Common Injuries in a Motor Vehicle Accident

Seek Immediate Medical Treatment After Involvement In A Motor Vehicle Crash

Accidents involving motor vehicles usually involve a lot of energy, and when two or more vehicles come together, the resulting crash can wreak havoc on the car, truck or motorcycle involved. The drivers and passengers riding with them are often injured. Many times, Ohio accident victims are shaken up, but don’t feel that they need medical attention. Many injuries and the effects of these incidents don’t show up at first, and this can have dangerous and expensive consequences.

For example, you might have banged your head and while dazed for a few moments feel otherwise ok now. You refuse medical treatment, but in the next day or two start having headaches and problems focusing your attention. Friends and loved ones may notice a change in your personality, and once easy tasks become complicated for you. You were injured, and might have prevented further complications if you had elected to seek immediate medical treatment.

Other injuries take weeks, months, even years to present fully. Some back and neck injuries may feel alright at first, but six months later severe pain begins to develop, and the damage to the disks and related nerves doesn’t manifest until several months after your accident. It is important to seek immediate medical treatment to ensure your safety, and to document injuries and to provide a medical and legal remedy for future developments.
