What Happened?


Signs of Infant Injuries Following Car Crash

Car accidents are unfortunate circumstances that seem to happen to everyone at some point. They can not only cause damage to your car or another vehicle, but they can also cause traumatic injuries to you and the passengers in your car. Doctors have routine assessments that they will use for people who get into car accidents, but most of their assessments are based on where the pain is on the body and the degree of pain that is being experienced.

When it comes to infants though, they are not able to convey what kind of pain they are having or where it hurts. So how do you know if an infant is in pain? How do you know if your child or an infant may be suffering from a serious injury?
