Your car crash injuries may end up being delayed

A seemingly normal drive to town can quickly become an unforgettable one for all the wrong reasons if you end up in a car crash. In some car accident situations, you may suffer injuries immediately, whereas in other situations, your injuries may experience a delay.

Either way, if your accident was the result of another driver's negligence, you have the right to pursue compensation in civil court. Here is a glimpse at delayed injuries in particular and how you can identify them.

Delayed injuries may affect the stomach and back areas

Perhaps your stomach is hurting following your car crash. You might have injured your abdomen's soft tissues and might be experiencing internal bleeding. Because the consequences of this could be fatal, it is critical that you have a doctor examine you. If your problem is internal bleeding, you might feel dizzy or experience headaches.

Likewise, it may behoove you to see a doctor if you begin to feel pain in your lower back. This type of pain may be due to a whiplash-related injury. You could also be suffering from a sprain or even muscle damage.

Headaches, neck/shoulder issues and numbness

Maybe you are experiencing head pain. This might be due to whiplash, but the problem might also be a concussion/brain injury or neck injury. You might also be struggling with headaches due to a blood clot or even post-traumatic stress disorder after your wreck.

Furthermore, maybe you feel discomfort in the shoulder/neck areas. This might be associated with whiplash or a herniated disc. If you start to feel some numbness or tingling in your back area, this might also be due to a pinched nerve caused by a herniated disc. Your limbs may additionally feel weak due to the presence of a herniated disc.

Your rights following a car crash that has caused you injuries

It is within your rights to file a personal injury claim against the driver who reportedly caused you to suffer delayed injuries in a motor vehicle accident due to his or her carelessness on the road. For example, the other driver might have been texting while driving, or maybe he or she was driving too quickly in light of the weather or road conditions.

If you are successful in your personal injury claim, the civil court may award you monetary damages that may help you to pay for your medical care and other expenses tied to the car accident.
