Here are 4 injuries you don't know you could be suffering after an auto accident.
One of the injuries that is most frequently missed by doctors and victims is a concussion, which is commonly caused by a bump, blow, jolt, rattling, or whipping of the head. It's very difficult to recognize the symptoms of a concussion, especially if you're the victim. Untreated, a concussion could lead to swelling or blood clotting in the brain--a life-threatening symptom.
2. Whiplash and neck sprains
Whiplash and neck sprains occur when your head is forcefully thrown backward and then forward or side to side. It can lead to chronic neck pain and other long-lasting complications that include loss of range of motion, blurred vision, tinnitus, memory problems, and more. You may not feel this injury until days after the accident--many report waking up with shocking pain and loss of range of motion in their necks.
3. Herniated disks and back sprains
Back injuries are one of the most common--and one of the most painful and long-lasting--injuries that occur in auto accidents. Most back injuries last a lifetime. A herniated disk is when one of your spinal disks--the rubber-like cushion that sits between each vertebrae in your spine--slips out of place or tears. Just like neck injuries, the symptoms may not present themselves until days later. In many cases, the victim awakens to sharp, unbearable back pain and often cannot even get out of bed.
4. Muscle/ligament/tendon tears and sprains
Soreness after an auto accident is definitely a sign that something is wrong. Auto accidents happen so fast, you might not remember that you got banged around hard. So, that soreness could actually be a muscle, ligament, or tendon tear or sprain. Many times, the soreness intensifies, and only after suffering excruciating pain, a victim will finally seek the medical treatment they need.
254,853 persons were injured in motor vehicle traffic crashes in 2017 according to the Texas Department of Transportation; but, those are just the reported injuries--many people suffer from injuries and don't realize it until it's too late. Don't let the insurance company brush off your injury as "just a sprain/strain" or "just back pain." If you've been in an auto accident, don't wait!
