A delay in symptoms doesn't make an injury any less painful

A motor vehicle accident can take place at any given moment, and even a minor accident runs the unfortunate risk of placing your safety at risk. If another car hits yours while you are out driving on Ohio roads, your first instinct may pertain to seeking medical care for any apparent injuries you might suffer in the process.

While some accident injuries may present immediate symptoms, others can be somewhat less apparent. Some injuries might not develop symptoms for several days after the collision, and unfortunately, similar health concerns can have severe consequences.

Injuries that might not show up for days

Injuries with delayed symptoms can be just as painful as other health concerns, and some may even lead to long-term or permanent harm to your health. Some types of injuries that might not show up for hours or days after a crash may include:

  • Headaches and dizzy spells: Headaches and bouts with dizziness are common among accident victims, and in some cases, similar symptoms could indicate the presence of additional medical concerns, such as a traumatic brain injury.
  • Whiplash injuries: Injuries to the neck and shoulders can take days to show up and can sometimes develop into long-term or permanent health concerns.
  • Back pain: One of the most common accident-related injuries pertains to back pain, and similar injuries can have a significant impact on various areas of your life.
  • Abdominal pain: If you begin to experience abdominal pain in the hours or days after your crash, seeking medical care is vital, as this could indicate the presence of internal bleeding.

With the extensive costs of medical care and the likelihood of an extended period of recovery, your injuries might leave you facing a seemingly insurmountable financial hurdle. If the other driver is at fault, you might wish to know about the legal avenues available to you.

Personal injury claim

If you suffer serious injuries in a collision involving a negligent driver, you may wish to exercise your right to pursue restitution, but the civil justice system can be complex. Fortunately, you don't have to go through the process on your own, and it might be in your best interests to seek advice from someone who is knowledgeable in such matters early on. By obtaining such guidance, you could become better prepared to pursue the full amount of restitution you deserve and shift your focus toward recovery.
