Adrenaline and shock can mask symptoms of your car accident injury for hours, days, or even months. In Florida, you only have 14 days following your car accident to seek medical attention through your Personal Injury Protection coverage.
If you allow this time to pass because you assumed you weren’t injured, you would have to pay out-of-pocket when the pain finally rears its ugly head.
It’s normal to feel sore in the days or weeks following a car accident. But unless you seek professional medical assistance, there’s no way to know whether your soreness will heal on its own or whether it’s a symptom of a more serious condition.
To know for certain, you need to visit a car accident chiropractor who can provide you with accurate information about your medical health. The chiropractor will detect injuries you have and develop a treatment plan catered specifically for your injuries.
