Brooklyn Delayed Injury Car Accident Lawyer

Delayed injuries in Brooklyn car accidents happen all the time. It isn’t so much that an injury is delayed as it is that there are no signs of the injury initially. Even the person who is hurt may not realize it.

This is one of the reasons why it is important to seek medical assistance immediately after a car accident and follow up with a medical professional within a matter of days. This is especially true as some of the most serious and long-term of injuries can be delayed injuries.

Not knowing about the injury immediately after the accident does not mean you can’t get help managing the pain and expense that result—especially if the accident occurred because of someone else’s negligence. A Brooklyn delayed injury car accident lawyer with Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP can help.

Causes of Delayed Injury After Car Accidents

No matter how small the accident, there is always a chance that an injury may not become apparent until later, such as with delayed whiplash.

After any traumatic event, the body has the potential to go into shock. When this happens, the signals that tell the brain you are in pain simply aren’t functioning as they normally do.

Car accidents are almost always considered traumatic events, and for some people, shock or adrenaline will prevent the severity of their injuries from being immediately apparent.

Statute of Limitations and Other Legal Issues

There is a statute of limitations that limits how long you can wait before pursuing compensation for injuries sustained in a car accident. You also need to show the court that you take your health seriously by seeking medical help immediately after an accident.

For both of these reasons, it’s important to follow the advice of both your medical provider and your lawyer. Don’t dismiss any symptoms you might experience. Sometimes the most serious injuries have minimal symptoms, such as a headache when you have a concussion or a stomach ache when you have internal bleeding.

Even if you think your injuries or symptoms are trivial, it’s crucial that you seek medical attention as soon as possible after a car accident.

Why You Need a Lawyer

If you do suffer a delayed injury after a car accident, it may not be too late to seek compensation for your injuries.

Many victims make the mistake of blaming themselves for not realizing the severity of their injury immediately, but it isn’t your fault. If your car accident was caused by someone else, you may be entitled to compensation, even if you didn’t notice the injuries right away.

An experienced Brooklyn delayed injury car accident lawyer can help you ensure your case doesn’t exceed the time constraints of the statute of limitations. You can assist your lawyer by keeping all your receipts and any documentation related to any injuries you sustained.

Don’t risk being a victim twice by ignoring your injuries. Call 1-800-VICTIM2 (842-8462) as soon as possible to get started.
