Some symptoms don’t show up for days, or even weeks, after an accident. If you ignore an injury, it could develop chronic conditions that take a longer time to heal.
Early warning signs or symptoms of a personal injury :
- Joint Pain (if it lasts more than 48 hours, then get a professional diagnosis)

- Stiffness and Tenderness
- Reduced range of motion in a joint
