Why Should I Seek Medical Treatment After An Auto Accident?
After an accident, you may feel fine or feel like nothing is wrong, only to wake up the next morning feeling pain and discomfort. An automobile accident can be a traumatic experience, and you may not realize it at the time. Your body immediately goes into defense mode, and releases adrenaline into your bloodstream. This could mask the pain for hours, or even days after your accident. That’s why it’s important to seek immediate medical care. Not only can you find out what is wrong with you, but the doctor can start treating you right away and prevent further injuries or pain by early treatment and detection.
