Get Treated Quickly
If you have been in a vehicular accident, even if it occurred at slow speeds, it is important to be examined by a physician as soon as possible. Injuries like whiplash might not show symptoms for hours, days, or even longer. You might be injured and not even know it.
The longer you wait for treatment after you are injured, the longer it may take to recover. Medical professionals tend to agree that the first 72 hours after an accident are the most critical time for effective treatment.
