Identifying the Signs of Shock After a Car Wreck

Published on Apr 11, 2019 at 2:21 pm in Car Accidents.

When people think about car accident injuries, broken bones, lacerations, and burns often come to mind first. Not every injury is visible, however. Sometimes, the most dangerous injuries are the ones that impact the body and mind from the inside.

Immediately following a collision, it’s possible the people involved could go into a state of shock. This condition can be psychological or physical. While the psychological shock is likely to wear off within a few hours, the physical condition can result in serious complications, medical emergencies, and even death.

Most shock victims aren’t able to identify the signs of the condition themselves, so if you’ve been in a car accident being able to recognize the signs could save someone’s life. To understand the signs and symptoms associated with the condition, you first have to understand the different types of shock the body can go into.

It’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with Vancouver’s hit-and-run accident laws so you’re aware of what you’re supposed to do after a car accident and what the other person failed to do.
