Common Auto Accident Injuries

Unfortunately, when auto accidents occur, injuries are extremely common. This is to be expected, since this collision is often forceful and can jar the bodies of those in the vehicles quite violently. The kind of accident and how impactful it is can greatly affect the severity of the injuries sustained, however, as well as the type. For instance, injuries from a major rollover accident with multiple vehicles involved are usually more severe than those that are caused by a minor sideswipe accident that resulted from a lane change.

Now, this is not always the case, and some injuries may not be immediately apparent on the scene of the accident. Regardless of what kind of injury was sustained, and how severe it is, however, all injuries should be taken seriously and treated with care. Any degree of injury can affect your life and your quality of living, and compensation for such suffering should be obtained.

Types of Injuries

As previously mentioned, there are many kinds of injuries that can result from being involved in a car accident. In addition, the severity of these injuries can differ as well. Though there are many variations of injuries that can be sustained, these are the most common that occur.

Back Injuries

The most common kinds of back injuries that occur in car accidents are spinal fractures, herniated discs, and spondylolisthesis. Spinal fractures, as the name suggests, are fractures that occur to the spinal column, most commonly compression fractures. Herniated discs are when the cushions in between the vertebrae experience a shift, thus resulting in compressed or bulging discs. Spondylolisthesis is when the vertebrae themselves get shifted out of place. All of these injuries can result in chronic pain, numbness or tingling, or even loss of motor function or paralyzation.

Brain Injuries

The most common kinds of brain injuries from auto accidents are concussions and contusions. Concussions are when the brain comes into contact with the inside of the skull, usually from an abrupt force or impact. This force can also lead to contusions, which are essentially a bruise on the brain. These injuries can cause chronic pain, brain function loss and even brain death.

Head Injuries

The most common head injuries that occur in a car accident are concussions and contusions (discussed previously), and penetrating head injuries. This penetration can be from a number of things, but is usually when debris from the accident penetrates the skull. This can have serious effects, and may even result in a brain injury as well.

Neck Injuries

The most common kinds of neck injuries sustained from car accidents are whiplash, neck strain, and disc injuries. Whiplash is a fairly familiar injury, and is caused by a sudden stop or impact. Severe whiplash can even caused permanent damage to ligaments or muscles. Neck strain is any injury that occurs to the muscles in the neck area. Disc injuries can be herniated or shifted discs within the neck area.
