Delayed symptoms after a car accident… What should you do?

Delayed symptoms after a car accident… What should you do?

You were involved in an accident and first you thought, ah, no harm, no foul, but now you’re starting to feel funny. What should you do?

Hi, I’m Frank Nunes. I’m a California personal injury trial attorney practicing in the state of California. The delayed onset of symptoms is not uncommon. You’re in a car crash, you’re in fight or flight mode, your adrenaline’s running. You’re really not paying attention to how you’re feeling at the moment because you’re so excited. Well, you get home, later you realize this hurts, that hurts, everything hurts. Particularly if something in your abdomen hurts. One of the most common latent injuries come from stomach pain, swelling, dizziness, and fainting.

Well, cases like this often looked suspicious to the average untrained person. They happen more often than you would believe. You should seek immediate medical attention if you’re experiencing internal injuries, such as stomach pain, swelling, dizziness, fainting, or large purple bruises that just don’t seem to go away. These could be signs of a more serious injury that you didn’t realize you suffered at the time of all the commotion from the collision.

Why am I telling you this? Well, because I get so many people that come in and say, I felt fine at the scene, and it was later that I began to feel this, that or other problems. It’s not uncommon to happen and this is why you need to consult an attorney because he or she can help explain these things to you and help you get the right treatment that you need to get your injuries resolved.

That’s it for today’s video if you have injuries that pop up later. By the way, if you found this information useful, subscribe to our YouTube channel. Why?
