It’s hard to understand what it is like to be in a car accident unless you go through the experience yourself. Even a relatively minor accident can be a big shock, and can cause you to suffer mild injuries, including bruising from wearing your seatbelt. Some people have gone on to put in a back injury car accident claim because they were hurt in a crash another person was responsible for causing.
You may not always realise you have suffered a back injury until some hours afterwards. It is very possible to feel more aches and pains the day after the crash rather than at the time. The effect of adrenalin, and the fact that swelling could readily appear over time, can mean some injuries aren’t immediately known.
