6 Common Car Accident Injuries
Back and Neck “Whiplash” Injuries
A whiplash is the most common kind of car accident injury. These are often caused by the sudden, violent jerking motion of the neck and back resulting from a collision. Symptoms include pain that occurs with or without movement, muscle spasms, and, without proper treatment, may lead to more severe spinal cord and nerve injuries. Although whiplash injuries are often considered minor, they can lead to chronic, debilitating pain over time without proper treatment.
Soft Tissue Injuries
Car accident injuries often involve some form of soft tissue damage. This kind of injury includes strained muscles and sprained ligaments or tendons. They don’t involve visible breaks in the skin or broken bones and are typically localized in the muscles of the shoulders, neck, and back. They may also include contusions or bruises. These injuries are caused by the impact of a crash and can cause pain and soreness that lasts for an extended period.
Cuts, Lacerations, and Fractures
When car accidents happen, the combination of broken glass and crumpled steel can both pierce the skin and crush bones. Broken windshields and windows can cause severe cuts and lacerations that require immediate medical treatment. Additionally, the crushing impact of steel can cause multiple fractures that may take a long time to heal. Fractures can also cause prolonged and severe pain.
Back and Spinal Cord Injuries
A car accident may cause a serious enough injury such as a spinal cord fracture that instantly causes paralysis or even death. However, even minor crashes can cause cervical disc injuries or nerve damage. These injuries are often accompanied by debilitating and chronic pain that radiates into a person’s extremities, affect his or her mobility, and may last for the victim’s lifetime. Treatment may include non-surgical care, such as physical therapy, but more often than not, surgery is required for long-term relief.
Brain and Head Injuries
Speed-related accidents often result in concussions or other forms of head trauma. Visible signs of injury may accompany some head trauma, but often these injuries are closed and do not present with outward signs. A collision can present an extreme risk of violent impact to the brain in the skull, which can cause brain bleeds, bruising, or other traumatic brain injuries. Unfortunately, these injuries are not always immediately apparent and may take some time to surface.
Psychological and Mental Trauma
Serious car accidents may cause trauma that is not only physical but also psychological. Recurring anxiety and panic attacks may develop after an accident, and, in some instances, a victim may suffer from post-traumatic stress.
