Common car accident injuries

Unfortunately, car accidents are common in the Cary area. Almost every driver will get into at least one car accident in their driving lifetime. These accidents are usually minor fender-benders but, occasionally, a serious accident occurs that causes catastrophic injuries.

Injuries caused by car accidents are very common. There are certain types of injuries that are more common than others. Head and back injuries occur when a person's head hits the dashboard, steering wheel, or windows. These are often the most serious injuries that can occur and can cause traumatic brain injuries, skull fractures, memory problems, and other issues. Spinal cord problems can result in nerve damage or victims can become permanently paralyzed. Most people have heard about whiplash, which is another common car accident injury. Whiplash occurs when there is a sudden movement of the head or neck, such as in a rear-end collision. A person can suffer ligament pain, neck pain and swelling. Additional car accident injuries can include broken ribs, collapsed lungs, and appendage injuries.

If a person is injured in a car accident through no fault of their own, they may want to speak with a legal professional who is skilled in personal injury. An attorney can review the circumstances surrounding the accident and help the family get answers as to what happened. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, future medical expenses, pain and suffering and other damages.

No one expects that they will be injured in a car accident. But, for thousands of Americans each year, this becomes a reality. A car accident victim can suffer from the pain of the injury and the stress of expensive medical bills and lost wages. Victims of car accidents caused by negligent drivers may be entitled to compensation.
