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.
