Automobile Injury or Personal Injury in Suwanee, Lawrenceville or Duluth?
Don’t delay. Get help immediately.
You were driving to work or home, on an errand, stopped for traffic or a red light. In a split second someone fails to stop in time and hits you. Your emotions range from relief that you are not seriously injured, to upset over the incident. The police investigate; you leave with the other driver’s insurance information and a drivable car, wondering how bad the damage will be.
How Bad is it?
You felt a sense of shock at the moment you were hit. Maybe you felt soreness or pain. Perhaps you think you are OK; a hot shower and you will be fine. You get home and look at your car again. Your thoughts turn to how and where you are going to get it fixed. Concern about your car, interim transportation, and dealing with the other person’s insurance fill your mind. There is a tendency to overlook your injuries because of the other concerns.
The Next Morning
It takes at least 12 to 24 hours for the inflammation to set in after an accident. You awake and feel worse than before you went to bed. If you go to a medical doctor or even the emergency room most of the time there are no fractures but the pain is awful. You are given a prescription for pain pills, anti-inflammatories, or muscle relaxers. But you can’t take some of them while driving or at work. You feel better while you are taking them, but the symptoms return.
