Most Common Car Injuries

More than three million people are injured each year in car accidents. Car accidents can cause just about every time of traumatic injury to the body depending on factors such as:

  • Speed of the cars
  • Was the person wearing a seatbelt?
  • Did the person’s car get hit from the rear, side or front?
  • Was the occupant facing straight ahead in the seat? Or was the person’s head or body turned in a certain direction?
  • Did the car have airbags and did they deploy?

It is common for people to not immediately feel the severity of their injuries after a car accident. It is often hours and sometimes days or weeks before the severity of the injury is known. It is important and recommended to be checked out by a doctor following the accident even if you feel fine.

If you have been in a car accident, it is important to be aware of the most common injuries so that you can pay attention to your body and be aware of possible injuries. These include:

  • Neck Injuries
    • You may suffer from whiplash, disc herniation, strain, or sprain.
  • Brain Injuries
    • Medical science is just beginning to understand the implications of brain trauma. What seems like a mild concussion can have lifelong consequences.
  • Back Injuries
    • Injuries to the back can include disc herniation, sprain, strain, and broken bones in the back. If the accident damages nerves in spine you can have pain radiating into the arms and legs, or loss of use and strengths in the arms and legs.
  • Arm and Shoulder Injuries
    • These may be a sort of sprain, strain, dislocation, a break, bruising, torn rotator cuffs, or deep cuts.
  • Leg, Knee and Foot Injuries
    • Injuries to the legs and feet can range from deep cuts, bruising, broken bones, sprain, strain, knee and foot wounds.
