A lot goes through your mind when you are in a car crash. Sometimes, the emotional and physical impact of your crash doesn't really "set in" until a few days after the accident occurs. There are many injuries related to car crashes that may not be immediately apparent right after the accident happens. For example, many common injuries that can show up in the days or weeks following an accident include whiplash, headaches, back and neck pain, fogginess and disorientation, and emotional effects.
It is important to realize that the symptoms of a car crash injury may not manifest themselves until a few days after an accident, so if you or a loved one are in an automobile accident and have unexplained pain a few days later, car accident injuries may be the cause of your discomfort. For example, the most common way to experience whiplash from an automobile accident is from a rear-end collision.
