When most people think of car accident related injuries, they think of whiplash.
Whiplash is undoubtedly the most common injury to people involved in car accidents – especially rear end collisions. However, there are many other injuries you may sustain; such as minor cuts, scrapes and bruises. More severe injuries include herniated discs, joint injuries, broken bones, head trauma, internal bleeding, and many others.
Whatever condition or pain you may be feeling, it is very important to be treated for your injuries. Just to be safe, have a doctor examine you for any underlying problems that you may not be fully aware of. Don’t make the mistake of not treating your condition. You may end up suffering from dull chronic pain, because you thought your neck or back pain would simply go away or you did not have the time to have yourself checked out. Seek care immediately if you have been involved in an accident, you never know what complications could arrive weeks, months, or even years after a car accident.
