Don't Ignore Your Pain After a Car Accident

A car accident is a jarring experience, both physically and emotionally. In the aftermath of an accident, it’s important to pay close attention to your body and mind and seek professional help if necessary. Oftentimes, the full extent of your injuries may not be immediately apparent.

If you’ve been in a car accident, you may be feeling a lot of pain. And while some pain is to be expected, there are certain types of pain that you shouldn’t ignore. Whiplash, for example, is a common type of neck injury that can occur during a car accident. Symptoms of whiplash include neck pain and stiffness, headaches, fatigue, dizziness, and difficulty concentrating.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s important to consult with a physician as soon as possible. In this blog post, we’ll explore some of the most common types of post-accident pain and what they could mean for your health.

Types of Injuries Commonly Associated with Car Accidents

There are many different types of injuries that can occur as a result of a car accident. Below are some of the most common types of pain and injuries after a car wreck.

Whiplash after a Car Accident

As mentioned above, whiplash is a neck injury that occurs when your head is suddenly jerked forward or backward. Symptoms include neck pain and stiffness, headaches, fatigue, dizziness, and difficulty concentrating. If you think you may have whiplash, it’s important to see a doctor right away.

Traumatic Brain Injury after a Car Accident

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a serious condition that can occur when your head hits an object or is subjected to sudden movement or shaking. Symptoms of a TBI can range from mild (e.g., headache) to severe (e.g., unconsciousness). If you think you may have suffered a TBI in an accident, it’s important to seek medical help right away. Traumatic brain injuries can be extremely serious and even life-threatening.

Spinal Cord Injury after a Car Accident

A spinal cord injury occurs when there is damage to your spinal cord—the bundle of nerves that runs down your back and controls your movement and sensation. Symptoms of a spinal cord injury depend on the location and severity of the injury but can include paralysis (loss of movement), loss of sensation, and difficulty breathing. Spinal cord injuries are very serious – if you think you may have suffered one in an accident, it’s important to get medical help immediately.

Broken Bones after a Car Accident

Broken bones commonly occur in car accidents, especially if you were involved in a high-speed collision or rollover accident. Symptoms include pain at the site of the break, swelling, bruising, and difficulty moving the affected limb or body part. If you think you may have broken a bone in an accident, it’s important to go to the hospital right away so that your injury can be treated properly.

Internal Bleeding after a Car Accident

Internal bleeding occurs when blood vessels are damaged and bleed internally. This type of injury is often not immediately apparent after an accident but can be very serious if left untreated. Symptoms of internal bleeding include abdominal pain or tenderness, chest pain or tenderness, shortness of breath ,and lightheadedness or dizziness .

If you experience any of these symptoms after an accident—even if you don’t think you weren’t injured, it’s important to seek medical attention right away as internal bleeding can be life-threatening .

What to Do if You Have Been Injured in a Car Accident

Whether you were injured in a minor fender bender or major collision, if you’re experiencing any type of pain – whether it’s neck pain, back pain, or something else – it’s important to see a doctor as soon as possible. These types of injuries can have long-term effects on your health if they’re not treated properly. Don’t wait for your symptoms to get worse! Early treatment can make all the difference in your recovery.

Not only could early treatment improve your prognosis and speed up recovery time, but seeing a doctor directly after an accident will also create a documented record of your injury in the event that you need to consult with a personal injury lawyer to file a claim later on.

A car accident lawyer can protect you and your case by thoroughly investigating the events surrounding your crash, ensuring critical evidence is preserved, working with expert witnesses, and handling all legal aspects of the case, including any negotiations with the insurance companies or settlements.
