Five Common Car Collision Injuries

whiplashAn auto accident, even when not fatal, is a very traumatic incident for the victims and their family members. Along with the physical trauma, there is a lot of mental distress that one goes through after an auto accident. In major accidents, people have often walked out unharmed, while some minor accidents have caused unexpected fatal injuries. What accident will end what way can never be predicted. Thus, it is often best to take all precautions while driving.

The injuries suffered by the victims depend on various factors like the circumstances of the accident, the positions of the passengers, whether seat belts were worn or not, the type of collision, the intensity of the accident etc.

In an accident, the victims commonly suffer from cuts and scrapes due to broken glass, or when hit by other smaller objects in the car which are thrown around due to the impact of the accident. These are relatively minor injuries, but there are certain other major orthopedic injuries which are common and should be watched for before they start giving serious trouble.

  •  Brain and Head Injuries

One of the most common injuries is that to the head or the brain. These can range from a mild scar, bruise, or concussion to a skull fracture or internal brain injury. At times, there is no external physical sign of trauma to the head but the impact of the accident jostles the brain and can cause bleeding. A severe brain injury can lead to severe physical damage. A permanent disability, nerve damage or vision loss or hearing loss can occur depending on the part of the brain which is injured.
