What if my accident injuries don’t show up right away?

In a car accident, a lot can happen in an instant. There could be multiple cars or even pedestrians and bicyclists involved. One minute you’re driving peacefully, they next thing you know, you’re stunned, there are sirens wailing, and possibly serious injuries around you. Your adrenaline is pumping, your mind is racing, and you may be more concerned with the health and safety of someone else. You may be hurt, but not feel it in the heat of the moment. Sometimes physical problems might not surface till hours, or even days later. You may find yourself asking, “What if my accident injuries don’t show up right away?”
