You've probably driven the same route numerous times. You know the road like the back of your hand and remember making it home safely countless times. When the other vehicle slammed into yours, it came as a surprise.
You suffered serious injuries. Perhaps you suffered a serious bone fracture, crush injuries or a severely bruised muscle in an arm or leg. At some point, you begin experiencing severe pain in the muscles around the injury. Upon examination, your doctor tells you that you suffer from acute compartment syndrome and may need surgery to avoid further or permanent damage to the area.
