Typical car accident injuries

Although no one wants to be in a car accident, many Cary residents will unfortunately experience one. Car accident injuries can range from mild to serious, even death. Typical car accident injuries can either show up right away or take days to appear. Accordingly, car accident victims should be aware of the types of injuries they may suffer.

One common car accident injury is head and back injuries. Head injuries are serious and can occur when a person's head strikes a windshield or the steering wheel. They can cause concussions or a traumatic brain injury. Head injuries can last for several months, years or even a lifetime, and they can require extensive treatment.

Damage to the spinal cord can cause nerve damage, where victims lose control in their arms, hands, feet, legs or other body parts. Some more serious forms of spinal cord damage leave victims paralyzed.

Neck and chest injuries can also occur. Whiplash is a common injury caused by the sudden movement of the neck, like in a rear-end collision. Whiplash causes neck pain and can last quite a long time. Collapsed lungs and broken ribs are also common chest injuries. Internal organ damage can also occur.

Luckily, the law allows accident victims to seek compensation for these current and future medical expenses, pain and suffering and other damages. But, to get this compensation, victims usually need to consult a professional.

Specifically, a personal injury or car accident attorney. This legal professional can visit the scene, review police reports, interview witnesses and figure out what happened and who is responsible. Then, the attorney can seek justice and compensation.
