Car Accident Lawyer
So many people are on the roads at a time, which means that the likelihood of a motor vehicle accident occurring is very high. There are several things that cause motor vehicle accidents — from distracted driving to poorly kept roadways. There is also a wide range of injuries that can be sustained when involved in a motor vehicle accident. It is important to be made aware of the physical risks you take when in a motor vehicle and injuries that can happen to you or the ones you love, should either of you be involved in an accident. The most common injuries sustained following a motor vehicle accident are as follows:
Injuries to your back. Rear-end accidents are very common. Suppose you are struck in the rear of your vehicle unexpectedly. This jolting that your body goes through can cause intense strains and fractures, and can last for a long time.
Neck injuries – A common car accident injury, these can range from mild, like whiplash or neck strain, to serious, such as vertebral disc injury.
Brain and head injuries – A common injury for drivers and passengers is a closed head injury, such as a mild concussion or traumatic brain injury (TBI). Even if there are no physical signs of trauma, the brain is at risk of being jostled because of an accident’s impact, and brain injuries can occur as a result.
Face injuries – Injuries to the face can be caused by almost anything in a crash, such as shattered glass or an airbag. Injuries can also range from mild to the severe and can include scrapes, bruises, and lacerations.
Psychological injuries – Non-physical injuries are likely to occur, especially after collisions that result in severe injuries or death. Victims may experience long-term psychological injuries such as emotional distress or symptoms that resemble post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Car accident injuries, whether physical or not, can affect the life of a person long after a crash occurs. When an accident has been caused by another party’s negligence, an accident victim has the right to pursue compensation from the at-fault party to help with injury recovery.
