Do you know what to do after a car accident?

A car accident has the potential to cause a variety of injuries, some minor and others life-threatening. Some of the most common serious car crash injuries include:

  • Head trauma: This can range from a concussion to a traumatic brain injury among others. Any blow to the head can cause serious injury or death, so it requires immediate treatment.
  • Broken bones: Every bone in your body is at risk in a car accident. You could fracture your skull, break your collarbone or crush your knees and feet.
  • Lacerations: Depending on the type of accident, deep lacerations are a possibility. For example, if your head comes in contact with the windshield, lacerations on your face and head are possible.
  • Emotional distress: You can't see this injury, but it's serious. Emotional distress following an accident can make it difficult to operate a motor vehicle or ride in one in the future.

Many other types of injuries may occur during a motor vehicle accident. In fact, you may not even be aware that you were seriously injured until days or weeks later.

Why to seek medical treatment after any accident

Regardless of how you feel in the immediate aftermath of a crash, it's very important to consult a medical professional. Even if you feel fine, shock or adrenaline may be keeping you from feeling the pain caused by your injuries. This delayed onset of symptoms is common and can keep you from realizing the extent of your injuries.

There are other things you should do after an accident. Others may try to blame you for the motor vehicle collision. This is why it is important to do such things as taking photos, writing down your memories of what happened and keeping track of all your expenses and time missed from work. Most importantly, don't talk to anyone else's insurance company before talking to a legal professional about your options.
