It is not uncommon for injuries resulting from auto accidents to take several hours or even several days to become apparent, and even a minor accident can cause severe injuries. This is just one of the reasons you need a Utah personal injury lawyer on your side.
Some auto accident injuries that commonly manifest well after the fact include:
There are some forms of brain injuries that can cause lifelong difficulties. One of the more severe injuries you can sustain during a car crash is a traumatic brain injury. This type of injury happens when you strike your head on an object inside the vehicle. Some examples of TBIs include skull fractures, concussions, and cerebral hemorrhages.
If you received a traumatic brain injury, you need to follow your doctor’s orders. Then, reach out to a Woods Cross car accident lawyer for help.
Many people disregard the mental health issues that arise after a vehicle collision even though they can be quite serious. As a result, some people develop post-traumatic stress disorder after a crash. This could make it extremely hard for them to cope with the stress of driving a car day after day, negatively impacting their daily lives.
