Chest injuries after a car accident are common and can be severe or serious. No doubt, seat belt use saves lives! They also cause chest injuries. In an accident, the seat belt tightens in order to forcefully hold on in place in a crash, causing several different types of injuries, from abrasions, bruising, fractures to the rib and sternum, to injuries to the organs and intestinal injuries. THUS, IT IS IMPORTANT TO SEEK IMMEDIATE medical help when a chest injury (EVEN IF YOU THINK ITS MINOR) from a seat belt is suspected. While these TYPES OF INJURIES appear to heal fairly quickly, they can CAUSE severe and serious hidden medical injuries like internal bleeding and torn cartilages, muscles, tendons, or ligaments. So, DON’T DELAY – get medical attention right away! And if you’ve been in a crash, DON’T DELAY – call today 228.467.0177!
