Delayed symptoms of injury after a car accident

If you were in a car accident and left the scene without any injuries, you may think that there is no risk for you to develop any injuries in the future. However, it can often happen that car accident victims develop symptoms of an injury after the accident.

It is important to understand what these symptoms are so that you can be on the lookout for them in your particular case. In addition, if you develop symptoms, you may need to seek the assistance of a personal injury attorney for getting compensation. 

Signs of head trauma

Be particularly aware of any symptoms related to your head, because these could indicate a potential brain trauma. A simple headache after a car accident may be more than what it seems. Although you need not become alarmed, you should not dismiss a headache in the days following your accident. In some cases, head pain can indicate a problem such as a blood clot. Other symptoms to be aware of include a change in personality, dizziness, trouble with memory, or problems with hearing or vision. These may be symptoms of a concussion.

Signs of internal bleeding

Swelling or bruising following a motor vehicle accident should be checked by a medical professional. In some cases, abdominal swelling occurs, and this can indicate internal bleeding. This is a serious condition that needs a doctor's attention as soon as possible. Internal bleeding may also show up as a symptom of pain in the abdomen. 

Importance of exchanging information

Even if you think you have not suffered any type of injury after a car accident, you should always exchange information with the other driver. In the case of a delayed-onset injury, it will be of utmost importance to have the other driver's contact details and insurance information. If you leave the scene without any documentation of who the other driver was, you will likely have no recourse if you discover an injury later on. If you have any questions about this process, or about your particular situation, you should consult with a personal injury attorney.
