Accident Injuries Resulting From a Car Collision and What it Means
Car accidents happen each and every day across the country resulting in minor to very serious injuries and fatalities. From lacerations to retinal detachment and emotional trauma, the chances of being affected negatively in some way by a car accident injuries are very substantial. Along with unconsciousness, bleeding and a wide range of physical deformities, there are some serious injuries that may not have symptoms that are immediately apparent. That said here are some subtle signs or symptoms that may indicate that you have been injured in some way following a crash.
When Pupils Appear Irregular in Diameter
For example, anytime limbs are weak or partially paralyzed, this is an indication that something serious has occurred. In addition, impaired vision, the inability to smell or hear as well as unusual sensations in various parts of the body all can indicate some problem that needs to be addressed. Constant nosebleeds or any type of clear liquid that may be leaking from the nose could indicate more serious problems. When pupils appear irregular in diameter or unnatural in some way, this may also indicate some type of serious brain injury. In addition, tenderness of muscles or the bones or ligaments that do not feel right may signify that injury has occurred as a result of an accident.
Problems With Memory or Concentration
When an individual tries to open their mouth and they experience pain, this is a subtle sign that more serious injury is present. Equally of concern is when a patient has problems with memory or concentration or is unable to sleep. While many of these symptoms may be brushed off as unimportant, they are indeed very important and can result in more serious consequences at a later time.
