How to Know if You Were Injured in a Traffic Accident?

This sounds like an odd question because you would assume that anyone involved in a traffic accident would know if that person sustained an injury. However, this is not always the case. After an accident, you may believe that you are “okay” because you do not feel any immediate pain or have any visible signs of harm. However, this does not always mean that you escaped the crash without any injuries. Traffic accidents, including pedestrian, bicycle, and motorcycle crashes, can be violent and cause injuries that are not immediately known to the victim. Some injuries may have delayed symptoms. Therefore, you should always see a doctor after any accident, regardless of whether you feel fine or you believe the accident was “minor.” Even low-impact accidents can cause debilitating injuries.

According to the CDC, TBIs are a major cause of disability and death in the United States contributing to about 30 percent of the injury deaths. A TBI can result in a minor concussion or severe brain damage. Repeated mild concussions have been associated with an increased risk of some diseases including Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. Many TBIs are caused by personal injury accidents that are the result of the negligence or recklessness of other parties. Below are examples of accidents that can result in a TBI.
