Dallas County injury lawyer alerts injury is leading cause of death ages 1 to 44.
Dallas, TX (AmericanInjuryNews.com)–The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) www.cdc.gov recently released findings stating injury is the leading cause of death in people 1 to 44 years old. There are more than 6 million accidents in the United States every year. There are more than 3 million men women and children injured each year. On average, one out of every three motor vehicle accidents results in some type of injury. These injuries may be minor affecting soft tissue or traumatic leading to death.
When an accident occurs, some injuries are obvious like broken bones and lacerations. Unfortunately, injuries affecting soft tissue initially go unnoticed by thousands of drivers and passengers in Texas and across the country every year. These soft tissue injuries are a result of stress and strain on joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscles, which absorbed the impact of the accident. These are harder to diagnose and treat especially in car accidents where drivers and passengers appear to be ok at the scene of the crash. Soft tissue injuries are very common in drivers and passengers of motor vehicle collisions and minor “fender benders.” Sometimes the symptoms may take days, weeks and even months to appear. Modern technology like X-rays, MRI’s and CT scans will not reveal these injuries. This does not make the damage or the pain any less real.
Injuries such as whiplash effect the neck and lower spine area. Shoulders and knees are often pulled, strained and smashed in car crashes and truck wrecks and may not reveal any bruising or broken skin. The spinal column and brain undergo a massive jarring effect in the event of car crashes, truck wrecks and SUV rollovers. It’s important to seek medical treatment by doctors and nurses immediately after an accident. If you begin to experience pain, weakness, soreness, and loss of mobility no matter how insignificant it seems seek medical attention immediately. Most motorists who suffer soft tissue injuries will regain a full recovery if the proper medical diagnosis and treatment is received.
