Collision injuries delayed? Don't delay in seeking justice

As you embark on your morning commute to your workplace, you enjoy the view of the sunrise over the city as you simultaneously sip some refreshing coffee. However, all of a sudden, the sound of twisting metal enters your ears. You have just been involved in a car accident.

Sometimes, this type of collision occurs in Georgia due to the negligence of another driver, and it leaves you with injuries that either occur immediately or later. If you end up suffering injuries due to another motorist's carelessness, you have the right to seek to hold him or her accountable for them.

Delayed pain

A wide range of injuries may not show up right away after a motor vehicle accident. Here are some symptoms to watch out for, as they may point to serious injuries days or perhaps even weeks following your car collision.

  • Back pain: Pain, particularly in your lower back region, might indicate an injury related to whiplash. It may also indicate a herniated disk, a sprain or muscle damage. If you also feel numbness or tingling, you may even be suffering from a pinched nerve.
  • Abdominal pain: Soft-tissue injuries may lead to death if not treated. Therefore, if you feel abdominal pain following the accident, seeking immediate attention is paramount. Internal bleeding might also lead to deep bruising, headaches and dizziness.
  • Numbness: If your limbs feel weak or you feel tingling and numbness after the crash, you may be suffering from a herniated disc that is pressing up against or pinching your spine's nerves.
  • Shoulder or neck pain: This type of pain often points to whiplash but may also indicate a herniated disc.
  • Headaches: Headaches may be a sign of whiplash, a neck injury, a blood clot, a concussion or brain injury. Serious headaches may also point to post-traumatic stress disorder following your collision.

Your rights

If another motorist has injured you due to being negligent behind the wheel -- such as by speeding or driving while texting -- you may choose to seek monetary compensation.

A financial award cannot undo the events leading to the accident that caused your injuries, but it may help you to address your health care bills and even the loss of wages if your injuries caused you to miss work for an extended period of time. In addition, it may help with addressing pain and suffering as well as emotional distress resulting from the collision.
