There you are, driving your typical route work when, suddenly, another driver rear-ends you. After a few minutes of shock and getting your bearings, you take stock of your condition and don't feel any injuries. Good news, at least you don't have to spend the rest of your day and maybe more dealing with injuries, right?
Unfortunately, many injuries that can occur in car accidents are quite dangerous, even though they do not cause pain initially. Delayed pain injuries account for a significant portion of all injuries suffered in traffic accidents, often leading to long-term suffering and even death. When car accident victims assume that they are fine other than a few scrapes and bruises after the shock wears off, they place themselves in serious danger.
