Common Car Accident Injuries

Sometimes a car accident causing a personal injury cannot be avoided.  Even the best driver might suffer a moment of distraction, or lose control on a slippery road.  And any collision, regardless of the speed or number of vehicles involved, can cause serious injuries, which can take several weeks or months to heal from and recover.

   The most common personal injuries after a collision are:
  • Head injuries that can be include surface level damage such as cuts or bruises, or deeper damage including concussions and brain injuries.
  • Neck injuries, ranging from whiplash to injured discs and paralysis.
  • Shoulder injuries including sprains and broken bones, which can limit mobility and cause chronic pain if left untreated.
  • Spinal cord and back injuries, such as strains and injured vertebra.  These can be the more deceptive personal injuries, as their symptoms can sometimes take a long time to surface.
  • Internal injuries such as fractured ribs, organ damage, and internal bleeding.  These are some of the most dangerous injuries, and can be fatal if they are not treated immediately.
  • In cases of major accidents causing severe personal injuries or loss of life, psychological damage such as anxiety, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and depression.

What Should I Do After a Car Accident?

For best results after suffering a personal injury in a car accident – either for an insurance claim or a personal injury lawsuit – there are a number of steps you should take as soon as possible:
  • Stop and remain on the scene.  If there are any injuries or damage to any vehicles, contact 911.
  • Gather as much information as possible.  This includes documenting the scene and the accident as best you can, and getting the identifying information of whatever police officers appear on site, as well as a copy of the police report.  If there is another vehicle involved, this includes the license plate and insurance provider of the other vehicle, as well as the identity, contact information, and driver’s license number of the other driver.  Take pictures if you can.
  • Seek immediate medical attention for any injuries you have suffered, and have the attending doctor document them.  Also, have your family doctor conduct a thorough examination to find and document any additional injuries or emerging symptoms.
  • Document how any personal injuries you have suffered have impacted your life after the accident.  This includes any pain and suffering, no matter how small, as well as any impairment to your daily routine, from work to recreation.
