Car accidents caused by drunk driving are often the culprit for serious injury and even the death of the victims of those collisions. One of the more serious but often undetected injuries that can result from drunk driving accidents is internal bleeding. This type of injury, like concussions, is difficult to spot because there are very few external symptoms, and the victim may not even be aware that he or she has been seriously injured until severe pain sets in.

Internal bleeding can be any injury inside the body that is bleeding into a cavity, on the brain or where it otherwise shouldn’t be. When emergency medical responders assess a patient they suspect has internal bleeding, they look for the ABCs first: 
  • airway is open;
  • the victim is breathing; and
  • sufficient circulation
Because of the complexity of an injury like internal bleeding, they can be difficult to diagnose and equally difficult to treat from the field, so it is vital that if you or someone you love has been injured in a serious accident you immediately seek medical attention at a hospital, emergency room or doctor’s office. 

If you have been injured, reach out to an Atlanta car accident attorney who has handled drunk driving accident cases before and will relentlessly pursue financial recovery on your behalf.
