Are you in pain hours after a cycling collision with a car?

As a cyclist, you must constantly remain aware of drivers around you, even in areas with bike-friendly features or protections. The unfortunate truth is, despite increasing awareness of cyclists, collisions with cars and other vehicles do happen.

When a car accident happens, you may regain composure and believe that you are fine, apart from light scrapes and bruises. However, sometimes, pain arises after some time, indicating a delayed onset injury. This can create a difficult situation if you find that you actually did sustain an injury that you did not identify at the scene of the accident.

Before you spend too much mental energy worrying about how to proceed, make time to get a proper medical evaluation from a doctor. If you do find that you suffered some injury in the accident, you now have medical documentation to back up an injury claim.

At this point, it is wise to consult with an attorney. After telling the other party that you are probably fine, it may seem difficult to turn around and accuse them of injuring you. An experienced attorney can help you understand all the issues at hand and determine how to move forward to pursue compensation for your medical expenses and other losses. An attorney can also contact other parties on your behalf, as well as handle interactions with various insurance companies and medical care providers to ensure that you remain focused on recovery.

Beware of abdominal pain after a car accident

There are many kinds of injuries you may suffer that cause delayed pain, such as blows to the head, injuries to your musculature or spinal injuries. However, most of these do not pose immediate threats to your life.

Abdominal injuries, however, are exceptionally dangerous. If you begin to feel pain in your abdomen after a collision with a car, go to an emergency care facility as soon as you possibly can. Do not wait! In some cases, delayed onset abdominal injuries can turn fatal in a matter of minutes.

These injuries may include organ damage or even internal bleeding, both of which are easily fatal without proper treatment.

Get the help you need

After a bicycle accident, you should not have to focus on anything but recovering from your injuries. Don't hesitate to reach out to an experienced attorney to learn about your legal options.
