Your head and neck are especially vulnerable during an automobile accident. The experts estimate that 14% of all traumatic brain injuries occur during a car accident when your head strikes the windshield or dashboard.
However, auto accidents cause many potentially serious injuries, including:
You may also develop widespread body pain even if you don’t have a specific injury.
You might not have an obvious injury, but you should still see a doctor as soon as possible for two important reasons.
First, you may have delayed symptoms. As a result, you may return to your normal activities with an unknown injury, yet continuing to stay active puts you at risk for further damage. Delayed symptoms are common following a concussion, whiplash, and back injuries.
The second reason you need to get a thorough exam is because you need to document your accident for workers’ compensation and insurance purposes.
Workers’ compensation covers your medical and rehabilitation expenses when your automobile accident occurs in the course of your normal job duties.
