The Most Common Car Accident Injuries

The Most Common Car Accident Injuries

Car accidents can cause any number of different injuries, to virtually any part of your body, depending on the circumstances of the crash and the severity of the impact. But the most common car accident injuries are easy to identify.

Brain & Head Injuries- Among the most common injuries is a closed head injury, which can range from a mild concussion to a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Even with no physical sign of trauma (i.e. cuts or bruises), the brain is at risk of being jostled inside the skull because ofthe impact of a car crash, so that bruising and other injuries can result.

Neck Injuries- Another common car accident injury are neck injuries, which can occur in more mild forms such as whiplash and neck strain, but also as more serious injuries like cervical radiculopathy and disc injury. These kinds of neck injuries often take a day or more to make themselves known by the victim.

Back Injuries- The impact of a car accident and the resulting torque on the bodies of those inside can cause back injuries such as a sprain, strain, fracture, disc injury, thoracic spine injury, lumbar radiculopathy, and lumbar spine injury. Like neck injuries, sometimes the symptoms of even the most serious back injuries can take a while to show up after an accident,and just as often a back injury can cause long-lasting pain and discomfort.

Face Injuries- In a car accident, injuries to the face can be caused by almost anything, including a steering wheel, dashboard, airbag, windshield, side window,car seats or shattered glass.These injuries range in severity from scrapes and bruises, to laceration andfractures – even seriousdental injuries.

Whether a major accident or a minor ‘fender-bender’, it makes sense to visit the health care experts at the TBC Accident Clinic, who can provide same-day professional injury evaluations, treatment plans and even medications for patients injured in car accidents.

The most common types of injuries – such as back pain or a neck injury – are very likely to occur in any accident.
