Explaining delayed onset of pain in a car accident

If you ever find yourself involved in a car accident, it's always best to accept medical care. You never know when an injury might develop after a Pasadena car accident. That's why you need to know about delayed onset of pain.

It is quite possible for you to feel zero pain after an accident due to your adrenaline pumping. Once the adrenaline wears off, pain could begin to set in all throughout your body.

Delayed onset of pain can occur anywhere on the human body, including the neck, head, back, arms, legs, stomach and the internal organs. As a non-medical professional, you can never know what exactly happened to your body during an accident. This is a primary reason why it is always best to accept medical attention immediately after a crash.

If you refuse medical treatment after an accident and pain develops days after the crash, you could find yourself in a difficult situation. You might not be able to prove that the pain is associated with any injuries suffered during the accident. This is especially problematic if you signed a treatment refusal at the scene for the emergency services personnel who responded.

Pain could take up to three days to develop following an injury, which is why you should always get evaluated after a crash.

If you wind up involved in a car accident in California, you should accept medical evaluation or care. Even if the medics on the scene feel you don't need to go to the hospital, it might still be a good idea just to protect yourself.
