Unmatched Experience

Our team is comprised of three well-respected names from the Arkansas Attorney General’s Office.

Delayed symptoms you may experience after a car accident

Hundreds of car accidents happen every day across Arkansas. 

Most of these auto accidents do not make the news because they are relatively minor in nature. However, even these minor collisions can still result in serious medical issues. You need to see a doctor within 24 hours of the initial crash to make sure everything is all right. It can take several days or weeks for the following symptoms to develop, and you want to get ahead of any potential health problems. 

Abdominal swelling and pain

You need to be mindful of pain anywhere on your body, but you need to be particularly vigilant of anything around the abdomen. It could be a symptom of internal bleeding. Other signs you have internal bleeding include fainting, dizziness and purple bruising. This type of bleeding is a life-threatening condition that requires the immediate attention of a doctor. 

Headaches and neck pain

Even if neither vehicle traveled very fast, you can still experience intense whiplash. It usually takes people a day or two to realize they suffer from whiplash after a car accident. It can result in damage around the tissue and muscles in the neck, shoulders and head. Some people even experience a concussion. A doctor needs to perform a CT scan, MRI or X-ray to adequately diagnose the issue. 

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Not all car accident injuries are physical. Some people experience a form of PTSD following a crash. It often manifests itself as terrible nightmares. Some people have vivid memories of the incident and cannot stop thinking about it. They may even be incapable of getting inside a car due to a significant phobia. It is most likely to occur to children involved in a car accident, but adults are also susceptible.
