Experiencing any type of accident can be jarring. Incidences such as car
collisions can also be terrifying. These types of events can trigger the
body’s adrenaline response, which prepares us for fighting or fleeing
whatever is filling us with fear. Part of this adrenal response includes
numbing pain signals to the brain, which allows us not to be distracted
by any injuries until we’re out of danger. Because of this tendency
to feel little to no pain after an accident, you should still see a physician
as soon as possible.
car accident, for example, you may not notice whiplash or bruising until days after
the collision occurred. However, in more severe crashes, a person could
experience a traumatic brain injury, such as a concussion, without realizing
it. Concussions don’t always result in the symptoms you might expect,
which is why it’s often best to visit a doctor as soon as possible.
Only trained physicians can diagnose potential injuries to the body, which
sometimes requires the use of medical equipment.
Not only could this precaution save your life, but it can also save you
money down the line if you decide to pursue a personal injury case. For
example, if you sustain a
slip-and-fall injury in a grocery store that sprains your knee, seeing a doctor right away
shows you find the damage concerning. If you later sue the owner of the
grocery store for lost wages as you recover, your attorney will be able
to prove you sought medical attention immediately. If you hadn’t
gone to the doctor, the grocery store’s attorneys would have used
your reticence as proof your injury isn’t as severe as you claim.
