What Injured Victims Should Know

Whether you walk away from an accident seemingly without a scratch or with catastrophic injuries, immediate medical attention is almost always necessary. Even if you don’t notice any injuries right away, some will appear days to weeks later. Back pain, muscle strain, and bruising from a sudden strike and/or whiplash usually show up long after the incident occurred. It’s important to see a doctor as soon as you start showing signs and symptoms of injury. Sometimes the adrenaline we experience after a trauma can cover the pain of a wound that we may not notice right away. Internal bleeding is a serious injury that warrants immediate medical attention, but victims may not realize they have it right away. After a serious wreck, allow the on-site paramedics to examine you for injury and heed their warnings carefully. Ignoring a traumatic injury can lead to even more harm, irreversible damage, or even death.

Many victims neglect medical treatment in fear that their insurance company won’t pay and they will be left footing the bill. Contacting a Parkland Kentucky car accident lawyer will prevent this from happening. Even so, it is better to receive the care you need than to suffer additional injury for not seeking treatment right away. T.J.
