Revealed: Car Crashes Can Cause Fatal Injuries With No Signs

A new study has revealed just how dangerous not getting checked out after a road accident can be. We’re sure a number of our readers have made this mistake in the past. You’ve been involved in a car accident. You check yourself for any injuries and find...nothing. There’s not a scratch on you. But in some cases, this can be worse than a bleeding wound. If a part of you is bleeding you are going to notice it eventually. But internal trauma can occur without any sign of an injury at all. Thanks to adrenaline you may not even experience any pain for some time. At which point it could very well be too late. So what steps should you take after being involved in a car accident?

Don’t Panic
It’s quite common for people to go into shock after a road accident. But this isn’t typically to do with an injury they’ve suffered. It’s just their body trying to deal with such a sudden occurrence. To prevent yourself from going into shock after an accident, regulate your breathing. Breathe in, count to ten and let it out. Do this at least five times until your heartbeat returns to a normal pace.

Check For Injuries
You must check yourself and anyone else in the car for any serious injuries. You may also want to check any other driver involved in the crash, particularly if they have been incapacitated. Remember, due to adrenaline it’s common not to feel a serious injury. You could have a large gash on your leg without realising it. That’s why you’ve got to check yourself and anyone else thoroughly.

Get A Professional Medical Opinion
It doesn’t matter if you think you’ve come out of the crash completely unscathed. You still need to get checked out by a doctor. It is going to feel completely pointless. But in this instance, it’s always better to act on the side of caution. If there is something wrong and there are no apparent signs, it could be serious. A concussion is common after a car accident due to the driver banging their head in the crash without realizing.

Don’t forget you’ve got to think about the legal side as well. You could have experienced a serious injury during the crash that has no signs. If the crash was caused by another driver, legally they are accountable. That injury might not affect you for some time after the crash. But it could still change your life. You might find yourself in constant chronic pain, caused by an unknown injury. If you don’t speak to a doctor, you’ll have no evidence this was due to a car accident. That’s why after you’ve seen a doctor you should always speak to a personal injury attorney and see where you stand.

Further Down The Road
Finally, it’s uncommon but not unknown for symptoms of an injury to develop weeks after a car accident. In this case, the victim simply hasn’t noticed the pain or symptom until it developed. At that point, you should still go see a doctor. You need to know exactly what’s wrong and whether it can be treated.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
