Health is the primary concern after a motor vehicle accident.
After a car accident, the decision to visit a doctor is sometimes apparent because of severe injuries such as head trauma or fractures. Although paramedics often visit the scene to assess injuries, some injuries, such as soft tissue damage and whiplash, may not manifest until a victim gets home. It is essential to keep an eye on personal health in the days after a car crash.
Millions of Americans visit the emergency department annually for accident-related injuries, and less than 10% of these visits result in hospital admission.
