Car accidents caused by drunk driving can be responsible for a wide gamut of injuries, but the most dangerous are the ones that we don’t know our bodies are suffering from, such as a concussion or internal bleeding

An undetected injury is just one of the reasons you should always seek medical treatment after collisions, whether they are drunk driving accidents or honest mistakes. If your injuries are serious, an Atlanta car accident attorney may be able to help you mount a case against the drunk driver who was responsible for the accident that caused your injury.

Doctors may use a number of methods to check for internal bleeding, such as: 
  • an endoscopy to discover the source of internal bleeding in the stomach or colon;
  • CT scan to check for bleeding in the brain;
  • ultrasound to look for blood in the abdomen; and
  • angiography to determine arterial blood flow. 
In some cases, a critically ill patient may have to undergo emergency surgery to control internal bleeding – this is much more common in trauma patients who might otherwise bleed out waiting for the results of tests. 

If you have been injured in a car accident that was caused by an intoxicated driver and suffered injury, seek immediate medical attention and then contact an Atlanta car accident attorney who can help.

After serious car accidents caused by drunk drivers, you and your family may be dealing with the grief of internal bleeding or other serious injury, loss of a loved one, and financial burdens.
