There are no two car accidents that are exactly alike, thus it seems sense that no two injuries sustained in an accident would also present differently, have different pain thresholds, etc. There are a variety of side effects that might accompany the large spectrum of injuries that can be sustained during an accident.
Ironically, one of the most frequent side effects following an accident is the absence of any side effects or pain. This is why it’s crucial to make an appointment with an auto accident doctor as soon as you can, even if it’s just for a minor collision, to help diagnose any underlying injuries that might be negatively affecting your health without your knowledge.
Car Accident Side Effects
More frequently, there are several side effects after an auto accident, including:
- neck and back pain
- stomach pain
If you are experiencing any of these side effects after an accident, it is critical to have them checked out by a doctor, as they could be an indicator of a much more serious internal trauma.
