Accident injuries are bodily harm from an unexpected event. Sports injuries, work-related injuries, and car crash injuries are some examples.
Any type of accidental injury needs a medical evaluation. Even if you don’t have visible wounds or feel any pain, getting an exam following your accident ensures you get the care you need right away.
For example, you may not feel pain after a minor fender bender because your adrenaline masks the discomfort. But as the adrenaline wears off hours after the accident, you may start to feel stiffness or pain in your neck or back.
You can injure any body part during an accident. Common accident injuries include:
