How your body reacts when you are in danger
When you’ve just been in an accident, you likely feel confused, overwhelmed, and possibly scared. Your mind is racing, wondering what happened, if you are okay, and what to do next. You might not know it, but your body reacts in certain ways that are designed to keep you safe.
When you’re in danger, your heart starts pumping faster to provide more nutrients and oxygen to your muscles to allow you to escape a threat. Your body also releases several chemicals, such as adrenaline, that dulls pain and gives you a boost of energy.
As a result of this “fight or flight” reaction, you may not be aware of injuries you have sustained during the accident, and you may not feel any pain until hours or even days later. Some hidden injuries, such as whiplash, can be severe. That’s why after an accident, it’s important to make a medical appointment for a full examination.
Many injuries are hidden.
There are many types of personal injuries you can have in an accident, but some of the most common types are:
- Broken bones
- Back injuries
- Psychological trauma
It’s important to remember that injuries you get in personal injury accidents may be hidden right after the accident. Symptoms may only appear hours or even days later, or perhaps not even then. It’s essential to get thoroughly checked out by a doctor after an accident, even if initially you think you are fine.
