Being in a car accident can be a terrifying and traumatizing event. Immediately after an accident, you may find yourself flooded by what just happened, by questions from the authorities and the drivers that were involved, and by fear and confusion.
With all of this distraction, you may not take the time to really evaluate how you're feeling. Your adrenaline may kick in, making you feel as though you're physically fine; however, after an accident, there can be serious injuries that take days or even weeks to show symptoms.
If you begin to experience the following symptoms after a car accident, a severe injury may have occurred:
- Lasting headaches
- Neck or back pain
- Changes to your sleeping pattern
- Memory loss
These symptoms can be signs of whiplash or even a concussion and require medical attention.
