Doctor :   Thank you for your question. We strongly recommend that you get immediately examined by a doctor at your nearest emergen cy department. These bruising and cuts you have sustained may be the least serious of injuries that you have. In fact, you may sustained fractured ribs, or even a neck injury known as whiplash. These need to be thoroughly investigated for by a doctor so treatment could be started immediately. Please seek medical attention. Thank you for consulting
