Signs to address if you suspect a pelvic injury

On Behalf of | May 26, 2022 | Motor Vehicle Accidents |

If you’re involved in a car accident in Maryland, a pelvic injury is common and should be addressed. There are a few symptoms that arise with this injury right away as well as some that don’t present themselves until a few days after the accident, which is why it’s important to pay close attention to how you feel and any changes that you see.

Pain

One of the most common symptoms of a pelvic injury after a motor vehicle accident is pain. This could range from minor tenderness in the pelvic region to severe pain that is unbearable. You could experience more pain once you begin moving around or when you’re in certain positions. Pain could be felt in other areas of the abdomen as well.

Walking

A sign of a pelvic injury after a car crash is the inability to walk or difficulty walking. You might not be able to stand for long periods of time or could need to rely on someone else to help you with moving around.

Bleeding and discomfort urinating

If you experience any kind of abnormal bleeding when you use the bathroom, then you should seek medical attention. This could be due to an organ that’s been damaged. You could see bleeding from areas like the rectum or the vagina. Any bleeding that’s associated with pain or that becomes worse could be an indication that there is a severe issue that needs emergency treatment. Any kind of discomfort while urinating is a sign of a pelvic injury as well.
