Common Injury Symptoms After a Car Accident
Automobile accidents happen all too often across the country. In fact, in Florida alone, the 2018 total number of auto accidents came in at 403,626 - resulting in a total of 236,157 injuries. What’s even more shocking than these totals is the fact that many of these individuals never seek out auto injury treatment.
Why You Need to Seek Out Car Accident Treatment
While most car accidents are considered insignificant (think fender benders), they are still something to take seriously. Walking away from an accident with no injury is very unlikely, especially considering many of the most common injury symptoms after an accident doesn’t show up until a few hours and even days after the fact.
For example, conditions such as whiplash often don’t start to show symptoms for at least 24 hours after the accident. When left untreated, whiplash can lead to long-term damage to the muscles and ligaments in your neck and shoulder, along with increasing your risk of developing chronic headaches.
Common Injury Symptoms to Know Following a Car Accident
If you or a loved one are not sure whether or not to seek out car accident treatment, then you’ll want to educate yourself on the symptoms you need to watch out for. If you aren’t seeking out immediate auto accident treatment, then you’ll want to do so as soon as you start noticing symptoms.
Common injury symptoms include:
- Pain: can be located anywhere in the body, especially in the head, neck, shoulders, and/or back
- Ringing in the ears
- Blurred vision
- Unexplained mood/behavior changes: including depression and/or anxiety
- Unexplained fatigue
- Changes in physical function: such as a loss in the overall range of motion in the neck or extremities
