There is a chance that you will feel fine after you are in a car crash only to discover later that you did suffer an injury. Some people worry that this might negate any chance that they have of seeking compensation. The truth is that some injuries won’t produce immediate pain, so there isn’t any reason to think that this will have a negative impact on your claim.

One of the common injuries that comes with delayed pain is a head injury. Some brain injuries, including concussions, won’t produce pain right away. It can be hours or even days before you realize that you did have a head injury. In some cases, such as when there is a slow bleed in the brain, the pain won’t come until the pressure has had a chance to build up.

Another injury that might not lead to pain immediately is whiplash. Contrary to popular belief, this injury is actually very serious. It can lead to serious complications with the mobility of the neck, especially if there is considerable damage done to the structures in the neck.

Some spinal cord injuries can also produce symptoms later after the accident. These can include tingling and numbness in the limbs. Back pain might also occur.

Internal injuries and emotional trauma might also manifest in the weeks following the crash.

If you notice any of these symptoms, make sure that you get the medical care you need. Once that is done, you can move forward with your claim for compensation.
