Car accident injuries can be widespread

Obviously, there are many reasons why you never want to be part of a car accident. Not only can it damage your vehicle, but it can result in a variety of serious injuries that have the potential to change your life forever.

It's important to always remember that car accident injuries can be widespread. In other words, depending on the type of accident, you could suffer more than one type of injury.

Here are some of the most common types of injuries, all of which you need to check for following a crash:

  • Head injuries. These are among the most serious, and can include things such as a concussion, traumatic brain injury and bleeding on the brain. While some head injuries present immediate symptoms, it's possible that these could remain dormant for several hours.
  • Back and neck injuries. Just the same as head injuries, these are very common. Back and neck injuries can range from minor to severe. From a pulled muscle to a spinal fracture, you should be aware of all the things that could go wrong with your back and neck in an accident.
  • Chest injuries. Due to all the jostling that can occur during an accident, a chest injury is a possibility. For example, if your vehicle is struck from behind, your chest could hit the steering wheel with extreme force.
  • Broken bones. This covers pretty much every bone in your body, as you never know which one could be impacted in an accident. Broken legs, arms, feet and hands are common.
  • Lacerations and burns. Depending on the type of accident, lacerations and/or burns could come into play. These can worsen if not treated in a fast and effective manner.

While it's possible to walk away from a car accident uninjured, you should never assume that this will happen. It's better to be safe than sorry, which means obtaining treatment and following the advice of your medical team.

As you learn more about the cause of the accident, you should begin to think about how to file an insurance claim and the best way to protect your legal rights.
