Even if you feel normal after a car accident, with no symptoms, you should be thoroughly examined. Symptoms can be delayed for days, and in some cases, symptoms may not surface for years. Worse, whiplash injuries can still be causing symptoms after five years, and in the long run, can cause secondary problems such as osteoarthritis. This delay in symptoms and the long-term consequences make it very important to be examined after any accident. Any substantial blow to your body, whether from a car accident, contact sports, or an accident at work, can cause whiplash or other neck injuries.
