In brief: Undiagnosed injury
It is not uncommon to have injuries to the wrist go undiagnosed after a car accident, especially if there were other injuries involved.
If there is still significant pain after 8 weeks, you should probably be examined by a specialist to rule out a significant latent injury.

In brief: Evaluation
After car accidents, there can be injuries to muscles and ligaments supporting joints, like wrists and the neck.
If you have no strength in your hand, you should have an evaluation by your doctor to see if there was a nerve injury.
