We know that millions of crashes occur each year. Unfortunately, they result in severe injuries. You should recognize your right to pursue compensation if you suffer harm because of someone else’s negligent actions. Below, we will detail the common injuries people sustain in crashes and how they can impact your life.
The impact from a crash most commonly causes whiplash, leading to long-term neck damage. While many people experience stiffness and pain because of whiplash, they can also experience long-term tenderness, tingling and numbness, dizziness, and blurred vision. Whiplash is often the most common injury in rear-end collisions.
When one car collides with another, it creates a significant impact. Every passenger inside is vulnerable, and it can result in severe back injuries. Herniated discs and spine injuries are common following car accidents, especially when vehicles collide at high speeds.
Many drivers suffer severely broken bones because they stiffen up to brace for the impact of the crash. Unfortunately, tensing up is more dangerous. It’s best if passengers try to relax — even though it’s challenging to do when a collision occurs. Severely broken bones can require ongoing care, especially if the bone punctures through and out of your skin.
Car accidents can also cause traumatic brain injuries, lacerations, limb loss, and other long-term damages. It’s crucial to seek compensation when you suffer severe damages because of someone else’s negligence.
