It is not uncommon to feel pain following a crash, but not seek immediate medical attention. The shock of the collision can increase adrenaline, dulling our sense of pain. Sometimes, the injured party isn’t fully aware of the injury until inflammation has set in. When this happens, it is critical to seek medical attention right away. It is never a good idea to delay treatment for both medical and legal reasons. Medically it can lead to long-term complications and legally it gives the insurance adjuster the argument that the wreck did not cause your injuries or the delay in treatment caused the injuries to be worse. If you think you are injured in a collision get a medical evaluation right away. Also, you would likely benefit from legal assistance to avoid the pitfalls of making a legal claim on the insurance policy of the at fault driver.
