Thousands of people are injured in Kentucky auto accidents every year. These victims are at risk for experiencing a wide range of injuries. If you witness an accident, it’s important to recognize that not all serious injuries are visible on the body. Some of the most severe injuries are sustained internally, like medical shock.
When the body goes into shock, it means the organs aren’t getting enough blood or oxygen. This can lead to permanent organ damage or death, if not treated quickly. Even if you don’t have medical training, there are things you can do if you recognize shock symptoms.
