Do Not Ignore Tingling or Numbness After a Sarasota Auto Accident!
If you have numbness, pins-and-needles, or tingling sensations in your limbs after a crash, you should go immediately to the hospital to seek medical care. Many people don’t immediately think “serious injury” when feeling these sensations, but perhaps they should. Because tingling and numbness can mean nerve damage, pelvic fracture, herniated disc injury, fractured vertebrae, or any type of back, spine, or vertebrae injury. If you feel tingling or numbness in your limbs, then it is critical that you get a physical examination.
When there is a strange pins-and-needles, tingling, or numbness sensation in your groin, legs, or arms, it could indicate that a serious injury has occurred. Sometimes these signs accompany injuries in which damage to internal organs or internal bleeding has occurred. For this reason, it is wise to always go to the hospital after any type of Sarasota car accident.
There are two main benefits to seeking medical treatment immediately after a wreck:
- Your health – Your well-being should be your main priority. Don’t ignore pain or any strange or different feeling after a crash.
- Your case – You may have a potential personal injury claim against the other driver involved. If you don’t go to the doctor immediately, the insurance company may not consider your injuries compensable.
Whether a low-velocity accident or high-impact crash occurs, do yourself a favor and seek medical treatment so that proper tests can be taken to identify a catastrophic injury or rule out a life-threatening injury.
