If you don’t feel pain after an accident does that mean you aren’t hurt?

Many people who have been in an accident assume that if they don’t feel pain right away they have not been hurt.

Some injuries, such as concussions and soft tissue injuries, are common in auto accidents and can be very serious. The shock and emotional distress that come with such an accident can disguise an injury for days, or even for a week or more.

If you have been in an accident you should get a medical evaluation immediately at the first sign of pain or discomfort. Early diagnosis and treatment can save you months or even years of unnecessary pain and disability. After getting attention for your injuries, you should talk to an injury legal representative.
