Many patients report auto accident injuries arising 2-3 days after the incident and often leave a crash reporting no injuries. Often, after being in a car accident, you don't notice any injury symptoms right away for a variety of reasons. Natural hormones are secreted throughout the body when you undergo a traumatic event, like a car accident, which means you feel increased energy and, possibly, a lack of pain. Just because you feel fine immediately after a car accident doesn't necessarily mean you are fine. Once the release of those chemicals subsides, the pain from any car accident injuries may start to set in.
Following a car accident, you should always seek medical attention immediately even if you feel fine. Your doctor will be able to tell you if you've sustained any serious injuries in the car accident. A doctor can also give you advice on the sorts of red flags to watch out for and symptoms of potential injuries.
Unfortunately, many car accidents result in catastrophic injuries which cause, most of the times in various forms, permanent damage like disabilities or disfigurement or even death (fatal injury). Regardless if the patient makes a full recovery or not, these situations involve months of intensive medical treatment and huge medical bills that need to be paid. Experiencing such trauma and undergoing several surgeries also means that individuals involved in the car accident are unable to work, which makes the financial problem even more critical.
Insurance companies are supposed to cover most of the expenses, but their goal is to settle injury claims as quickly as possible in order to pay less money. This is why it is very important to contact a qualified attorney to make sure your injuries are correctly evaluated and to help you get your rightful compensation.
Serious injuries require experienced legal representation and include a wide range of physical trauma.
Miami Head and Brain Injuries
Your brain is well-protected by your skull and the fluid inside of it. However, if you strike your head, your brain may strike the inside of your skull with great force. The symptoms of a concussion are often very similar to that of more serious brain injuries. Traumatic brain injuries can be quickly diagnosed or can be discovered in time when symptoms like memory problems or mood issues start to appear. These injuries demand prompt diagnosis and treatment in order to minimize the damages and avoid worse scenarios.
Miami Amputations and Fractures
Patients having their hands, feet or other body parts amputated after severe accidents are not uncommon. Living with prosthetic limbs or worse, without a particular body part is not an easy thing to learn and do. Moreover, serious fractures can lead to the replacement of body parts with metallic implants which are not cheap at all.
Burns in Miami
This type of physical trauma can cause loss of sensory perception, extensive scarring, and even disfigurement. Burns are classified into various groups, depending on how extensive the affected area of the body is. They are pretty common in car accidents as fuels can ignite and burn the body of the people trapped inside the vehicle.
