Car Accident

What are some common types of car accident injuries?

A car accident can place your body under enormous strain. This is true in cases where accidents cause obvious physical damage, as well as in cases where tissue damage is not so readily apparent. 

Some of the injuries and conditions that develop due to car accidents include:

  • Broken bones
  • Muscle tears
  • Tendon and ligament damage
  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Concussion or other head injuries
  • Sprains and strains
  • Abrasions
  • Contusions
  • Lacerations
  • Whiplash

These are just a few of the injuries you might sustain during an car accident.

When should I seek medical assistance with car accident injuries?

If any of the following apply, you should seek immediate emergency medical attention:

  • Loss of consciousness
  • Uncontrolled bleeding 
  • Visibly broken bones
  • Chest pain
  • Shortness of breath

Often, injuries are far less obvious. For one, the adrenaline rush your body produces in reaction to an car accident can mask pain and other symptoms. It is not uncommon for hours or even days to pass before you begin to see the changes brought on by an car accident. 

It’s important to seek care as soon as you begin to experience pain or changes in how your body normally functions. Early treatment is often the most effective. You also want to avoid developing joint problems or chronic pain, which can interfere with your normal routines and prevent you from getting the exercise your body needs. 

How do I document my treatment after an car accident injury?

If you plan to rely on insurance coverage or legal action to cover some or all of the cost of your care, documenting your condition and treatment is absolutely essential. The team at Internal Medicine Partners has extensive experience in car injury care. 

You will receive outstanding care using state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment technology and have all of the documentation you need to move forward in the legal process. 

If you have questions or want to schedule an appointment for yourself or a loved one in the aftermath of an car accident, contact Internal Medicine Partners by phone during normal business hours. You can also set up a visit using the online booking tool, which is available around the clock.
