Internal Injuries Commonly Sustained in Oklahoma City Car Accidents

By Car Accident Help on December 26, 2012

Immediately following an Oklahoma car accident, it is important to assess the situation and determine if anyone was hurt. If someone is bleeding or complaining of pain, you must notify the authorities and remain at the scene of the crash. Many injuries, such as lacerations and bone fractures, are readily apparent in the wake of a crash. There are a number of injuries, however, that are internal and much more difficult to diagnose. Unfortunately, internal injuries often go unnoticed until after they have already caused substantial harm.

There are many ways in which drivers and passengers can suffer internal injuries. Occupants who are not wearing a seatbelt may be thrown within the vehicle upon impact, while properly secured passengers may suffer severe trauma when the seatbelt holds them in place. Others may be struck by a seat, windshield, dashboard, parts from another vehicle, or a flying object.

There are several types of injuries that can cause serious damage to internal organs. An abdominal aorta aneurysm, for example, is a rupture to the abdominal aorta caused by a compressed stomach. This type of injury is often fatal. Victims can also suffer broken ribs, which can result in a puncture injury to the lungs or major blood vessels. Many occupants involved in major collisions suffer from internal bleeding. This is when blood vessels in the body cannot repair themselves. Victims of internal bleeding may begin to feel fatigued, lightheaded, or cold.

The experienced Oklahoma City car accident injury attorneys at the Maples Law Firm help victims of accidents get the support they need for their medical bills and other significant expenses after a serious car accident. We offer free consultations at (888) 226-6159 to anyone who has suffered an injury in an auto accident.
