Accident Injury Q & A

What is an accident injury?

An accident injury occurs because of trauma to your body during an accident. Common accident injuries include:

  • Whiplash
  • Fractures
  • Strains
  • Sprains
  • Lacerations
  • Other types of wounds
  • Other soft tissue injuries
  • Head injuries
  • Burns
  • Neck or back injuries 

You might get injured at work, while lifting something heavy, in a motor vehicle accident, by falling down, or in another type of accident. Some accident injuries are serious or life-threatening, so head to Houston Medical ER as soon as you can after an accident.

Even if you don’t have symptoms right away after a car- or work-related accident, it’s important to get evaluated for insurance or workers’ compensation reasons.  

What are the symptoms of an accident injury?

If you have an accident injury, you may experience some of the following symptoms:

You might have more than one type of accident injury at once. Sometimes, injuries heal on their own with proper at-home care. In other instances, however, you need medical intervention to avoid complications.

What should I expect during my ER visit?

When you arrive at Houston Medical ER for your visit, the first priority is pain relief. Your provider offers medicine to help you feel more comfortable. They check your blood pressure, pulse, temperature, and other vital signs. Your ER specialist reviews your accident history and completes a physical exam to assess the severity of your condition. 

 

You might need X-rays, CT scans, MRIs, other imaging procedures, blood tests, urine tests, or other tests to diagnose the type of accident injury you have and treat it properly.
