Hidden Injuries After a Car Accident

Car accidents are random events you don’t expect. After the crash, you may feel numb because of the shock to your system and some injuries may be obvious at first. Unfortunately, many people are not immediately aware of the true extent of the harm they have suffered. Hidden injuries can manifest weeks, months, and even years after an accident. You should seek medical attention as soon as possible after an accident – a healthcare professional may be able to spot problems before you can, and a delay could make your injury worse.

No one expects that they will ever be involved in a serious accident. However, statistically, most drivers will be involved in a car accident at some point in their lives.

Of course, when it comes to the type and extent of injuries caused by an accident, there is significant variance. Certainly, many accidents are minor, resulting in only bumps, bruises, and a mild case of whiplash. However, on the other end of the spectrum, some accidents cause severe and debilitating injuries.

In the wake of a traffic collision, dealing with insurance carriers to get the compensation you deserve is inevitable. Depending on the circumstances of your accident, you may be eligible to receive a significant amount of money.

When auto insurance carriers know their policyholder is liable for an accident, they know they will have to pay a claim. Insurance companies do not stay in business by paying the full amount of every claim that comes their way. Instead, they try to minimize financial liability.

If an insurance adjuster thinks the company can get away with not paying the claim, they may drag out the process by refusing to settle for a reasonable amount. This forces injured victims to do one of two things: give up or file a lawsuit.

Neck Pain

The forces involved in a car accident are tremendous. However, when someone is involved in a car accident, they do not always immediately realize the full extent of their injuries. Often, an accident victim will see blood or broken skin, and their brain will tell them that is the source of their pain. However, most car accident injuries do not appear right after the accident, especially those involving the lower back and neck. Injuries to the neck and lower back are extremely common and will often carry lifelong consequences. Limited movement, lingering pain, jarring headaches: these are all caused by damage to the neck and back. However, these are also some of the most overlooked injuries.

Car Accident Airbag Failure

There are more vehicles on the road now than ever before. In fact, at the end of 2019, numbers reached over 279 million and are only expected to keep rising. However, the number of fatal automobile accidents is declining. Advancements in cutting-edge safety technologies play a large part in the lower number of fatalities, especially airbags. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), over the span of 30 years, more than 50,000 lives were saved due to the proper deployment of airbags.

The unfortunate truth is that airbags can only be a benefit to the occupants of a vehicle if they deploy – and if they do so in a timely manner. Airbags can fail to deploy for a variety of reasons. Most commonly, there’s a manufacturer defect to blame.
