I Told the Officer I Was Okay, But Now I Don’t Think I Am

Posted on Jan 24, 2013 By Mark Leeds

Immediately following an auto accident, you experience a flood of emotions, thoughts, and physical sensations. One of those sensations is often an increase in adrenaline flowing through your body. In addition to giving your body the energy it needs to deal with hyper-stressful situations, adrenaline also serves as a masking mechanism for pain or discomfort. It can also be the reason why you didn’t think you were badly injured when the officer inquired as to whether or not you were okay, but you now feel as though your injuries are more serious than you first thought. If that is the case, an accident attorney in Portland should be consulted as soon as possible.

It is not uncommon for accident victims to experience a delayed onset of symptoms after an auto accident. Whether the delay is due to the masking effects of the adrenaline rush or because the nature of the injury is such that symptoms did not present until swelling occurred, a personal injury attorney can assist you in getting whatever financial remuneration you may be due as a result of the accident.

If an insurance company has questioned your claim because your symptoms were delayed or because you did not at first notify anyone regarding your injury, accident attorney Mark J. Leeds in Portland can help you in your attempts to obtain any compensation to which you may be entitled. Contact accident attorney Mark J. Leeds today to begin building a case to secure any compensation you may have been denied.
