The violent impact of another vehicle can cause serious or fatal injuries to bodily organs, bones and the vascular system. Injuries that are obvious, such as broken bones, will be diagnosed in the emergency room and treated. Some injuries, such as internal bleeding or a concussion, may not be diagnosed until some time has elapsed.
If you have been in a car accident that sends you to the hospital, it is imperative that you receive quality medical care. You should also speak with a personal injury attorney concerning your right to claim compensation.
