Did you say you were not hurt (only to discover later that you were)?
As you may now be aware if you’ve already been in an automobile accident, the sheer trauma of suddenly being in a violent collision of tons of steel is emotionally rattling to say the least. Often people suffer an instant bad headache and cannot think clearly and their body’s chemicals have leaped into action sensing something is terribly wrong.
The victim often doesn’t know what, if anything, hurts or is injured. Many will tell the police they are NOT injured when they actually are injured severely, but their bodies haven’t informed them yet. In addition, some of the most common serious injuries suffered in automobile accidents don’t hurt instantly like hitting your finger with a hammer would. They may take hours, days, weeks, or even months to show up! This is why I often hear a negligent party lament that the other party wasn’t even hurt and said so at the scene of the accident. It is also why we almost always recommend you be promptly examined by a doctor who is familiar with automobile accident victims’ unique injuries and therefore knows what to look for. It is best to be checked out by a doctor who specializes in what you need.
