Common Car Accident Injuries

Car accidents can cause many different types of injuries which can vary in severity.  However, there are certain types of injuries which are commonly sustained when car accidents take place.  There are some injuries which are relatively minor, but there are some which can be extremely serious and even result in permanent damage, disability and death.

Here are some of the common types of car accident injuries.

Cuts and lacerations

Torn sheets of metal and broken glass inside the car can cause cuts and lacerations.  The severity of the injury depends on the seriousness of the impact.  If simple cuts are sustained, they will heal within a period of few days or weeks.  They may require few stitches.  However, if the victim sustains deep lacerations which has resulted in loss of blood, then surgery may be required.

Broken bones

Fractures and broken bones are commonly sustained in car accidents.  These can include simple breaks as well as compound fractures where the broken bone pierces through the skin.  Bones in any part of the body can break when a car accident takes place.  However, the wrists, legs, ankles, pelvis and ribs are mainly affected in car accidents.

Neck, back and spinal injuries

Whiplash is a common car accident injury.  It happens when the head moves in a violent motion following an impact which forces the neck to stretch outside its normal range.  This strains tendons, muscles and ligaments.  The back and the spin can also be affected when the neck becomes injured in car accidents.

Spinal injuries can result in severe pain as well as temporary or permanent paralysis. It can also result in loss of movement and sensation.

Internal injuries

The internal organs can be severely damaged following a massive crash.  A punctured lung or injuries to the liver, pancreas and spleen can be sustained when major car accidents take place.
