Get Immediate Medical Treatment Following a Crash
When an individual is involved in an accident, he or she may experience a rush of adrenaline causing their pain to be delayed for hours or even days. This delay can often result in death or serious life-threatening injuries. For this reason, anyone involved in a crash should immediately seek medical attention to mitigate the risk of deadly consequences.
Oftentimes, the location and intensity of pain may uncover problems, such as soft tissue injuries, internal bleeding, or organ damage, which many people would not be aware of. Following a motor vehicle crash, internal bleeding and organ damage are not only common but are life-threatening injuries that are often associated with abdominal pain.
After a motor vehicle accident, internal bleeding is one of the more common injuries that a victim sustains while excessive internal blood loss can lead to death within minutes. Signs of slower internal bleeding include:
- Bloody urine
- Trouble breathing
- Low blood pressure
- Rapid heartbeat
- Chest pains
- Pale skin
- Chalky lips
- Feeling cold
A person involved in a crash may also have organ damage without being aware. This can lead to organ failure if not treated immediately. Ultimately, this may lead to death or serious long-term organ damage.
If you or a loved one has been involved in a serious car crash, it is important to always seek immediate medical attention, regardless if you are experiencing pain, because a delay in the diagnosis of internal bleeding or organ damage can be fatal. Most people recover from internal bleeding or organ damage so long as the injuries are diagnosed in a timely manner.
