I didn’t start feeling any pain until 2 days after my accident and didn’t tell the police officer I was hurt. Is that going to be a problem?

Though we are Virginia personal injury attorneys and therefore cannot give you medical advice, it is often the case where a person won’t realize that they are injured until after several hours have passed.  Most doctors will tell you that in soft-tissue injuries (sprains and strains) the pain actually will get a bit worse before it starts getting better.  Even if you didn’t tell the police officer you were hurt, you still should seek medical treatment, and you still can get recovery for your injuries.  Just don’t delay any further, and make sure you see a medical professional as soon as possible.
