North Carolina Personal Injury Law Firm Helps Accident Victims Recover
A car accident can result in a number of different injuries to many parts of the body, depending upon the circumstances surrounding the collision and the force of the impact, but some injuries tend to be more common than others:
One of the most common injuries sustained in a car accident is a closed head injury, which can include anything from a mild concussion to a traumatic brain injury. Even when there are no outward signs of physical injury, the brain is at great risk of being jolted around inside the skull due to the impact of a motor vehicle crash, and bruising and other serious injuries may result.
Another type of injury that often results from car accidents is neck injuries, which can range from neck strain and whiplash to pinched cervical nerves and herniated discs. Neck injuries can cause extreme pain in the neck, shoulders, arms or hands, severe headaches, numbness, weakness, and muscle spasms.
Many back injuries, including strains, sprains, fractures, and spine injuries result from the impact of a motor vehicle accident. Like neck injuries, back injury symptoms sometimes take time to manifest after an accident, and back injuries often cause long lasting pain and discomfort.
Being involved in a car crash can be a terrifying experience, especially when severe physical injuries are involved. As a result, drivers and passengers often suffer from short or long term emotional distress, have trouble sleeping, and may even develop conditions that mirror post-traumatic stress disorder.
