Cuts & Lacerations

Why You Need a Houston Car Accident Attorney

A vehicle crash can result in sharp and jagged edges of metal and broken glass that pose a high risk of injury to the driver. Cuts and lacerations can occur at the time of the impact, or they can result from the driver having to exit the wreckage after the crash.

The most minor type of cut is a superficial laceration or abrasion. It only involves the top layer of skin called the epidermis. The usual treatment for such a wound is to wash it and keep it clean and dry until it heals.

If, however, the laceration reaches below the top layer of skin and into the dermis, it can become more serious. The dermis contains blood vessels and nerves, meaning that cuts this deep can be significantly more painful than a superficial injury and require more medical attention.

The most serious cuts are those that reach deeper than the dermis, causing injury to muscles, tendons, bones, and organs. These wounds need immediate medical care to prevent excessive bleeding and trauma. Also, any laceration can become infected if it is contaminated, which means more medical attention will be necessary. In addition, you will need to the support and legal guidance of a professional Houston car accident lawyer.
