After a minor accident, you may think there is no reason to see a doctor. You may feel like you haven’t sustained an injury, or that your injuries are too minor to seek treatment, but no matter how minor the accident, you should always seek treatment immediately.
We recommend always seeking medical attention because it is important to be certain that you don’t have any underlying injuries that don’t present symptoms right away. In fact, after experiencing trauma, your body may be still in shock from the release of adrenaline, and you may not even feel existing injuries.
The impact associated with a car crash can put a huge stress on your body. The human body is not built to withstand such a rough shock, and usually this can result in serious injury. Even in car crashes that happen at low speed, injuries are very common. Because of the surprise factor that happens in an accident, you usually do not have time to prepare or brace yourself for impact, which means that passengers and drivers alike will often suffer from soft tissue injuries such as whiplash. This comes from the violent jerking of the neck and body in different directions.
