What If I think I’m OK After an Accident, and Realize Later That I’m Injured?

Personal Injury Attorneys call this type of scenario “delayed injuries.”  It happens all the time.  Right after the shock of an accident, and the police come to the scene and you tell them you’re fine, but then you go home and realize that everything is hurting.  Of course, it is always better for an injury lawsuit if you notice your injuries right away, but it’s not too late to seek medical treatment for “delayed injuries” at any time after the accident when you realize you were hurt.  Even though they are “delayed injuries,”  its still “the sooner the better,” so as you soon as you notice you’re hurt, you should go to the emergency room to get checked out.  Follow the instructions on the discharge sheet for follow-up and call a personal injury attorney for a consultation.  An experienced personal injury attorney will know how to make a case for your delayed injuries.
