Vehicle accidents are dangerous for everyone involved. Even relatively small collisions can cause lifelong damage, depending on the circumstances of the crash. We will discuss a wide range of injuries that typically come from auto accidents in this blog.
Whiplash is a very common injury related to car accidents, and occurs as a result of the sudden stop of a vehicle. The problems that can result from whiplash include soreness, sprains, spinal injuries, and chronic pain.
Any number of factors can cause breakage in an accident. For example, collision with the steering wheel or seat belt can cause injury in the chest area. Broken legs require long periods of recovery, and damage to the head or neck can prove fatal. In addition, certain types of breaks can lead to infection.
Lacerations are often caused by glass from shattered windows, but can also come as a result of collision with loose objects or the inside of a car. A severe cut can leave permanent scars and may require correction through plastic surgery. In the worst case, a laceration may prove fatal if it reaches to arteries or other important tissues.
