Many Types of Injuries to Watch for After a Car Wreck

The stress of an auto accident often means that our bodies release adrenaline. This can mask the true extent of injuries. Even those who do not think they were hurt should still seek a medical evaluation.

A chance exists that injuries could appear days or even weeks after the automobile wreck. This is troublesome because it can lead to insurance company questions whether a car accident was the cause of an injury. Regardless of how severe your injury immediately seems, it is good practice to schedule a check up and mention any concerns so they can be monitored.

Bumps and bruises

Bumps and bruises can give you a bit of pain at the scene of the accident, but you might really start to feel the effects once you have gotten home and start to rest. You may start to feel stiff and sore as time progresses, especially after you've been still for a bit. This type of discomfort could signal something more serious, so seeking medical care is still a good idea.

Cuts and lacerations

You may notice lacerations and cuts while you are on the scene of the accident. If you have any bleeding continually or that are particularly large, have the emergency medical technicians take a look at the injury. Be vigilant about watching the area for signs of infection.

Broken bones and fractures

Fractures and broken bones can come from the impact. You will likely know that you have this type of injury at the scene of the accident. It comes with considerable pain that you can't ignore.

The only exception is if there is a hairline fracture, which can cause discomfort but might not result in the type of pain that makes you think something serious is going on.

Back and head injuries

Injuries to the back, spinal cord, neck and head are serious. You might not notice these at the time of the accident, but delayed symptoms can persist. In all cases, having signs that something is amiss requires that you seek medical care. For example, bleeding within the brain might not cause you symptoms right away, but they will begin to appear as the pressure builds. A very slow bleed could result in your not having symptoms for many days or even weeks before you start to realize there is something wrong.

If a negligent driver caused your injury, the puzzle to seek needed, fair compensation becomes much more complicated. There are time limits for these cases, so acting quickly is imperative. You will likely still be able to take legal action in Wisconsin if you have delayed symptoms.
