Internal injuries are a common complaint of auto accident victims, which often go undetected for a number of days following a collision.

There can be a number of reasons why these types of injuries occur, however it is often due to the violent shaking that vehicle occupants endure at the point of impact in a crash.

Common Internal Injuries from a Car Accident

After a traffic collision, it's common for injured drivers and passengers to conduct self-evaluations of their bodies, while trying to look for any injuries that they may have sustained. In many cases, a doctor may examine the accident victim to see what physical damage has occurred.

Internal injuries present a number of dangers to the injured. This is because they can quickly develop into more serious conditions. Even slow-speed traffic crashes can result in serious trauma to the interior of the body. Regardless of how “serious” you deem a car accident, a thorough medical examination is essential. This will ensure that no internal injuries are present.

Some of the most common internal injuries from a car accident include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Abdominal aorta aneurysm

      A rupture to the abdominal aorta is caused by a compressed stomach, commonly seen in traffic crashes; this is generally a fatal injury.

  • Broken ribs

      Fractured ribs have a dangerous potential to puncture or damage internal organs, such as lungs, or major blood vessels.

  • Internal bleeding

      When damage is inflicted on blood vessels in the body and they cannot repair themselves or clot. Some common symptoms include: fatigue, thirst, lightheadedness, abdominal pain, pale complexion, feeling cold.

  • Organ injury

      High-impact collisions can cause damage to the organs which can cause internal bleeding and/or the organ to shut itself down completely.

  • Pneumothorax

      This happens when a broken rib causes a puncture in the lung. The lung then collapses and air is let into the chest cavity.

  • Ruptured spleen

Commonly associated with severe internal bleeding, a ruptured spleen often requires surgery to repair.

In addition to the above internal injuries from a car accident, crash victims may also experience internal bruising to various organs. If you or a loved one has suffered internal injuries from a collision, an internal injuries attorney will guide you through the legal process.
