In case of a car accident there are high probabilities that it will result in some kind of physical injury. Some injuries are minor like cuts or scrapes, while some are serious ones like fractures, permanent disabilities or death.
It is not possible to detect all injuries after the accident since diagnosis becomes difficult due to unclear symptoms.
Immediate medical care will most probably be provided in case of serious injuries. It is advisable to give full cooperation to the doctors attending to you or your loved ones and provide them information about any ongoing medication or medical condition like diabetes, blood pressure, etc.
Some injuries like whiplash and concussions are hidden and don’t have any severe diagnosable symptoms. Whiplash, unless very serious, cannot be diagnosed by machines. Concussion ranges from mild to severe and its symptoms also change accordingly. The trick is in identifying and getting timely help.
At the time of collision during an accident, apparent injuries like bruising; bleeding due to lacerations or cuts; or fractures are immediately attended to. Injuries that are just as serious but less obvious also need medical care and must be diagnosed as soon as medically possible.
