Types of Car Accident Injuries
Our Auto Accident Injury Attorneys in South Florida represent clients injured in all types of serious injuries.
Car accident forces exerted onto the human body often result in head, neck, and back injuries. The severity of the crash forces could yield fractured bones and life-threatening injuries. The most severe types of injuries occur when occupants in a motor vehicle are thrown from the vehicle. When accident victims are thrown from a vehicle, they often suffer fatal head injuries. This is why states have passed mandatory seatbelt usage laws. The laws have saved 1,000s of lives, but many people continue to ride unrestrained in motor vehicles resulting in tragedy.
Personal injuries can manifest in several different ways following a car crash. The following are some common car accident injuries that transpire during traffic collisions:
- Abdominal injuries
- Bone fractures
- Brain injuries
- Burn injuries
- Disc herniation
- Head injuries
- Internal bleeding
- Ligament tears
- Lumbar sprains
- Muscle tears
- Neck injuries
- Spinal fracture
- Spinal cord damage
- Spinal stenosis
- other types of Trauma
Each of these car accident injuries requires different types of medical treatment. After an accident, it is very important that those involved in the crash receive medical attention. Many injuries, such as brain injuries and internal bleeding, are painless and fatal if left untreated.
Back Injuries Are the Most Common Type of Accident Injury
Back injuries are the most common types of car accident-related injuries. The sudden jolting of the body during impact causes the accident victim to experience a forceful back-and-forth movement of the head, called whiplash. Whiplash causes extreme stress on the vertebrae of the back and neck. Mild cases of neck and back injuries can be treated with rest, hot or cold packs, specialized exercises, and anti-inflammatory medication. More severe cases of neck and back injuries may require steroid injections, nerve block injections, or surgery.
