Common Injuries From Car Accidents

car-accident-injuries

Hundreds of thousands of car accident injuries occur in the United States every year, ranging from minor bumps and bruises to catastrophic injuries that result in permanent disabilities or even death.

While car accidents can cause a wide range of injuries, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) ranks the following injuries in the “top five,” based on data collected and analyzed by the federal government every year.

  • Head and brain injuries: One-third of all head and brain injuries in the U.S. every year result from car accidents, according to the CDC. Brain injuries like concussions can cause harm even if no external damage is present.
  • Spinal cord injuries: Damage to the spinal cord can cause loss of feeling or control in areas of the body below the injury site. If the spinal cord is severed, paralysis may result.
  • Facial injuries: Broken bones, severe bruising, and damage to soft tissues can easily occur during a car accident, causing serious injuries and disfigurement.
  • Neck injuries: While “whiplash” or neck strain is a common car accident neck injury, it is not the only type of damage that may occur. Broken bones or damage to the spinal cord within the neck can also result.
  • Back injuries: Low back injuries including strains, herniated discs, fractured vertebrae, and other injuries can occur during an accident, causing disability and severe pain.

Because many car accident victims suffer multiple injuries, you may find that you have more than one of these injuries, or that you have other injuries that are not listed. Seeing a doctor as soon as possible after your accident will help you ensure your injuries are diagnosed and treated promptly.
