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 …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
