Well, we were rear-ended yesterday. The damage is minimal (probably just a new bumper), but we are all a bit stiff and sore. I know that I am and I was in the front driving. Seph was in the back in his carseat and must have taken more of a force than I did since he was a mere 3 feet from the impact. He says his back hurts 'worser' and that it feels like a bee sting. Other than that, he is running around like normal and not complaining. I am taking him to be checked out, but am obviously worried (probably overly so..). How long do you think I should wait to do anything with him regarding the insurance? They will pay his medical bills, but I don't want to settle too soo, but being a former claim rep, I don't want to drag this out either.
Any signs I should look for? His back muscles, along side his spine, look a little inflamed (they always are a bit, but seemed more tonight). It just scares me to think that a little thing like this could take time off his walking or even encourage scolosis due to weakening of the spine muscles.
Any thoughts or experiences would help! My guess is I need to not over-react....
