Common Auto Accident Injury
The most common auto accident injury is whiplash. It occurs when a sudden change in direction causes a violent “whipping” motion of the head. With the average weight of a human head being 12 pounds, it is no wonder that this trauma causes damage the fragile structures and soft tissues of the neck.
Other areas of soft tissue are also at risk of injury during an auto accident. This often includes the hands, fingers, toes, feet, and wrists. This is because these areas often absorb a large amount of the impact during auto collisions which causes damage and trauma to these areas.
Common complaints after an auto accident include issues such as loss of mobility, tingling, loss of strength, burning, loss of strength, numbness, and pain. These symptoms can range from mild to severe and often do not present themselves until 24 or 48 hours after the collision that caused them. This delay can be caused by the shock of the accident or by the body’s release of natural pain fighting neurotransmitters.
Regardless of the reason, this delay can cause a difficulty receiving the insurance benefits to which you are entitled. In addition, delaying treatment until symptoms become apparent can limit the ability of that treatment to be as effective as it would otherwise be. That is why it is essential that treatment begin as soon as possible after the accident occurs.
