Typical injuries that anyone can get in a crash

Minnesota residents who have been involved in a crash will usually have symptoms that appear immediately, as well as ones that take longer to manifest. While the injuries with immediate symptoms may be more acute and require more immediate medical attention, injuries that are slower to show can be equally dangerous.

FindLaw takes a look at the most common injuries that can occur during a crash. This includes injury to the neck, head, chest, and back. The legs are usually left with fewer injuries, though arms may become hurt too. Damages to muscles, bones, ligaments and nerves can occur. Concussion, whiplash, broken bones and sprains are all relatively common. It's also possible for more severe damage like limb loss, burns, or deep tissue scarring and trauma.

KTAR News looks at some delayed injury symptoms that can show long after a crash and thus be harder to spot. This includes numbness, pain in the back or shoulders, abdominal pain or swelling, and changes to a person's physical functions or personality. These can be signs of anything from internal organ damage to broken bones that weren't noticed earlier. Even delayed headaches can be a potential sign of a blood clot in the brain or a serious concussion. Neck or spinal damage can be left undetected for some time, too.

Due to the nature of car crash injuries, it's important for anything that's symptomatic to be looked at regardless of when the symptoms start showing. This can allow for a quicker healing time and a better window to take legal action.
