5 Common Car Accident Injuries
Car accidents can cause serious injuries to any part of the body. We’ve put together a list of the most common car accident injures that people can suffer from, ranging from mild to severe.
- Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)
Car accidents are the leading cause of TBI, which is when the brain is damaged by a blow to head suddenly or a piercing injury to the head. Every year about 50,000 people die from a TBI and another 80,000 to 90,000 suffer long-term disabilities. Motorcycle riders are at higher risk of a TBI due to the lack of protection but passenger cars can be just as dangerous.
- Spinal Cord Injuries
The impact of a crash can cause a torque on the body. This can easily lead to the spine being injured and thus the nerves being injured. Often an injury like this will cause some form of paralysis below the level of injury. This leads to a life of disability and expensive medical costs.
If your vehicle catches fire after the crash or if your skin comes into contact with hot fluids, surfaces, or steam then you can suffer a burn. Serious burns require surgery and skin grafting to best heal you. Often these can even lead to a form of disability depending on where the burn happened.
- Fractured/Broken Bones
Broken legs, ribs, arms, ankles, and wrists are common in a car accident. The severity ranges from simple breaks that require a cast to break or compound fractures that need surgery to fix. Even the smallest broken bone can have you unable to do your job effectively making it hard to earn money.
- Lacerations and Bruises
It isn’t a shock that many people that have suffered from a car accident suffer lacerations. There is often broken glass, torn sheet metal, or even flying objects that can cause lacerations to your body. Bruises are also common as the impact against the seatbelt, or even other objects with force can cause them.
