While you may not be concerned about a few cuts or bruises after a car accident, and you may simply be thankful that you weren’t hurt more seriously, don’t be too quick to dismiss symptoms of pain and discomfort. Victims may expect to feel some pain after being involved in even a minor wreck, but that pain could be a symptom of a more severe injury that can’t be seen with the naked eye.

Are You Ignoring Your Pain After a Sioux Falls Car Accident?

While the pain you’re feeling may go away as your body heals from the trauma of a sudden impact, you should realize that the pain you’re ignoring may be a sign that you are more seriously hurt than you thought. See a doctor if you experience:

  • A headache that doesn’t seem to go away
  • Neck pain and stiffness
  • Joint pain
  • Chest tenderness and bruising
  • Cuts or abrasions that seem to become more painful over time
  • Any pain that increases with time instead of getting better

It’s wise to seek medical attention any time you or a family member is involved in an accident with another driver, even if you don’t believe you have been seriously hurt. Failing to seek medical attention could wreck your chances of holding a negligent driver responsible for your injuries, and an untreated injury could affect your life for years to come.
