A motor vehicle accident stopped traffic in both directions on the QEW on June 28. The two car motor vehicle accident happened at the middle of rush hour on a Thursday, adding to commuter woes but surprisingly, resulted in minor injuries only.
The accident involved a van and a sports car. The accident was violent enough that the van ended up on its side, wedged against the sports car in the middle of the busy highway. An air ambulance was said to have been called and later cancelled when the extent of the injuries was determined.
Minor motor vehicle Injuries – or not?
The occupants of both vehicles had luck on their side when it came to injury, but there are many injuries that can occur during a car accident that may not be immediately visible. That’s why it’s important to always seek medical treatment right away. Some types of injuries, such as whiplash or deep tissue damage, may not be present immediately following the accident. The symptoms may not appear for a day or more following the event.
As the victim of a car accident, you may not know the full extent of your injuries right away. It can take time for doctors to diagnose a car injury properly and determine whether it will lead to a permanent disability. Rather than waiting for this determination to be made and running the risk of losing the right to seek compensation for injuries and lost wages from the at-fault driver, an accident victim should contact a car accident lawyer right away.
