ARTICLE FROM YOUR TAMPA INJURY ATTORNEY:
INJURED IN A TAMPA CAR OR AUTO ACCIDENT?
I don’t think I am hurt…but I don’t feel the same.
After A Car Accident: You may be injured and not know it. Ask yourself this: are you the same today physically as you were the day before the accident? Do you feel pain or just out of whack?
Injuries such as whiplash or “soft tissue” may not show any symptoms for hours, days, or even weeks later but the majority of medical professionals agree that the first 72 hours after an auto accident are the most critical and the time period during which treatment can be the most effective.
Believe it or not, the majority of auto accident injuries occur at speeds of 6 – 12 mph. This results in your car not showing much damage but your body might!
Often, a soft-tissue injury such as whiplash is permanent. Scar tissue can form in your muscles leaving them less flexible and prone to re-injury if you don’t receive proper treatment. If you are injured, your injuries typically will not heal on their own.
After an accident, get prompt medical attention. If you don’t get medical attention within the first 14-days, your benefits could be denied or limited, and your level of pain will likely increase. In most cases, treatment can cost you nothing out of pocket, even if the accident was your fault.
Don’t wait. Get help immediately.
If you do not have a doctor that can treat you after your car accident, we can recommend a doctor near your work or home or elsewhere that will work with you and get you feeling better.
