An auto accident is a very harrowing experience for the sufferers and their near and dear ones. It not only leads to physical injuries, but also causes severe mental trauma that may last for years after the accident. See an orthopedic surgeon after an accident to help treat any injuries.
Auto Accidents are a common cause of death in the United States (1). A few common causes of auto-accidents are distracted driving, speeding, reckless driving or driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, crossing beyond stop signs, late night driving, wrong lane driving or abrupt lane changes, driving too close or not keeping safe distance, driving in snow, rain or fog, driving when fatigued etc. Distracted driving indicates inattention while driving. This can include fatigue, physical and mental ill health of the driver (2).
Auto accidents can lead to injuries ranging from a simple abrasion to minor fractures to life threatening injuries. The major injuries if unattended within a set few hours, can lead to lifelong impairments.
One must bear in mind that often injuries are not felt or detected immediately. There are certain hormones called endorphins which are released after the shock of an accident. These endorphins along with the shock of the jolt felt due to the accident act as painkillers and because of this the victim fails to feel the injury or pain right away. The symptoms like pain, giddiness, distress etc. are often felt a few days later after the initial shock phase is over. These can be detected earlier if one visits an auto accident orthopedist without delay. He will do a thorough check-up to detect any injury caused by the accident.
