Car Accident Injuries That may Require Surgery

Whether you a bus accident or motorcycle crash there are many types of injuries that may require surgical intervention, including:

  • Bone Fractures: If you suffer a simple broken bone in an accident, a physician may be able to set it and put on a cast without surgery. However, if the fracture was complex, surgery may be absolutely necessary. For example, if the bone fractured into many pieces, a surgeon may need to use a plate, screws, and/or pins to hold the bones in the proper place for them to heel.
  • Torn Muscles, Tendons, Ligaments: Soft tissue injuries are very common in accidents. Often, you will suffer a strain or sprain that does not require surgery. However, if a muscle, tendon, or ligament tore, it may not be able to heal on its own. You may need to undergo surgery so that this tissue can fully heal, and you can eventually regain full use of that area of your body.
  • Internal Injuries: If you suffer damage to one or more organs during an accident, such as perforation of your bowels or a punctured lung, you may need to undergo surgery immediately to repair the damage and avoid further injury.
  • Back Injuries: Depending on the accident, you may suffer many types of neck and back injuries, including fractured vertebrae, soft tissue injuries, and herniated discs. All of these can potentially require surgery. For herniated discs that are pushing onto and damaging nerves, you may require a discectomy, which is the surgical process of removing a part of or all of the building disc.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries: If your or a loved one’s back and spinal cord were injured in an accident, you or they will likely need surgery. This surgery may be to repair and set broken vertebrae, repair torn soft tissue, remove bulging dics, and more.
  • Knee Injuries: One of the most common reasons for surgery after a vehicle accident is a serious knee injury. This is a complicated joint, and many things can go wrong. You may need surgery to repair soft tissue around the joint, or you may need a more significant procedure like joint replacement.
  • Brain Injuries: Moderate-to-severe brain injuries may require brain surgery. These procedures care vey risky and very costly.
  • Burn Injuries: If you or a loved one suffered serious burns in an accident, you can expect to undergo many surgeries. You may need to go into surgery for physicians to clean your wounds and use skin grafts. You also can expect to undergo cosmetic surgeries in the future to reduce and improve the physical appearance of your scaring.
