You should still see a doctor to at least get checked out.. Car accident victims are often bad at determining the presence and severity of their own injuries due to the impact of trauma, the rush of adrenaline, and the nature of the injuries themselves.
For example, a brain injury can impact your decision-making ability so you might not go to the doctor, thinking nothing’s wrong with you. Yet a brain injury is one of the most severe and expensive injuries you can face and requires fast medical intervention.
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is also very difficult for patients to recognize in themselves and requires a mental health professional’s input. Please pursue a professional evaluation of your physical and mental injuries as soon as possible.
