Common Car Accident Injuries
Car accidents typically cause injuries in the head, neck, and ligaments. We’ve compiled a list of common injuries seen in auto accidents.
Head and brain injuries are some of the most common injuries seen in a car accident because the head can be jostled unnaturally and the head can hit the interior of the car on impact.
Neck injuries are also caused by the fast movement of the body during the impact of an accident. Neck injuries are usually seen in the form of whiplash and strained muscles of the neck.
Spinal and back injuries are also common. Sprains and strains of the lower back muscles can be mild to severe, while more serious injuries like herniated discs and fractured vertebrae can limit movement and cause extreme pain.
The impact of a collision or strain against a seat belt can cause injuries to the chest and sternum region of the body. When chest injuries are seen, it is important to check for internal injuries and bleeding immediately.
