Fort Lauderdale Car Accident Lawyer
Common Car Accident Injuries
Car accidents can be extremely violent for the passengers and drivers, even when they do not cause significant damage to the vehicle. The high speed forces involved in an impact have the capacity of causing severe, life changing injuries that will require extensive emergency medical treatment, hospitalization and extensive rehabilitation for a complete recovery, and many will never fully heal.
Some of the most common car accident injuries include:
- Brain damage/injuries
- Neck injuries
- Head injuries
- Back injuries
- Face injuries
- Psychological and emotional trauma
Injuries to the soft tissues are common, such as in whiplash, a condition of damage to the tissues of the neck and the cervical spinal cord. Other areas of the spine may also be damaged by the sudden forces of a collision, with back injuries which may result in chronic pain and loss of range of motion, or even some form of paralysis associated with a spinal cord injury. Twisting and torqueing the body in different directions during a car accident can lead to sprains, strains, or fractures of the spine. Symptoms from these injuries can take some time to show which is why seeking medical attention after an accident is very important. Face injuries are also common because of the possibility of hitting the steering wheel, airbag, windshield, and shattered glass can significantly damage the face.
Car accident victims also frequently suffer fractures or broken bones, as well as concussions and even traumatic brain injuries resulting from impact against the frame of the vehicle or the windshield. The head and brain injuries are very dangerous because someone may appear to be fine but the brain may have experienced significant damages being shook around in the skull during the crash.
