Some injuries that may not be obvious right after an accident. Some people suffer internal injuries that can take a couple of days or even weeks before they start manifesting.
When such injuries are not treated right away, they may end up becoming worse and cause serious problems for you. You may assume that you are suffering from a simple headache, whereas the underlying issue could be a head injury that requires medical attention.
Different Types of Car Accident Injuries
Motor vehicle accidents can cause a wide variety of injuries. Some common ones include the following:
– Head Injuries: These are far-reaching and may include internal bleeding, brain injuries, fracture of the skull, and more. These are injuries that require immediate medical attention. Many victims of car accidents suffer concussions, or mild traumatic brain injuries.
– Neck and Spinal Injuries: Depending on the impact of the collision, you may end up with whiplash, spinal cord fracture, sprains, herniated discs and strains, among others.
– Soft Tissue Injuries: These include injuries to muscles, tendons, and ligaments, which may be torn or stretched.
– Broken Bones: After a car crash, you may end up with broken bones, which can be a painful experience that will limit your movement and may take quite some time to recover.
As soon as an accident happens, you should see a medical professional right away. Even if you are not feeling any pain, it is important to have every part of your body checked to determine that all is well.
