If you are involved as a driver or passenger in any type of motor vehicle accident, whether a fender bender, rear-end collision or t-bone accident, your first and foremost priority is always determining if anyone, including an innocent bystander, is injured.
It is important to remember that the actual harm caused by an accident is not always apparent. The symptoms of an injury or condition may not be immediately visible or recognizable in the hours after a motor vehicle accident. Many of the types of injuries suffered in motor vehicle accidents do not cause pain immediately after the event.
It is also important to not minimize the effects of any obvious injury. Pain, dizziness, and numbness may be signs of more serious and substantial injuries. Any delay in seeking medical care potentially places health and well-being at risk.
An extremely important consideration in this circumstance is that the longer you wait after the car accident to seek medical treatment, the more difficult it will be to prove that any injuries were the direct result of the accident.
Accident victims often think that they have escaped an accident perfectly healthy and unscathed if they experience no pain or visible signs of physical injury. Drivers and passengers involved in an accident should always, without exception, seek medical care after a motor vehicle mishap to ensure that they have not suffered any delayed pain injuries.
