Road Crash Sustenance of Underlying Injuries
There would be no surprises if persons involved in a recent car crash sustained injuries, naturally, car crash has accounted for more than 1.3 million deaths out of 13 million car crashes that happens every year. Ignoring the car crash context, it goes without saying that occupants in the vehicle would sustain notable injuries as car's weight including the momentum would equate to distribution of high amount of force and this force would go up against hard surfaces or another moving object (another car), would mean casualties and if lucky enough, injuries.
When an accident occurs, it is not uncommon for the occupants to sustain injuries, an injury sustained may vary as internal and external injuries. External injuries such as road rash and severed limbs are some examples, doctors can instantly identify them as such because they are visibly there. While, internal bodily injury can often go undetected by a person who has sustained these types of wounds because they don't always present symptoms that are obvious on the outside. Internal bleeding affects thousands per day in automobile accidents and other incidents like this one. These kinds of injuries are more dangerous than external ones due to their lack of visibility without medical help or modern tech devices and might be left uncheck and tend to develop complications that are hard to prevent than external injuries.
Internal injuries examples are; fractures on limbs and ribs, internal bleeding, damage of organs, hemorrhage, outer brain bleedings, traumatic brain injuries and neurological problems. Internal injuries oftentimes are overlooked since symptoms of such fatal health conditions usually apprears delayed for like days or a week or so and people thought they are safe and left unscatthed from the recent accident they are in and mostly likes to avoid spending a dime on their health so their post-accident health standing is not assessed and leaving them clueless.
Losing consciousness after a car accident is often an indication of internal injuries. Common symptoms of internal injuries can range from:
Others are: difficulty in swallowing, coughing up blood or vomit, abdominal pain and dizziness - all without showing any external signs such as bruising on the skin that are as well life-threatening. It's uncommon yet dangerous for individuals experiencing these symptoms following a collision with another vehicle not only see their physician but also contact law enforcement who may be able to collect more information about how serious it was in order for them to make decisions accordingly like filing an injury claim.
