Why don’t you always feel an injury right after a wreck?

On Behalf of | Apr 19, 2022 | Car Accidents

Many people focus on the physical injuries that are possible in a crash. They may not realize that the physiological impacts can be just as serious. These are impacts that occur within your body that you probably don’t even realize are occurring as a result of the crash. 

One of the primary physiological effects of a car crash is an adrenaline rush. This can lead to very specific symptoms, including intense focus, heightened senses, and a lack of sensitivity to pain. In some cases, people don’t realize that they suffered an injury because they don’t feel it. 

Are physiological impacts ever a problem after a car crash?

For the most part, physiological effects that occur after a motor vehicle wreck should go away quickly. In the case of an adrenaline rush, you’ll probably know when the rush is over because you’ll start trembling and may feel faint. Your blood sugar can fluctuate during this process. You’ll likely notice that sleep helps you to feel better.

People who are involved in car crashes must ensure that they have a medical evaluation so they can get the care they need for their injuries. They may choose to seek compensation for the financial damages they’re having to handle because of the wreck. A time limit applies to personal injury claims, so be sure to get the case filed as quickly as you can. 

You should work with someone who can help you determine what types of damages to claim and what amounts to include for each. These cases should include what you’ll need to cover damages you already know about, as well as those that will occur in the future.
