If you have been in a car accident, it is very likely that you are not functioning at your peak, and this is no time to be making important decisions – like whether or not you should seek medical care. Many people go on to describe the aftereffects of a car accident as feeling like you’re in a mental fog and/or feeling spacey, disoriented, or confused. If you have been in a car accident, it is always in your best interests to err on the side of caution and seek immediate medical attention. If another driver’s negligence leaves you injured, consult with an experienced Joliet personal injury attorney today.
After a car accident when you’re on the fence about whether you need to be checked out by a medical professional, there are several signs that should definitely guide you in that direction. These include:
Some injuries – like concussions, which are common in car accidents – are slow to present with symptoms. Because early detection is closely associated with more complete recoveries, getting medical attention early on is your best option.
Your recovery doesn’t end with a medical examination – you need to follow the doctor’s recommendations for recovery. It’s in the best interest of your health and in the best interest of your personal injury claim to follow your doctor’s orders carefully, including:
A car crash can cause many types of serious injuries, and your best path forward is to seek medical attention and to carefully follow all medical advice.
If you have been in a car accident that was caused by another driver’s negligence, it’s only natural to want to put it behind you as quickly as you can. The fact is, however, that even if you think you are fine, it’s nearly impossible to know before you’ve been examined by a medical professional. Injuries like concussions and spinal cord injuries can go undetected until they develop into more serious health complications.
Car accidents generally involve a significant impact, and it can be difficult to know at the outset whether you’ve been injured or not. The problem is that waiting until you have symptoms before seeking medical attention can leave you more seriously injured.
