Most Injuries Do Not Show Up Until Weeks Or Maybe Months Later
Many people do not feel pain immediately, so they assume that they are okay. This is when the insurance company calls and acts as your friend and tells you to settle. Weeks or months after you settle until you feel the pain. This is because you might be suffering from hidden or soft tissue injury.
Just Because The Emergency Room Doctor Said You Are Okay,
It Does Not Necessarily Mean You Are Okay...
If you visit the emergency room, the doctor mostly are looking for
life-threatening injuries such a broken bone, puncture lungs, heart
failure, etc. As long as there is no immediate threat, they will
send you along your way with pain medication.
