Flintshire is one of several counties in Wales, and it probably won’t surprise you to learn this is where the town of Flint can be found. It used to be the county town of Flintshire, and has a population of just under 13,000 people. Some areas are busier than others, but anywhere you find cars on the roads has a slim chance of seeing the odd accident now and then. A car accident in Flint is therefore a rarity, but you never know whether you might be the unlucky one to be caught up in something like this.
Car accidents can be anything from a very minor shunt, maybe in slow-moving traffic or in a car park, to something more serious that occurs when one or more vehicles collide when they are travelling at speed. This means there is a chance you may end up being injured even if you are not going very fast. And even if you do all you can to be a safe driver, you cannot account for the actions of other people.
Some injuries that can occur in a car accident
You may already be thinking of whiplash – one of the most common injuries to happen in car accidents. Maybe you already know how painful this can be, purely because you too have received this injury when struck by another car. But other injuries can occur too, even in a minor car accident.
Bruising from the seat belt is very common, and can be tender and painful. Other injuries can include bruising to other parts of your body if you are flung against the door, or hit your knee on the front panel of the interior of the car. If the windscreen is broken, you may receive cuts, and broken bones or internal bleeding might also be a possibility in some instances. Whatever happens, you should take the time to get checked out at a minor injury or casualty unit, to ensure no unnoticed injuries are not seen.
