Following a traumatic incident, adrenaline sends our bodies into shock as a means of protection. This numbness affects everybody differently and can last a significant amount of time. When you are involved in a car accident, your body immediately recognizes danger and shifts into survival mode, temporarily numbing you. After the screeching tires and honking horns have subsided and you come to realize what has just occurred, it may take some time to feel the physical ramifications of what you’ve experienced.
Due to this natural instinct, it is quite common for injuries to not reveal themselves until long after the incident took place. Once the endorphins wear off and the painful symptoms start to set in, you may start to worry about obtaining the compensation you need to survive this injury--especially if your injuries present themselves too late. Though the statute of limitations may have expired, there are various exceptions to this rule in tort law, such as the Discovery Rule. This means the time period doesn’t begin until you first become aware of the injury.
The following are common injuries which may take some time to reveal themselves, including:
- Soft tissue injuries, such as strain or damage to your muscles, tendons, or ligaments
- Concussions or brain contusions
- Internal bleeding
- Cellular damage as a result of toxic exposure
