During a car accident, you may suffer injuries that you do not feel until hours or even days afterward. While most delayed onset injuries do not pose serious threats to the life of a victim, delayed onset injuries to the abdomen are very serious and deserve immediate attention.
If you recently experienced a car accident and just began feeling pain in your abdomen, you should receive emergency medical care immediately. Internal injuries, especially those in your abdomen, can turn fatal quickly. Do not wait until tomorrow or until the next convenient time. If you do, you may not live to see it.
Once you receive professional medical care, you can consult with an attorney to determine whether or not you have grounds for a personal injury claim. An attorney works on your behalf to make sure that you receive all the care you need and keeps your rights protected. An attorney can also work with your medical care providers to ensure that you do not drown in medical debt while you wait for a fair settlement from the accident.
