There are two main types of internal injuries – blunt and penetrating. Both of these injuries are severe and require immediate medical attention to help prevent any complications. Here is what you need to know about them:
- Blunt trauma: Internal injuries caused by blunt trauma do not always show visible trauma. They occur when a person’s body collides with an object, usually at a high speed, causing damage to blood vessels in the body.
- Penetrating trauma: While internal injuries caused by blunt trauma do not always show visible signs, penetrating trauma does. It occurs when a foreign object punctures and enters the body. For example, if you were to fall on a sharp object, this would be penetrating trauma.
There are many potential causes of internal injuries, but some are a bit more common than others. Common causes include:
- Car collisions
- Slip and fall accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Truck accidents
- Physical assault
- Medical malpractice
If the negligent actions of another party caused your internal injuries, you could pursue a personal injury claim to recover compensation.
Depending on the area of the body that was affected, the symptoms of an internal injury could vary. The areas of the body that are most commonly affected include the head, chest, and abdomen. Here are some of the symptoms you should be aware of:
- Internal damage to the head: If your head sustained internal damage, some of the symptoms you may experience include numbness on one side of the body, difficulty swallowing, loss of balance, changes in hearing or vision, trouble speaking or understanding speech, and lethargy.
- Internal damage to the chest or abdomen: These injuries could result in abdominal pain, chest pain, dizziness, nausea, shortness of breath, blood in urine, vomiting, and bruising.
- Internal damage to the muscles or joints: If you suffered from internal bleeding in your muscles or joints you may experience a reduced range of motion, pain in the joint, or swelling in the joint.
If you were involved in an accident, it is essential to seek medical attention as soon as possible to detect the presence of any of these injuries. Doing so could protect your health and start a paper trail that could strengthen your claim.
