Five Latent Injuries That Can Manifest a Few Days After a Car Accident
According to the Association for Safe International Road Travels, close to 2.35 million people suffer injuries in vehicle accidents every year. Though many car accident injuries are readily apparent, some injuries might not be immediately visible.*
Numerous car accident injuries can manifest symptoms after the crash, and they might be associated with vague symptoms. Five injuries caused by car accidents that are sometimes difficult to determine include:
Spinal or Cervical Injuries – Spinal and cervical injuries commonly occur during vehicle accidents because of the force of of collisions. For instance, during the violent motion of a crash, a person can easily experience their head propelling forward and back, resulting in a neck injury. An accident victim might not understand that whiplash occurred until well after the collision, but this can be a serious injury. In addition, the impact of a crash can cause rupturing or bulging of the spinal tissue, leading to disc or vertebrae injuries.
Knee and Shoulder Injuries – Car accident victims frequently experience knee and shoulder injuries that can be difficult to pinpoint and identify. A person’s body might collide with a portion of the vehicle, such as the door or dashboard. A victim might then notice general pain or stiffness in these places after an accident, and this pain should always be checked out by a medical professional.
Traumatic Brain Injuries – Brain injuries are some of the most serious of those that can occur in a car accident. They are also one of the most difficult injuries to diagnose. The symptoms of brain injury can start out mild and might mimic other problems, but left untreated, a traumatic brain injury can lead to serious health consequences.
