The Most Common Car Accident Injuries
Head and spinal cord injuries are some of the most devastating results of an automobile accident. If extreme force has traumatized your brain, this can lead to a traumatic brain injury (TBI). The signs of a TBI can be immediately apparent, or they may not surface for weeks, even months. Therefore, it is important to see a doctor, even if you believe you are fine.
Whiplash is also a common result of car accidents, and most often occurs in rear-end crashes. If your delicate spinal cord tissue becomes bruised or damaged, this can result in a spinal cord injury that can leave you paralyzed. If you sustain spinal cord damage, the area above the point of injury is usually OK, but the body functions below the injury site are often impaired.
Fractures, sprains and lacerations are common in your extremities. Internal injuries may also result from impact or a vital organ may become damaged if a sharp object like a broken rib punctures it.
