Car accidents can cause several different injuries to virtually any part of your body. No two car accidents are identical, and the same goes for injuries. Although they may differ in severity depending on the case, there are some injuries that are more common than others.
Here’s a list of some of the most common car accident injuries and how they can help with your accident injury claim.
Brain and Head Injuries
In a car accident, one of the most common injuries suffered by both drivers and passengers is a closed head injury. This can range from a mild concussion, head trauma, to traumatic brain injury. Even when there are no signs of any physical trauma, the brain is still at risk of injuries as the head gets shaken upon impact.
Neck injuries due to a car crash can occur in milder forms such as whiplash or a neck strain, but also as more serious injuries like cervical radiculopathy or disc injury. These injuries may already be reason enough to file for a car accident injury claim.
The body moves forward and then snaps back during impact. The resulting torque can cause back injuries like sprains, strains, fractures, and disc injuries. Symptoms can take some time to show up, so it’s best to get a complete check-up following an accident.
More than a legal basis for filing injury claims, these injuries can pose great threat on your health and life.
