayed pain you may experience after an accident include the following:

  • Neck pain: Neck pain can indicate underlying issues that can cause serious problems, including whiplash. Pain in both the shoulder and neck area can indicate an injury to a disk.
  • Headaches: This can be a symptom of various types of head and brain injuries, including concussion. It could also indicate blood clots, neck injuries and whiplash.
  • Abdominal pain: Abdominal pain can indicate the presence of soft tissue injuries that may be quite serious. This can be a sign of internal bleeding or other problems.

By seeking immediate medical attention at the onset of any symptoms, you can understand your options and seek the compensation you deserve after an accident. You still have the right to seek a full and fair recovery, even if you were unaware of how badly you were hurt in the immediate aftermath of your accident.

Don’t further delay your recovery

Victims of the negligent or reckless actions of another driver have options. If you experienced delayed symptoms, you will find it beneficial to seek guidance as soon as you are aware of the existence of an injury. This will help you build a personal injury case in a timely manner and help you claim the recovery you deserve. Accident claims are complex, but you have the right to know your options and move forward with any legal action that is necessary.
