Why it's important to see a doctor after any car accident

Winter means New Hampshire roads are a little more slick than normal, and drivers not used to the elements can make mistakes.

This means the chances of being in a car accident rise as the temperature drops. Unfortunately, too many people don't take the proper precautions after an accident. It's important to always see a doctor following a car accident, for this reason:

Injuries can take time to appear

You're in a minor fender-bender, and after swapping insurance information, you put it behind you. You feel perfectly fine, after all, and you have to get to work. A week later, you notice your lower back has been hurting and you can't figure out why.

Any car accident features a great deal of stress on your body. Even if you weren't going very fast, the impact and sudden stop can cause any number of injuries that you may not feel immediately.

Some of the injuries that may not be immediately felt include:

  • Sprains to your neck, back or shoulders
  • Internal organ damage
  • Severe muscle bruises or tears
  • Spinal fractures
  • Dislocated shoulders or hips
  • Whiplash

The adrenaline from an accident can mask a lot of severe pain for hours afterward.

Better safe than sorry

Only a physician can really know if you are uninjured after an accident. Because of this, it's important to see one as soon as possible. Even if you feel fine, a physician can make certain you haven't been injured.

It's important to take this safety precaution, as untreated injuries can cause major health issues later on. Going to see a doctor allows you to be sure you are uninjured following an accident.

If it turns out you are injured after a car accident, you may want to file a personal injury claim against the other driver. If that's the case, a skilled personal injury attorney can walk you through that process.
