Everyone who experiences a car accident should receive a medical assessment from a doctor, even if they do not have visible injuries. Some victims emerge from the wreck without any visible injuries and feeling no pain, which they assume means the accident didn't hurt them. Unfortunately, many injuries that do not cause immediate pain can cause serious long-term complications. Worse than that, some injuries that do not cause pain can even become fatal.
