Being involved in a car accident is a terrifying and disorienting experience. Injuries suffered due to one's involvement in a car accident may range from bruises and soreness to serious internal injuries. In some cases, the full extent of an individual’s injuries may not be fully apparent until days or weeks after an accident.
In the wake of a car accident, an individual is likely to feel shaken up and may not be able to think clearly or rationally. However, in order to protect oneself, it's important to take certain steps immediately following an accident.
