Why follow up a traffic accident with a medical examination?

For most of us, traffic is simply a part of life, one that is more of an annoyance than a daily opportunity to suffer serious, lasting injuries or even die. Even those who live further out from the city still often drive somewhere every day, and may not always think about how dangerous any traffic accident can be, whether it occurs on a relatively empty country road or at a crowded intersection.

After any car accident, you should always seek out a professional medical examination, no matter how serious or minor you might think the accident actually was. It is very possible that you suffered injuries that you don't feel quite yet, and the sooner you see a doctor, the sooner you can identify those injuries and treat them. If you wait until you feel the pain, it may be too late to avoid long-term consequences. This is especially true when it comes to delayed pain in your abdomen.

Pain in your abdomen

The most deadly delayed pain injuries usually occur in the abdomen. Typically, these include internal bleeding or damage to your organs. Just like it is very dangerous to lose blood externally, through a cut or gash, it is dangerous to lose blood internally.

Even if the injury is very small and there is not much bleeding, the area where the bleeding occurs may grow infected. This infection can quickly spread throughout your entire body, which will kill you if you do not receive medical care immediately.

Likewise, organ damage is potentially deadly but may not cause pain right away. At first, your body tries to heal the organ on its own, and for some very lucky people, this is enough. However, in many cases, the body cannot heal the damage on its own and the organ goes from struggling to failing completely.

Once one organ fails, the rest fall like dominoes. Not only is this deadly, it is a very painful way to die, and one that you should avoid at all costs.

Protect your rights during your recovery

While you recover from your injuries, you have many rights to protect. Make sure that you keep yourself and your rights secure by using all the legal resources and guidance that you have available, protecting your best interests so that you can focus on getting back on your feet and living your full life as soon as possible.
