Being involved in a car accident may be a terrifying experience, and can leave you with both psychological and physical injuries, as well as financial losses. While some injuries may appear immediately and be very obvious—such as a broken bone or a laceration that causes external bleeding—other injuries are not immediately detectable to the naked eye or may set in hours or days after the accident.
Stomach pain is an example of an injury that may not be immediately noticed, but could be very serious. If you have stomach pain after a car accident, you should seek medical care immediately. At the office of Tetzel Law, our car accident attorney can help you to recover compensation for your injuries. Call today for your free consultation.
Stomach Pain Could Be a Sign of a More Serious Injury
Stomach pain could be a response to stress and trauma. When a person is stressed, hormones and neurotransmitters are released into the body, which can impact gut mobility. Stress also impacts the balance of our gut bacteria, which can cause discomfort.
But stomach pain could also be a sign of a more serious injury that’s directly related to the car accident, including internal bleeding or/and trauma to the spleen, kidneys, intestines, stomach, liver, or reproductive organs. Internal bleeding and trauma to internal organs can cause long-term complications, and even death in the most severe of cases.
Seeking Medical Care After an Accident Is Critical
Because internal bleeding and internal trauma are not detectable to the naked eye, they can be difficult to initially diagnose. Indeed, a person who has been in a car accident may fail to seek medical care immediately following a crash because they are under the impression that they are fine and injury-free—just a little shaken up. You should always seek medical care as soon as possible after being involved in a crash. Seeking medical care is important for your health and wellbeing, but also for establishing a strong link between the car accident and your injuries. This link is vital for your insurance claim.
You Deserve to Be Compensated in Full
If you are suffering stomach pain after a car accident and learn that the stomach pain is a sign of something more serious, you may incur high medical expenses during treatment. It’s important that you know that you deserve to be compensated for your injuries and all costs incurred in full if your accident was caused by the negligence of another party. Our lawyer will work hard to build your claim, prove liability, calculate your damages, and aggressively negotiate to get you the settlement you deserve.
