Car wreck injuries


What types of injuries can car wreck cause?

Car wreck injuries can be severe and have long-term effects for victims, some of the most common injuries are detailed below. Brain and head injuries are not uncommon in car accidents and even the slightest injury to the head and/or brain should be taken seriously as the damage may be more serious than you think. Brain injuries often occur with no sign of damage to the head such as bruises or cuts as the brain may have been injured by being jostled inside the skull causing internal bruising. Head and brain injuries occur when the head is hit by some object with force. The symptoms from this type of injury can vary from severe to mild depending on which part of the head and brain has been injured and the amount of force it has received.

Neck injuries are quite common in car crashes where the car has been hit from behind. Mild neck injuries include neck strain and whiplash but there are more severe injuries to the neck that can occur such as injury to the disc or cervical dislocation.

Moving down to the spinal cord, injuries in this part of the body happen when bone fragments or disc material is bruised or torn. These types of injuries are especially serious as it affects the nerves that carry brain signals around the body so can cause loss of feeling or function in parts of the body.

Back injuries from car accidents often happen in the lower back and include herniated discs, strains and vertebrae being fractured. These injuries also risk you losing some mobility and may not be apparent until some time after the car wreck so it is important that the back is checked over after an accident.

Facial injuries occur in accidents when the face makes contact with parts of the vehicle such as the dashboard, car seats or shattered glass. Mild facial injuries will involve bruises and cuts but serious injuries will often involve jaw and teeth damage. Internal injuries can also occur to important organs in the body such the liver, heart or lungs.
