Often when people have been involved in car accidents, they either do not know they are injured or try to ignore symptoms, hoping they will get better. It is important to understand the symptoms associated with car accident injuries, as early medical treatment is vital to a healthy future.
Some of the most common symptoms of car accidents, which might signal larger problems, include:
- Pain in the back or spine – It’s very common to have soreness and stiffness after an accident because of the way your body is jostled during a wreck. However, don’t ignore pain in your back or spine. These are delicate areas of the body that can develop extensive problems if injuries are not appropriately treated. Pay special attention to impaired mobility or visual disturbances.
- Pain in the neck or shoulders – If you’re experiencing neck and shoulder pain after a car accident, you should also seek medical treatment. These are signs you might have whiplash, which can lead to larger problems down the road if you are not proactive.
- Mental and emotional distress – Car accident victims can develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) because of the trauma of car wrecks. PTSD is a serious medical condition that requires treatment. If you are having trouble sleeping, feel depressed or anxious, or feel like you’re having difficulty moving forward from the crash, seek help from a medical professional right away.
