Almost everyone will be involved in a car accident at some time in their life. Most people are able to walk away free of injury...or so they may think. In many cases pain or other symptoms do not start immediately after an accident. In fact, pain commonly doesn't begin until hours later or the next day, and sometimes not for weeks or even months after the accident.
The Car was only Scratched...
The amount of damage to the car has little to do with the amount of injury sustained by the people inside. While high speed accidents often cause more serious injuries, studies indicate that injuries can occur at impact speeds as low as 5 mph where there is little or even no visible damage to the car.
The most common symptoms of accident injuries are pain or stiffness in the neck, shoulders or back sometimes associated with pain or numbness in the arms or legs. Other common symptoms include headaches, dizziness, chest pain, sleeping problems and even irritability. Most people are unaware that accident related neck or back injuries can develop into permanent joint degeneration in later years.
