¿Cuánto tiempo después de un accidente automovilístico pueden aparecer las lesiones?

03/24/21

Estar involucrado en un accidente automovilístico es una experiencia horrible que siempre recordara.  Incluso si el daño a la propiedad no es grave un accidente automovilístico puede causar daños físicos y psicológicos duraderos. Si es capaz de levantarse y caminar después de un accidente automovilístico sin buscar atención médica, simplemente podría creer que usted es uno de los afortunados. 

De acuerdo con la Administración Nacional de Seguridad de Trafico en las Carreteras, una persona es lesionada cada diez segundos en un accidente automovilístico. Los expertos médicos dicen que las lesiones por un accidente de auto pueden manifestarse varios días después de que la conmoción inicial del incidente ha desaparecido. Los accidentes automovilísticos representan una cantidad substancial de lesiones anuales.  De hecho, la Asociación de Viajes Internacionales Seguros reporta que más de dos millones de personas resultan lesionadas o discapacitadas en accidentes de auto cada año.

Dolor Retrasado Después de un Accidente Automovilístico

Si recibió atención medica después de un accidente automovilístico y un medico de sala de emergencias o un proveedor médico privado le dio un certificado de buena salud, es posible que se sienta como si todo esta bien.  Sin embargo, es importante no ignorar los dolores o molestias que comienzan entre 24 a 72 horas después del accidente. 

Incluso si el daño a la propiedad es mínimo, es muy posible que haya sufrido lesiones que requieran la atención de un profesional médico. A menudo, lesiones menores pueden convertirse en problemas mayores si se dejan sin tratar. 

Imagínese, por ejemplo, un cartón de huevos. A primera vista el cartón puede verse perfectamente bien, pero una inspección mas detallada puede mostrar que los huevos están quebrados o rotos, a pesar de que el empaque no está dañado.

Estos son algunas síntomas comunes o dolores retardado que se pueden experimentar después de un accidente automovilístico:

  • Dolor de cabeza – Un dolor de cabeza persistente puede ser una indicación de una lesión en el cuello y la cabeza, o incluso peor, una concusión. En algunos casos, un dolor de cabeza puede significar un hematoma o coágulo de sangre que puede ser fatal si el individuo no recibe atención medica lo suficientemente pronto. 
  • Entumecimiento – Si empieza a perder sensación en las manos o brazos, es posible que este experimentando las secuelas del daño a su medula espinal, cuello y/o espalda.  
  • Dolor abdominal intenso – Dolor abdominal persistente y/o intenso puede indicar hemorragia interna, lo cual requiere tratamiento de emergencia.
  • Dificultad de coordinación y cambios de personalidad – Las lesiones cerebrales traumáticas después de accidente automovilístico son muy comunes. Las concusiones y otro tipo de lesiones cerebrales, como una contusión o una lesión cerebral adquirida, pueden afectar la manera en que el cerebro transmite las señales al cuerpo o puede causar daños al cerebro que se manifiestan de raras maneras, como cambios de personalidad.
  • Latigazo cervical – El latigazo cervical es una de las lesiones de cuello más comunes que sufren las personas en accidentes automovilísticos debido al rápido moviendo de atrás para adelante del cuello que sucede cuando un vehículo choca con gran fuerza contra otro.  El latigazo es una de esas heridas que pueden aparecer horas e incluso días después de un accidente. 

Afortunadamente, la mayoría de los accidentes automovilístico no son fatales, pero incluso un accidente menor puede tener un gran impacto de largo plazo en la salud mental de un individuo. Muchas personas desarrollan ansiedad o fobias de manejo.  Es incluso común para muchos desarrollar estrés postraumático en el que reviven el accidente una y otra vez en su mente. Muchos estudios han demostrado que incluso los niños que han estado involucrados en un accidente de auto tienden a desarrollar ansiedad y estrés postraumático debido al evento. Usualmente estas lesiones mentales no se manifiestan hasta varias semanas después del accidente.    

¿Cuánto Tiempo Tiene Para Ver a un Doctor Después de Un Accidente? 

Es importante ver a un doctor lo más pronto posible si ha estado involucrado en un accidente automovilístico. Si salió del accidente sintiéndose bien y no fue a un hospital, debería considerar la posibilidad de ser examinado en una clínica de urgencia o su doctor primario. 

Busque Compensación por Lesiones de Accidentes de Auto

Alex Casas and his team knew just the right approach for my suit and handled it with tact and care. Alex is one of the nicest lawyers I've met - no ego-- no pontificating -- no showing us how important he was. Alex got right down to business, with a smile on his face, and completed our claim quickly, achieving the results we wanted. Thank you, Alex, Susie and Staff.

"A steady, reassuring and calming voice when you need it most." Alex Casas and his team are great. My situation was very complicated since I was dealing with a number of insurance companies and multiple hospital bills! The team at Casas Law worked with all the various factors and made everything seamless as well as keeping me informed the whole way. I would not have known how to maneuver the insurance waters so I was very glad that Alex was there for me. I would highly recommend Casas Law, Alex, Susie and the whole team.

Alex and his team were my rock after I was hit by a car while riding my bike. They were able to direct me with medical care questions, advocate on my behalf with insurance companies, and really listen on days where I had pain and was completely frustrated with my insurance company and their lack of response. Highly recommend!!!!

Alex Casas was referred to me by a friend who spoke highly of him and his work. As I met with him I quickly realized my friend was right. He was knowledgeable, personable, truthful and had my family's best interest. His compassion and patience before, during, and after my case sets him and his staff apart from other law offices. Those qualities are hard to come by. When you hire him you will find for yourself.
