Car accidents are always unexpected. If you’ve been injured in a car accident, dealing with the results can be difficult and overwhelming regardless of who you are.
At the moment of impact, our bodies go into “fight or flight” mode and release adrenaline, which makes us more alert and temporarily numbs pain. As a result, people who are injured in a car accident often won’t begin to feel the full extent of their symptoms and injuries until hours later or even the next day.
Additionally, car accidents can often cause the people involved to suffer concussions, as the forces of the impact involved cause our brains to hit against the inside of our skull, causing difficulty with neurological processing and making the tasks that need to be done even more difficult.
The world will not pause for someone injured in a car accident. Typically, someone who was injured in a car accident has to deal with numerous problems almost immediately, such as:
- Repairing your vehicle or dealing with the total loss process if the vehicle is damaged badly enough to be deemed a total loss
- Getting appropriate medical care and treatment for your injuries
- Making an insurance claim and dealing with the insurance company/companies involved
- Getting a rental car or arranging other transportation
- Making appropriate arrangements with your job
Unfortunately, insurance companies are aware of this situation all too well and will often try to take advantage of people who have been injured in a car accident at a time when they are vulnerable. Why do they do this? Simply put- it’s part of their business model. Every dollar that’s paid out on a claim is a dollar less that they make in profit.
