Car Accident? Here’s What to Expect:
It’s something we all hope to never experience, but it may be an unfortunate reality for some.
Accidents can be frightening, nerve-racking, and confusing. Especially if it’s your first accident, you may experience a fair amount of panic. In the aftermath, you’ll likely find yourself wondering, ‘what comes next?’
Well, unfortunately, the emotional rollercoaster of a crash is often followed by physical reactions that can range from headaches to post-traumatic stress. Depending on the severity of your accident, you may immediately notice injuries, or they may disguise themselves for hours or even days after the incident. Even if you feel well after the crash, it is essential to monitor your health for this exact reason, and Arnold Law Group is here to help every step of the way.
The most common symptom of a car crash is frequent headaches in the days following the accident, which can be caused by a variety of factors, whiplash being paramount among them. Headaches may also be an early warning sign of neck injury, anxiety and stress, or even a concussion.
If you experience headaches or other physical traumas directly following an accident or in the time after, it is imperative that you seek medical attention to assure these symptoms are not signs of a larger issue.
In addition to headaches, neck, back, and shoulder pain are common symptoms to appear after an accident. Although you may feel fine at first, this pain can seem to come out of nowhere in the days following your accident. If you do experience any of these physical symptoms, they are not to be ignored!
The cause of the pain could be stress, nerve or tissue damage, joint injury, concussion, or any number of other physical trauma-related injuries. No matter what you are feeling, the cause and severity of the injury cannot be established without seeing a doctor.
If you experience a car crash, it is essential to be attentive to your symptoms following the event, and we recommend seeking medical advice even for symptoms that may seem minor.
Better safe than sorry!
