If you get into a crash, you may be lucky enough to escape with only minor injuries – perhaps just a few scrapes and bruises. However, even if you believe that your injuries are minor, you should still see a doctor as soon as possible after an accident of any kind. Seemingly minor injuries could be signs of much more serious health problems. Also, due to the shock and adrenaline that a crash triggers, a person may not realize that he or she has suffered severe harm that may have a long-term impact.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than three million people are injured each year in vehicle accidents across the country. The different injuries resulting from a car accident can be as varied as the individual circumstances of each collision, but there are some types of injuries that are more common than others.
After a car accident, getting medical care can become a tricky situation if a number of different insurance policies are in place. Injured parties are often unsure which insurance coverage to use to pay medical bills and other health care costs, and it may even be unclear whether their standard health insurance will cover car accident injuries.
