Have you been injured by a traffic accident?
Although many vehicles have safety features which are designed to protect drivers and passengers, people can still sustain injuries if an accident occurs. Even if the safety features work exactly as they should, they aren’t always enough to prevent serious injuries from occurring.
Of course, other types of road users may not have the protection of any safety features should an accident occur. People travelling on public transport, for example, won’t be protected from a collision by airbags and many buses may not even have seatbelts to help restrain people in the event of a collision.
Similarly, if you’re a cyclist or motorcyclist, you may have limited protection in the event of an accident and you could face serious harm should an accident occur.
When collisions happen, people assume that they can tell how bad it is straight away. Whilst you may get an idea of the type of injuries people have sustained, it can be difficult to predict the long term effects of being involved in a car accident.
What injuries did you sustain?
The long term effects of being involved in a car accident normally depend on the type of injuries you’ve suffered. Cuts and minor lacerations, for example, may require minimal treatment and be healed within a matter of days or weeks.
On the other hand, a serious injury could require months of treatment and could leave you with permanent symptoms.
Dealing with the long term effects of being involved in a car accident
It’s important to get the help you need after a car accident or collision. This may involve immediate medical treatment, follow-up physical rehabilitation and even assistance with any psychological symptoms you’ve developed.
Of course, this can sometimes come at a cost and you may be worried that you won’t be able to afford the assistance you need after an accident.
