Common Car Accident Injuries

common car accident injuriesWhen you learn to drive a car, a good part of the education you receive is designed to prevent you from getting into an accident. Unfortunately, no matter how attentive you were in driver’s education or how careful a driver you are, when you encounter another driver who is careless or reckless, you’re going to get into an accident. Car accidents can be very serious, and can lead to significant physical and emotional injuries. The expenses that arise from suffering some of the most common car accident injuries can be very high, and can devastate a family financially. If you have suffered this type of injury and it is the fault of the other driver, then an experienced personal injury attorney from Philly Justice can help. We will file a personal injury lawsuit against the responsible party to help you get the compensation you deserve.

When you’ve been in a car accident, the injuries that result can impact almost every part of your body. The difference in injury is often a matter of what type of crash you’ve been in, what type of vehicle you were in, or how fast you or the other driver were going. Here are some of the most frequently seen injuries:

Internal Injuries

The impact of an automobile accident wreaks havoc on the body’s internal organs. In some cases, these injuries occur because the body gets jostled and the organs slam against each other and the bones, and in other cases they get crushed from the impact of a vehicle or another part of the car.  When an internal organ gets punctured or bruised it can be extremely painful and can even be life threatening.

Broken Bones, Lacerations and Burns

Even minor accidents can result in limbs being broken, ribs fractured, burns and painful lacerations to tissue and skin that can cause scarring and disfigurement.

Spinal Cord Injuries and Back Injuries

The back and spinal cord are highly vulnerable to the impact of automobile accidents. When ligaments tear and bones break it can cause collateral damage to the spinal cord, which runs from the brain down the back, and controls feelings and movement throughout the body. Those same tears and strains placed on ligaments to the back can create pain that lasts a lifetime.

Brain and Head Injuries

All too often, a collision can cause the head to strike a windshield or some other part of the inside of the vehicle and cause a traumatic brain injury. Some of these injuries can be minor and have temporary effects and others can leave the victim disabled for the rest of their life.

Psychological Damage

Being in an accident can be extremely traumatic and can leave you with anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
