Been involved in a car accident in Milford Haven?
There are numerous ways that a car accident in Milford, or anywhere, can occur – the more obvious among them being lapses in concentration or attempting to multi-task whilst at the wheel (it is not uncommon for people to operate mobile phones, apply make-up or even eat breakfast while driving!)
What kinds of injuries can a car accident create?
Drivers are afforded a certain amount of protection in crashes, with vehicles designed to absorb the force of an impact (or, at least, some of it). Often, people can still be damaged in a collision however, and here are some of the common injuries that people can sustain:
- Fractured and broken bones
- Road rash after being flung from the vehicle
- Head and/or brain injuries
- Back and spinal injuries
- Crushing impacts (an unsecured back seat passenger can be thrown into the seat in front, causing damage to the occupier)
