Moving Forward After Life-Altering Injuries
There are so many injuries a victim can suffer in a car wreck, ranging from minor irritations to life-altering injuries. When a family is facing a severe health crisis, there can be extreme financial upset. There are times when there is financial devastation alongside the physical injuries and emotional distress. After a life-altering injury in Pennsylvania or New Jersey, talk to a qualified Bucks County personal injury lawyer in order to recover the highest compensation possible.
Severe Abdominal Injuries
When there is major abdominal harm in a car crash, they can be life-threatening injuries. It is an emergency should there be any penetration to the abdominal area or chest area. With so many internal organs at risk, penetrations can be fatal. After all, people need a functioning lung, liver, heart, and kidneys. There are also times when bowel or major blood vessel injuries can lead to fatalities.
Penetrating wounds may require extensive surgeries and these complicated procedures come with a high medical expense. Of course, you need to have all your health issues addressed. When the bills come, compensation can help to alleviate expenses.
And there are times when a broken bone, such as a broken rib can cause damage to internal organs. There may need to be multiple surgeries and physical therapy in order for bones broken in sensitive, vulnerable areas to heal.
A wound that is immediately seen is addressed right away, but there can be hidden abdominal harm as well, such as seat belt syndrome. It is possible for a person to have delayed symptoms when they are suffering from seat belt syndrome. Basically, this is when extreme force does harm to a person’s abdomen or chest because of the seatbelt. This can result in internal bleeding.
Traumatic Brain and Head Injuries
Head and brain injuries are, unfortunately, common when it comes to car crashes. Sometimes, they are overlooked and the results of them not being addressed immediately can be fatal. While an open wound is easy to see, the sudden jarring of the brain and resulting harm may not be noticed.
Some symptoms of traumatic brain injuries include the following:
- Disorientation and confusion
- Loss of consciousness
- Persistent or painful headaches
- Depression or anxiety
- Loss of sense of smell
- Ear ringing or noise sensitivity
If you experience any symptoms, contact a healthcare professional right away.
