Every year, millions of drivers are injured in auto accidents, some suffering serious consequences that will impact their lives for years to come. While the nature of these injuries vary as widely as the devastating accidents that cause them, some injuries are more commonly related to car crashes than others.
Some of the most common injuries they see are:
- Head Injuries: Even drivers and passengers who are safely buckled in can strike their head against the dashboard, other occupants, or flying debris, resulting in some of the most severe accident-related injuries. The outcome can vary widely, from full recovery to permanent cognitive impairment, making valuating a personal injury claim extremely difficult.
- Back Injuries: The sudden, unexpected motion of the impact can result in damage to the spine and nerves, giving patients reduced sensation or lack of control over parts of their bodies. In severe cases, back injuries can result in complete paralysis.
- Neck Injuries: Damage to the soft tissues of the neck are among the most common injuries, and also one of the most difficult to diagnose. Some symptoms won't emerge for hours or even days, which is why it's so important to seek medical attention after a car accident, even if you don't immediately detect any problems.
