Vehicle collisions can cause serious exposure of shock to your body. Collision injuries might not be as clear right away. Endorphins act as painkillers for the pain. At first, it may seem as though the car accident didn’t cause any external to internal injury. A couple days later, you are prone to pain, dizziness, discomfort, and numbness. Car accidents can cause head injuries, neck injuries or sprains, jaw injuries, cervical bone dislocations, shoulder injuries, dislocations, spinal disc injuries, fractured ribs, and fractured bones. Whiplash and bruising are very common in accidents. It’s always good to visit a specialist to prevent further damage.
