The following are only some examples of common car accident injuries. No matter what type of injury you sustained, our legal team is ready to help.
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
Traumatic brain injuries happen when someone hits their head or suffers a violent jolt that results in damage to the brain tissue. TBIs can be mild, moderate, or severe, though even a so-called mild concussion needs medical attention and treatment. Patients with more serious TBIs generally need to be hospitalized and might need rehabilitative therapy for cognitive, behavioral, or physical effects. Some severe TBI victims have permanent impairments.
Other Head Injuries
TBIs are not the only type of head injury that can result from a car crash. Some people can sustain skull fractures, which can, in turn, cause a brain injury if the fractured bone fragment shifts inward. Other parts of the head can be injured, including dental damage and fractures to the jaw, cheekbones, or nose.
Back And Neck Injuries
Your back and neck provide the support for most of your body, and any injuries can be very painful and can cause movement restrictions that hinder your work and daily activities. The impact of a crash can cause your body to jolt and twist in unnatural ways, and it can stretch the soft tissue in your neck and back, resulting in various injuries. Whiplash is a common example of a neck injury that results from the jolt of a collision.
Spinal Cord Injury And Paralysis
A car accident can also cause damage to your spinal cord, which is responsible for sending messages from your brain to your body to facilitate movement and sensory abilities. If you sustain a complete spinal cord injury, it can result in permanent paralysis below the point of the injury. You may suffer a herniated disc injury in your spine. This serious injury can result in serious operations such as a spinal fusion or a disc replacement.
Fractures are common in car crashes, and they can happen to many parts of the body. Limbs, appendages, ribs, hips, pelvis and many other parts of the body can sustain fractures. All fractures need medical attention, and some need surgery and take a long time to heal.
While burns are most often associated with fire, they can also result from car accidents. People can suffer burns if a car bursts into flames, or if they come into contact with a hot vehicle or hot pavement. Burns need extensive medical treatment, and this treatment can be costly and lengthy.
