Delayed Injury Symptoms after Auto Accidents

Unfortunately, auto accidents are a common occurrence and can result in serious injuries. Not all injuries will be noticeable at first; however, and some symptoms don't begin to appear for days or weeks. 

Some injuries which often have delayed symptoms can include:

  • internal bleeding;
  • head trauma;
  • whiplash; and
  • chronic pain, such as headaches. 

Symptoms of injuries such as internal bleeding can occur immediately after the auto accident but they also may gradually start to appear over time. If someone else is responsible for your injuries, a Tyrone personal injury attorney can help you file a personal injury claim. This can help with the financial costs of diagnosing and treating your injuries.

It may be difficult to recognize some injuries but symptoms to look out for include: 

  • headaches;
  • stiffness and pain;
  • numbness;
  • dizziness;
  • fatigue;
  • decreased mental functioning; and
  • fluid drainage from nose, mouth or ears. 

Even at slow speeds, auto accidents can cause serious injuries, such as internal bleeding.

If left untreated, injuries such as internal bleeding can lead to dangerous health complications, such as:

  • shock caused by loss of blood circulation;
  • organ damage or failure;
  • brain damage or coma; and
  • death. 

If you've been in an auto accident that caused internal bleeding or other serious injuries, whether immediate or delayed, you should discuss filing a personal injury claim with the help of a Tyrone personal injury attorney. Just because your symptoms might be delayed, doesn't mean the liable party can't be held responsible.
