Deep lacerations can have a lasting impact

Usually, when you hear about someone getting cut, you don't think much of it. However, crash-related lacerations can be significant. Deep wounds and puncture wounds have a higher potential of becoming infected. They also pose the threat of impacting organs, muscles, bones and other tissues in the body.

After a crash, those who have significant wounds will likely be transported to the hospital for the bleeding. After that, they must be assessed to determine the risk of infection. Some people will be able to take antibiotics for a period of time to reduce the risk of an infection. Others will require surgery to clean out the wound and then be placed on antibiotics to prevent the surgical site from becoming infected.

Are lacerations catastrophic injuries?

Normally, lacerations aren't considered to be catastrophic. These wounds tend to heal, though they may take a long time to do so. However, if a laceration impacts the spine, skull or a major organ, you may have a catastrophic injury that requires emergency care. It could go on to affect you for many months or years out of your life, lead to a disability or cause chronic pain.

No matter what kind of injuries you've suffered, it's always important to get the medical care you need. Even after you're stabilized, you should be cautious about your injuries and return to the hospital or your medical provider if you have questions or don't seem to be healing well.

The person who caused the injuries should be held liable for your medical care, financial losses and any support you need while you focus on your recovery.
