You were driving home along I-95 when the worst happened: a driver didn’t see you in his blind spot and ran into you while switching lanes. The abrupt blow caused your vehicle to tip over on its side, which resulted in a major collision. You haven’t felt right since the accident; you’re in pain and having difficulty walking. Could you have a pelvic fracture? Here, a Daytona car crash lawyer discusses the symptoms.
Common Pelvic Fracture Symptoms
- Abdominal bruising
- Back, hip, leg, or coccyx pain
- Pelvic bruising or swelling
- Difficulty walking
- Intense pelvic pain
Symptoms of More Intense Pelvic Fractures
- Numb and weak legs
- Bloody urine
- Pain in the lower abdomen, on either the left or right
Pelvic fractures are extremely serious and require medical treatment immediately. Although you should always receive a doctor’s examination after involvement in a Daytona car crash, getting a thorough evaluation is especially important if you suspect your pelvis has been injured.
Victims of such injuries often have rough roads in front of them. Along with all of the doctor’s appointments and treatments they will receive, they may also lose time away from work. Coupled with costly medical bills, such an injury could result in major debt.
