Motor vehicles injuries occur when people suffer trauma as the result of a motor vehicle collision. Examples include two cars colliding, a car hitting a lamppost, and a car hitting a pedestrian. Symptoms of motor vehicle injuries depend on the site and severity of the injury in addition to a wide array of other factors. That being said, emotional trauma is typically associated with motor vehicle injuries, and some people can become fearful of driving or riding in vehicles for a period of time following an accident. Treatment of motor vehicle injuries again depends on the type of injury or condition; however, physical therapy is common following most muscle or bone traumas as therapists can help individuals relearn functions imperative for everyday life such as walking, lifting, bending, stooping, and caring for oneself.
