If you have been in a car accident, you may be worried about what comes next. There may be an additional concern if you are experiencing pain you suspect to have come as a result of your accident. Is delayed pain after a car accident normal? What should you do if you experience delayed pain?

At Rubin, Glickman, Steinberg & Gifford, P.C., we have a great deal of talent in personal injury and criminal defense law, so we may be able to answer a few of your questions. If you are wondering what to do, we have some suggestions. 

What to Do if You Are Experiencing Delayed Pain After a Car Accident

Delayed pain after a car accident is more common than you might think. Many injuries that happen as a result of a car accident may not be seen or felt immediately, and this is likely related to the adrenaline and stress related to the situation.

If you are experiencing delayed pain after a car accident, we have a few suggestions for what you might need to do next.

Seek Medical Attention

If you’re experiencing delayed pain after a car accident, you are strongly encouraged to seek medical attention. This is because a medical professional may be able to thoroughly assess the situation, determine potential causes of your injuries, offer the best possible treatment, and suggest measures to prevent your situation from worsening over time.

Contact a Lawyer

You may want to hire a lawyer experienced in personal injury law, especially if you are planning on taking legal action for your damages and losses. Your lawyer may be able to assist you in some of the following areas:

  • Legal talent
  • Negotiation skills
  • Handle insurance companies and legal representatives
  • Reduce stressors
  • Recommend next best steps
  • Refer you to high-quality medical providers
  • Provide resources with more information
  • Collect and analyze evidence
  • Maximize potential compensation
  • Reduce the level of fault for your accident

If you plan on taking legal action, it is strongly recommended you avoid representing yourself. Your qualified personal injury lawyer is far more likely to represent your case accurately, effectively, and favorably during hearings and negotiations. Because of this, it is highly suggested you hire a lawyer to represent you.
