Not everyone who’s hurt in a car accident needs emergency medical care.
So if you didn’t have to ride in an ambulance to an ER, that’s a good thing. It means hopefully your injuries aren’t that severe.
However, even significant injuries aren’t always immediately obvious.
Broken bones, disc herniations, nerve impingements, concussions, and other problems may take several hours or a day or two before you really understand how much you’re hurt.
Adrenaline can also mask pain and keep you so “jacked” that you may need some time to calm down before you understand that you’re injured. Adjusters will claim you couldn’t have been hurt if you didn’t use EMS, but that’s just not the case.
If you’re having pain or other conditions, contact your primary care doctor, or go to an urgent care. Once you’ve had a doctor talk to you about your injuries, contact a personal injury car accident lawyer who really knows the ropes, and knows how to push back against insurance adjusters, and their efforts to get you to abandon your claim.
