Some injuries from a car accident are delayed

Every time people get in their cars to drive in Florida, there is a possibility that they will be involved in a car accident. Usually, this does not happen, but it is always a possibility as many unexpected things occur while people drive and sometimes, other drivers make poor choices. Some of these accidents are minor and no one is hurt and there is only minor damage, but other times, the accidents can be severe and result in catastrophic injuries.

However, the extent of the injuries is not always immediately clear. This could be because of the adrenaline that the person had in the immediate aftermath of the accident, but the symptoms of some injuries simply do not appear until later on. The person may seem fine right away after the accident, but then a couple days later start experiencing various types of pain.

Some of these types of injuries are headaches, which could be due to a variety of different issues stemming from the accident. People may also begin experiencing neck or shoulder pain, which can be a symptom of whiplash. They may also have back pain or numbness, which also could be a sign of whiplash, but also signs of a herniated disk or pinched nerve. People could also experience abdominal pain which could be a sign of very serious problems. There are also non-physical issues that could arise such as anxiety, depression or post-traumatic stress disorder.

There are many people who are involved in a car accident in Florida. People who suffer injuries as a result of the accident may be entitled to compensation for their injuries. So, it is important to know the full extent of the injuries before reaching any settlement with an insurance company. Some injuries are delayed and it is important that people are compensated for those injuries as well. Working with an insurance company after an accident is not always easy and consulting with an experienced attorney may be useful.
