When you are involved in a car accident in Atlanta, things often occur in just the blink of an eye. Most notably, the stress of the accident can cause your body to flood with adrenaline. This adrenaline can take hours to fully leave your body. In the interim, you may not realize you suffered an injury in the accident. This is why it is important that you never say you are “fine,” following a car accident until you have seen a medical professional.

Injuries that are not always apparent after a car accident are frequently called hidden injuries. These injuries are masked by the adrenaline of the crash and can go days before becoming fully apparent.

Unfortunately, insurance companies and their adjusters are skeptical of injuries that “suddenly” appear days after a car crash. They treat these injuries harshly and rarely believe injured accident victims. They may even suggest that you are filing a fraudulent claim. When this occurs, you need an experienced Atlanta car accident attorney on your side to fight for you and for your rights to obtain maximum compensation.

Common Hidden Injuries After a Car Accident

Some of the most common injuries that may not manifest immediately following your accident include:

While you should always see a doctor after a car accident, if you experience any of the following symptoms, see a medical professional immediately:

  1. Stiffness in the neck or shoulders
  2. Pain that does not go away anywhere in the body
  3. Numbness or tingling in any part of the body
  4. Persistent headaches
  5. Back and neck pain
  6. Pain or swelling in the abdominal region
  7. Depression, anxiety, or mood changes
  8. Insomnia
  9. Changes in appetite
