Lacerations and Contusions from Car Accidents
Almost every person involved in a motor vehicle crash will suffer lacerations or contusions. These are more commonly known as cuts and bruises, but should not be confused with minor bumps and scratches. Motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians often suffer the most serious lacerations and contusions as their bodies are directly exposed to the force of impact.
A contusion is a blunt injury that damages the skin and soft and tissue but does not break the skin. Contusions to the head may result in traumatic brain injury or bleeding. The blunt force that causes a contusion can also cause broken bones, internal bleeding, or nerve and organ damage. The lungs, heart, kidney, and spleen can be seriously harmed.
Lacerations, or cuts, can go deep, damaging muscle, tissue, and even bone. Even shallow lacerations run the risk of scarring, nerve damage, and pain, and may be accompanied by abrasions or puncture wounds. Open wounds are vulnerable to foreign fragments, infection, and tetanus. Victims can be left permanently disfigured, particularly if lacerations affect the head, face, and neck.
Symptoms and Side Effects of a Laceration or Contusion:
- Draining pus
- Swelling and inflammation
- Nerve damage
- Brain damage
- Organ damage
- Tendon damage
- Short and long-term pain
- Pierced arteries
