WHY IS IT ESSENTIAL TO GET MEDICAL ASSISTANCE AFTER AN ACCIDENT?
Injuries from an accident can be minor (bruises) to major (paralysis). Sometimes we are not aware of the damage that has occurred. Consult our specialist, we will take care of you after properly diagnosing the condition.
A car crash’s impact can generate a lot of force, which can shock the body severely. The human body is not meant to withstand that kind of trauma, frequently resulting in a major injury. You may get hurt even in low-speed car accidents. Because of the violent jerking of the neck and body caused by the sudden collision, accident victims nearly always experience whiplash or another type of soft tissue injury.
Car accident injuries can take days or weeks to appear after the crash. The massive surge of adrenaline and endorphins our bodies experience during a traumatic event like an auto accident is one of the most frequent causes of delayed injury symptoms after an accident.
An accident’s adrenaline release can mask pain immediately after it occurs. Due to this, some people can feel immediate symptoms and others delayed pain and symptoms. Continue to monitor yourself following an accident and if you feel any pain, contact us.
Insurance companies require victims of auto accidents to see a doctor to have their injuries evaluated. If you don’t visit a doctor after an accident, you may lose access to a claim for compensation.
WHEN TO VISIT A DOCTOR
After an accident, you have 72 hours to see a doctor to file a compensation claim. Visit immediately if you are severely injured.
Common injuries related to car accidents are whiplash, soft tissue injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and back and neck injuries.
Whiplash :- Whiplash occurs when your neck moves backward and forward suddenly with great force. This results in strained neck or neck pain, back pain, and spine problems. The extent of damage is evaluated by an x-ray.
Soft tissue injuries :- Soft tissue injuries are injuries to the body’s soft areas such as muscles, tendons, and ligaments. They can cause pain and discomfort or soreness, swelling, bruising, and stiffness. Some examples of soft tissue injuries are sprains, contusions, and strains.
They can cause mobility issues if not treated in time. An x-ray can easily miss soft tissue damage. In addition, they could develop after the doctor has examined you for initial injuries. Consult us if you experience any soft tissue discomfort.
Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) :- Following are the symptoms of TBI :
- Balance issue
- Ringing in the ears
If you experience the above-mentioned symptoms, visit a doctor as soon as possible.
Back and neck injuries :- Most common injuries of car accidents are back and neck injuries. You can suffer fatal disc damage or painful injuries like sprains and fractures or feel soreness in the body. Symptoms may indicate serious underlying injuries, so do not ignore them.
Accident injuries like whiplash, TBI, and soft tissue injuries appear late. Whenever you experience them, talk to your doctor.
