Car accident injury severity not always immediately apparent

Drivers who are injured in auto accidents may not always feel that their injuries warrant immediate medical attention. The severity of a car accident injury may not always be immediately apparent. Those in New York who feel that their seemingly minor injuries are actually worse than they thought should seek medical care as soon as possible.

Recently, a man suffered injuries in a crash in Salina. His vehicle was reportedly struck nearly head-on by an oncoming vehicle whose driver crossed the center line. A woman in her 60s was behind the wheel of that car; sadly, she suffered critical injuries and died at the hospital soon after the incident. The victim -- a 59-year-old male -- suffered unspecified injuries but refused immediate treatment.

Police are still in the process of investigating this crash. The road near the accident scene was closed for several hours to allow rescue teams, investigators and clean up crews to work. At this time, it is unclear what caused the woman to cross into oncoming traffic.

While the victim in this particular crash did not seek medical attention right away, if his injuries turn out to be worse than expected he may require extensive medical testing, treatments and possibly rehabilitative care to assist him in his recovery process. When one suffers a car accident injury in New York or elsewhere due to the negligence of another party, he or she may be entitled to compensation for any resulting losses. While the driver believed responsible for this particular crash failed to survive, the victim may still be able to pursue civil claims against her estate in an effort to seek financial relief.
