4 Injuries Common in Auto Accidents, Rochester, New York

Auto accidents are often physically traumatic and violent, leaving victims with devastating injuries that may never fully heal. In these instances, a personal injury attorney can collect compensation for your medical expenses and missed work, so you don’t have to shoulder the financial burden of someone else’s carelessness. Below the legal team at Vincent J. Criscuolo & Associates in Rochester, NY, shares the most common types of injuries they see after these devastating accidents.

4 Conditions That Occur After an Auto Accident

1. Broken Bones

According to these personal injury attorneys, even relatively minor accidents may result in broken bones, sprains, and contusions, which may take months to heal. While a full recovery is possible, these injuries can be painful and may make working impossible.

2. Neck Injuries

Sudden stops cause the head to suddenly whip back and forth, causing soft-tissue injuries which may not present themselves for hours or days. Whiplash is the most common neck injury related to auto accidents. Many victims also experience damage to the cervical vertebrae, which impacts every part of the body.

3. Brain Injuries
