If you are involved in an accident, it is very likely the initial shock of the accident and subsequent adrenaline rush will make it difficult to determine the extent of your accident-related injuries. You may not feel any pain or believe you sustained any significant injury so you might refuse treatment at the scene of the accident. You don’t bother going to see your doctor as, at that moment, you do not feel the need. The problem with this is the accident may have caused internal harm and other injuries which will only be detected if you see a doctor. Failing to see a doctor will make it harder, but not impossible, to prove your injuries were caused as a direct result of the accident. In these types of cases the party responsible for causing your injuries can easily argue that your injuries must have been caused in some other way, as if you had truly been injured in the accident, you would have seen a doctor right away.
Not all accident victims will feel immediate pain or discomfort following an accident. Some victims will not have any symptoms appear until days or even weeks after the accident.
