Sometimes, feeling no pain after a car accident can turn into the worst pain of all.
Motor vehicle collisions produce a wide variety of injuries, from minor cuts and bruises to severe head trauma that requires emergency surgery. One result of an auto crash can be the loss of feeling in a limb or a certain area of the body. Numbness often results in some type of damage to the nerves that run through the spinal column. Feeling numbness after a car accident is a common symptom of a much more serious underlying medical condition. Numbness can turn out to be a symptom of partial or full paralysis that can last a short period or throughout the rest of a lifetime.
On the other hand, numbness can eventually give way to a rapidly growing sensation of severe pain that makes it difficult to get out of bed and complete basic household chores such as cooking and doing laundry. If you got involved in an auto crash and the result is the feeling of numbness, you should seek immediate medical care by undergoing a series of diagnostic tests that might detect the issue causing you to feel numb in a certain area of the body. Your healthcare provider can diagnose your medical condition, as well as issue a prognosis concerning the likelihood of you making a full or partial recovery.
You also should contact an experienced personal injury attorney if you feel numbness after a car accident. A lawyer conducts an exhaustive investigation that includes the gathering of physical evidence, as well as interviews held with witnesses that provide legal support for your case. Your personal injury attorney also helps you organize medical bills and records to file the most persuasive insurance claim and perhaps a civil lawsuit that seeks monetary damages.
