Car Accidents Can Cause Delayed Injuries

Should you contact a car accident law firm even if you don't think you've been injured?

If you were involved in a car accident in Kansas, you should seek the advice of a professional car accident law firm as soon as you can. One common mistake people make following a car accident is dealing with the other party directly by themselves by simply swapping insurance information on the scene, especially if the damage done to the vehicles was minor and there are no perceived injuries. However, if you have been in a car accident, you may not realize that you have been injured until days after the accident.

Delayed Car Accident Injuries

Delayed injuries often occur as a result of whiplash. Even a small fender bender, where a car rear ended you at a low speed, can result in an injury. However, you may not realize you've been injured right away. This is because the adrenaline of being in an accident may overwhelm any pain you feel or because the symptoms may not appear until the injury grows worse without treatment.

Some of the symptoms of injuries that can appear hours or even days after the car accident has occurred include back pain, headaches, shoulder pain, neck pain, headaches, abdominal swelling, abdominal pain, and changes in physical function. If you experience any of these symptoms, it's important that you receive professional medical attention right away - not only to help treat the injury and prevent it from causing more serious problems, but also to get the treatment on record to help strengthen your case.

Following a car accident, it's a good idea to receive professional treatment no matter, since physical symptoms aren't the only types of injuries you can experience.

How a Car Accident Law Firm Can Help

A professional car accident attorney can gather the evidence needed to establish that the injuries you are suffering from were caused by the car accident. They can also help determine who is liable for the accident. An attorney will provide you with professional guidance on what steps you should take following a car accident to provide you with the best chance of presenting a strong claim.

Last but not least, a good lawyer can help you establish the discovery date of your injury so you can file a personal injury claim before the statute of limitations deadline is up.
