Any time a person is injured in a vehicle accident, it is recommended that the person has a thorough medical exam to check for injuries. This medical exam is typically conducted in the emergency room (ER). This medical exam is important as it can identify injuries that are both apparent as well as those that are not readily obvious to the injured person. Among the types of injuries that may not be obvious right after the accident are internal injuries. These internal injuries can be very serious, and can have serious adverse health consequences if they are not promptly treated. Internal injuries are further discussed on the “Internal Injuries Resulting From Chicago-Area Vehicle Accidents.”
