The Most Common Injuries in Car Accidents
Posted on Monday, June 7th, 2021 at 9:21 pm
When you have been in a car accident, it can result in injuries all over your body. Some of these injuries can cause permanent damage and prevent you from living your life to the fullest. While some injuries can be minor and take days to heal, others can take years, and some may never mend.
Hurt Upon Impact
Smaller injuries like minor cuts heal more quickly than more serious issues. If you are in an accident, you will likely experience cuts on your body, and you may notice deep lacerations. These injuries will need stitches, and some require surgery. That is where it stops being a minor issue and becomes something more major.
Broken bones can occur in an accident as well. Like lacerations, you can find that while some broken bones heal quickly, others will require surgery to prevent permanent damage. In most cases, however, you will need to wear a cast for a few weeks.
There are times when the force of the car collision will cause significant damage. Internal bleeding can develop and needs immediate treatment as it can be fatal. The unfortunate truth is that with internal bleeding, the chances are high that you will have complications later.
Your neck and back are two other areas that will be affected. In particular, your spine and neck could suffer from the impact. Whiplash, paralysis, and nerve damage are potentially life-threatening injuries. Even if you get the proper medical care, you may still find that you have issues later, such as turning your head correctly. When you seek medical care for injuries sustained in a car accident, be sure to get clear explanations from medical professionals about your condition and the long-term medical damage that has occurred.
