Never Ignore Injuries from a Traffic Accident
Car accidents resulted in about 4.8 million medically-checked injuries in a recent year in the U.S. Sometimes, car accident injuries are obvious and victims need immediate medical care. Other times, victims might feel a little disoriented, stiff, or sore, and they might decide to wait it out before seeking medical treatment.
You might think your injuries are too minor or that they will clear up on their own, only to feel worsening symptoms over the next few days. It is always wise to get possible symptoms checked out right away following an accident. Don’t ignore possible injuries, and always seek help from a Beverly Hills car accident lawyer.
You should take any blow to the head or forceful shaking seriously. A concussion originates from head trauma and may result in long-term complications like defective memory, personality problems, and depression.
Some of the tell-tale symptoms include:
- Ringing in the ears
Although long-term complications are rare, seeking immediate medical attention is the safest approach if you feel anything unusual following your accident.
You should not ignore any post-accident abdominal pain, whether minor or severe. Instead, prioritize seeking medical attention. Abdominal pains signify an underlying problem like internal bleeding, organ rupture, or blood vessel damage. If left untreated, it could lead to chronic illness or death.
Depending on the severity, it’s possible to suffer a fracture without realizing it. If a body part becomes deformed or accompanied by pain, swelling, or bruising, it could indicate a possible fracture.
The possible risks of untreated fractures include nerve damage, arthritis, deformity, blood clots, and death.
