    The symptoms of bus accident injuries

    If you’ve had a bus accident, there’s no doubt you’ll know about it. There’s no mistaking the symptoms of bus accident injuries if you’ve been involved in a collision with another vehicle, after all. However, the symptoms of bus accident injuries can be hidden in some cases.

    The symptoms of bus accident injuries

    The hidden symptoms you may experience after a bus accident can include the following:

    • Whiplash
    • Torn ligaments and tendons
    • Trauma
    • Internal injuries

    You’ll recognise the idea of whiplash as a hidden symptom. Whiplash is one of those fairly common injuries caused by the head rocking forwards or backwards, suddenly and violently. At the time of the accident, you may only feel a twinge. Unfortunately, when you wake up the next day you may not be able to move your neck at all.

    This is true of other torn or badly stretched ligaments and tendons. If you’ve had a bus accident and fallen or been thrown, you may pick yourself up and feel a little bit sore. However, the next day, the swelling and the extent of your injuries are all too apparent.

    Internal injuries can also be an issue if you don’t get yourself properly checked out by a medical expert after your bus accident. You may have bumped your head and had a bit of a headache, but head injuries often take time to get worse. Bleeding and bruising can be a deadly factor if left untreated.

    Trauma is the final hidden symptom. You’ve probably heard of post-traumatic stress disorder. Many people who have been involved in accidents suffer from PTSD, and require counselling or therapy in the aftermath. Psychological injury can take a long time to heal.

    Taken into consideration, all of these hidden symptoms demonstrate exactly how important it is to have yourself properly checked over by a doctor after an accident.
