What are internal injuries?

Internal injuries are injuries to bones, organs, and systems in the body. These injuries are often not readily apparent.

What to do if you suspect internal injuries?

If you believe you have internal injuries from a motorcycle accident, seek prompt medical attention.

Internal injuries can be serious and life-threatening. Obtain emergency medical care right away to examine you and treat your injuries.

Types of Internal Injuries from Motorcycle Accidents

Internal bleeding

Internal bleeding is the loss of blood from damaged blood vessels, where the blood remains within the body. It is a serious medical condition that may be fatal if not treated. While internal bleeding may resolve without intervention, surgery may be required in some cases.

Serious types of internal bleeding include:

  • Hemothorax – lungs
  • Hemopericardium, cardiac tamponade – heart
  • Intracranial hemorrhage – skull and brain
  • Aorta, superior and inferior vena cava – blood vessels and their branches
  • Lacerations of the liver, spleen, kidneys, stomach, intestines

Traumatic brain injury

Traumatic brain injury is the disruption of normal brain function due to trauma. Brain injury may interfere with cognitive processing, brain signals to the body, emotional regulation, mental health, and consciousness.

Broken bones and fractures

Bones may break without any visible disfigurement or obvious deformity. Rib and clavicle fractures are common examples of this, but the femur, humerus, radius, ulna, tibia, and fibula can break without outwardly visible signs.

Pneumothorax (collapsed lung)

A collapsed lung occurs when air escapes from the lung. The air in the pleural space then puts pressure on the lung, preventing it from functioning normally. Without treatment, respiratory failure or heart failure may occur.

How serious is internal bleeding after a motorcycle accident?

Internal bleeding from a motorcycle accident can cause death in as little as 10 minutes to three hours or more after the accident. Organ failure, coma, and death may occur if internal bleeding is not treated promptly after a car accident, making emergency medical attention vital.

Can a motorcycle accident cause a pneumothorax?

Blunt trauma or a penetrating injury from a motorcycle accident can cause a pneumothorax. Force on the lung can tear tissues and leave room for air to escape and the lung to collapse.

Internal Injury Symptoms

Symptoms of internal injury may include:

  • Pain
  • Trouble breathing
  • Feeling cold
  • Pale or clammy skin
  • Confusion, unconsciousness, fainting, dizziness
  • Mood changes, lack of alertness
  • Thirst, nausea, vomiting
  • Diarrhea, blood in stool
  • Numbness, weakness
  • Vision changes
  • Headache
  • Loss of memory
  • Swelling
  • Bruising

Blunt Force vs. Deceleration Trauma

There are two primary causes of internal injury in a motorcycle accident – blunt force and deceleration trauma. Blunt force is when something strikes the body.

For example, when a car hits a motorcyclist, the body is subjected to blunt force from the car or ground.

Blunt trauma places force on the body beyond what it can naturally withstand, causing tears in body tissues.

Deceleration trauma is an injury that occurs when a person in motion comes to an abrupt stop. When you’re riding a motorcycle and hit another object, the body’s momentum must end. This is called deceleration, and this change in speed and resulting force may cause injury.

How serious are internal injuries?

While some may be minor and heal on their own, internal injuries can be fatal. If there is any possibility of internal injury, seek emergency medical attention.
