Jacksonville Jaguar’s running back, Leonard Fournette, was involved in a car accident Tuesday, the week leading up to their AFC Championship game against the New England Patriots. Following the accident, Jacksonville’s head coach, Doug Marrone said this:
“You know what I always say about car accidents? It’s one of those things. You can get into a car accident and feel pretty good, (and) two days later, you wake up and I don’t know…I never put that past car accidents.”
The pain you experience following an accident isn’t necessarily instantaneous. It could take a day, or even two, to fully feel the effects of your injuries. This delay is attributed to the adrenaline rush you experience during impact. During a collision, adrenaline and endorphins flood your body. Once those chemicals subside and the body stabilizes, areas of muscular damage begin to experience inflammation. According to State Farm Insurance…
“Check for injuries. Remember that your adrenaline rush can mask symptoms. If you or anyone involved might be injured, call an ambulance immediately.”1
If you’ve been in an accident and are experiencing delayed symptoms, consult your doctor. Questions about what to do next? At Taylor King Law we understand car wrecks, and we’re available 24/7 at 1 (800) CAR WRECK. We’ll be glad to answer your questions.
