Oftentimes after a car accident in Lafayette, LA, pain from the injuries will not present itself right away. In fact it can be days or weeks before you know the full extent of your injuries. You may walk away from an accident feeling like the luckiest person in the Lafayette only to have severe pain in your low back, mid back, or neck much later on.
When you’ve been involved in a car wreck, your body may be put into a flight or fight response and may produce adrenaline, which will numb your body until the adrenal hormone wears off. Once that happens (hours, days, or even weeks later), you will soon realize that you were injured in the accident.
