After a car crash, you might think you’re completely fine. Other than some scrapes and aches in your body, or a few scratches and dents on your car, you might drive away and assume it was a harmless fender bender. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case.
Sometimes after a car accident you think you haven’t been injured, but really the adrenaline was masking your pain. Since you didn’t think you were hurt, you might not have gone to be evaluated by a medical professional. These latent injuries are actually common after a collision because they were masked at the time, and so victims leave the scene thinking they’re okay.
