Common Injuries Sustained In Motor Vehicle Accidents
Very few motor vehicle accidents result in no injuries. Depending on what you’re driving the level of injury will be more or less severe. If you’re on a motorcycle, bicycle, or just walking and are hit, the injuries are generally much more serious.
Neck injuries are very common and happen most often in rear end collisions. When your vehicle is hit from behind it can cause whiplash. In severe neck injury cases, the discs can be damaged in the neck or there can be cervical dislocation.
Whiplash, much like the name suggests, is when the head and neck are jerked back and forth quickly. Even in low speed collisions whiplash can damage ligaments and muscles in your neck which causes intense pain.
These types of injuries can be difficult to prove as the damage is done to soft tissue. In some cases, whiplash can cause vision problems and limit mobility for your head and neck. This is why most victims choose to get a personal injury lawyer.
Car accidents that cause bones to fracture and break commonly include rollovers and multiple vehicle collisions. While breaking bones can happen in any type of collision they can lead to a plethora of other internal injuries such as punctured lungs, broken pelvis, broken hips, fractured skull, broken wrists, and more.
It takes a long time for broken bones to heal. In some cases, victims may need rehabilitation that may take weeks, months, or years to heal. In the worst cases, some broken bones may need surgeries to install screws and metal plates to hold them together.
Often times victims of car accidents end up with scars. They are caused by broken glass, plastic, metal, chemicals, and burns. In many cases, victims experience deep scars on the face, arms, legs, and torso.
For a lot of people who get scars from car accidents, it can be very costly to treat them. These procedures are done by plastic surgeons and may take multiple surgeries to full repair.
Your back is the foundation for just about everything you do in life. Whether it’s just trying to get a restful night’s sleep or taking out the garbage. Back injuries are one of the most common types of injuries and often result in fractured vertebrae, sprained backs, and herniated discs.
While amputation is rare in auto accidents, it does happen. Clearly, the loss of a leg or arm impacts the victim in an extraordinary way. These people have to live with lifelong disabilities. The costs associated with prosthetics are high along with the physical and occupational rehabilitation one may need.
Traumatic Brain Injuries
While most of us are familiar with the term concussion, traumatic brain injuries are lesser known. In a motor vehicle accident, it’s common for occupants to hit their heads. If your head is hit hard enough it can cause serious, sometimes permanent, damage to the brain.
While a broken arm is really obvious, brain injuries can be difficult to spot.
Brain Injury symptoms include: feeling tired all the time, anxious, nauseated, headaches, insomnia, mood swings with outbursts, and difficulty concentrating or remembering new things.

Spinal Cord Injuries
If the spinal cord is hit by a sudden blow it can damage the vertebrae, discs, soft tissues, and ligabments. This type of trauma can cause permanent damage to the spinal cord. In the most tragic situations damages to the spine result in partial or total paralysis.
