Car accident injuries may be minor, but they can also be devastating. Some car accident victims require extensive medical treatment long after the accident happens. Some of the most common injuries occurring in car accidents include the following:
Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs): Motor vehicle accidents are among the leading causes of traumatic brain injuries. This type of injury happens when damage to the brain occurs due to a forceful blow or piercing wound to the head. Approximately 20% of all TBI-related hospitalizations are due to motor vehicle crashes, with many deaths resulting as well.
Spinal Cord Injuries: An impact or sudden twist to the body may cause a spinal cord injury. The level of severity can vary, but spinal cord injuries often lead to partial or total paralysis. In these situations, consulting with an attorney specializing in spinal cord injuries is necessary to get the financial support you need to heal.
Internal Injuries: Anytime the body is impacted, there is the potential for suffering internal injuries and internal bleeding.
Broken Bones: The sheer force experienced in a car accident can cause fractured or broken bones throughout the body. This frequently happens to legs, arms, ribs, pelvis, and back.
Neck Injuries: Whiplash occurs with the violent whipping of the head, injuring the soft tissue in the neck. Such force can also cause disc injury and dislocation.
Car accidents can also result in various contusions, lacerations, and burns, all of which can cause substantial physical damage. As well as physical injuries, some auto accident victims develop post-traumatic stress disorder and emotional distress.
In Michigan, a no-fault state, your insurance company must provide compensation for medical expenses. However, if another’s negligent actions caused the accident, you may have other options available to you. Reach out to an experienced personal injury attorney who can review your case and provide legal advice.
