1. Neck Injuries
Whiplash is a common neck injury associated with car accidents. The injury can be mild or quite severe, depending on the accident. Some accidents may also result in disc injury or cervical radiculopathy.
2. Back Injuries
Back injuries may not show up immediately after an accident and, like neck injuries, vary significantly in severity. Injuries include sprains, strains, fractures, and disc injuries. Spinal injuries are also possible, and symptoms may include weak limbs, paralysis, numbness, tingling, and labored breathing.
3. Brain and Head Injuries
Brain injuries include concussions, seizures, headaches, and dizziness. More serious injuries can include skull fractures or brain bruises. Facial injuries can be more obvious, as your head can make contact with the steering wheel, dashboard, airbag, or windshield during an accident, leading to bruises and fractures.
4. Internal Injuries
Fractured ribs are a common injury after a car accident. It is not uncommon to see injuries in internal organs as well.
5. Psychological Injuries
If you or a loved one has ever been involved in a car accident, you know how devastating it can be. Emotional injuries can be short-term or last for a very long time.
