Been in an Accident patientConvincing the injured

A significant number of people who have been in an accident actually need to be convinced that they are injured. It seems that all we ever hear about are the people who fake injuries for the sake of financial gain. The other side of the coin is that there are many people who have injuries and will refuse care because they do not want to be viewed as one who exaggerates or makes up injuries for financial compensation.

If you do not feel pain, you have not been injured

Another errant myth is that if you don’t feel pain within 72 hours after the accident or been in an accident, you are not really injured. The truth is that:

  • A significant number of people do not feel pain after a car accident within the first 72 hours.
  • Sometimes it can take weeks or even months before you start feeling all of your symptoms.

There are a number of reasons for this. First, we can suffer from a mild form of shock that is designed to protect us from severe pain in traumatic situations. Secondly, when we are injured, inflammation will build up over time, and the pain will become evident. Additionally, many people may “take it easy” for a week or two after an accident. When they return to normal activity, they eventually realize that they experience a great deal of pain with normal activities.
