The Most Common Injuries Sustained In Traffic Accidents
During an accident, extreme forces can cause severe physical injuries, such as:
1
Whiplash
An accident injury that is most commonly sustained is whiplash. The head and neck are violently thrown forward during whiplash due to sudden impact. Often, whiplash occurs in rear-end collisions. However, it can also happen in head-on and T-bone collisions. No doubt, whiplash accidents can leave a victim in terrible pain for weeks, months, and even years after the accident.
2
Broken Bones
Broken bones most commonly cause traffic accident injuries. Your musculoskeletal structure may not be able to withstand the force of a crash. Hands, arms, and legs are often broken in traffic accidents.
3
Cuts / Abrasions / Gashes
Many directions seem to be thrown in the order of metal and glass when an accident occurs. Free-flying shrapnel threatens the lives of occupants. Human skin can easily be cut or abraded by broken glass and metal.
4
Severe Bruises
Even if the occupants of a vehicle are restrained, the blunt force of an accident can toss them around. You can suffer severe bruising to your soft muscle tissue and bones when you strike any part of your body hard.
5
Burns
A traffic accident often results in severe burns caused by heat, fire, or seatbelts. Burn victims can be left with permanent scars and blisters due to their injuries.
6
Organ Damage/Internal Bleeding
Car accidents often rupture or puncture internal organs. Trauma caused by blunt force can often shake a person to the core. Accidents may jostle and severely damage a person's internal organs and cause bleeding inside the body. As a result of breaking bones, such as your ribs, your lungs can also be punctured.
7
Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)
The number of brain injuries in traffic accidents is too high. The windows, windshield dashboard, steering wheel, or steering column may cause occupants to hit their heads. A traumatic brain injury can be temporary or permanent, but it requires immediate attention - even a concussion, considered a TBI. The effects of brain injuries can include memory loss, lack of consciousness, excruciating headaches, and other complications.
8
Spinal Cord Injuries
It is common for car accidents to cause spinal injuries. There is a possibility of severing the vertebral cord, crushing vertebrae, or rupturing discs depending on the severity of the crash. Paralysis can result from some spinal injuries. It may be necessary for others to have major surgery, physical therapy, or a lifelong regimen of pain management and mobility.
Limited Timeframes For Recovering Compensation
According to California law, plaintiffs must file their claims two years after their injury or accident. As an exception, plaintiffs whose injuries are discovered later or who are minors may be able to file a claim after this deadline.
You have only a limited time to file a claim, so you must act quickly. Once the deadline has passed, you will no longer be able to file a claim. Injuries require immediate attention, so you should contact an attorney immediately.
Getting Back on Track After a Car Accident
When you are involved in an accident, it can ruin a lot more than just your day. Here are a few tips to ensure you don’t cause more damage than you anticipated:
  • Report the accident to 911 and make sure everyone is okay. Calling 911 will be helpful in a catastrophic injury and permit formal documentation, which might save you a lot of time and money.
  • Make sure you stay put! Regardless of how minor the damage appears, do not drive away.
  • Make sure you’re in a safer place.
    • Make sure your hazard lights are on and assess the situation.
    • Seek immediate medical attention if you are injured or if your car is totaled. Don’t move your vehicle. A police investigation may be required for any incident more contentious than a fender bender. The best thing to do in these cases is to avoid disturbing the evidence.
    • Standing far away from moving cars is a good idea if it is dark outside or near a busy road. If you have a flashlight in your glove compartment, grab it. Ensure the evidence is not tampered with before you leave the scene.
  • Contact your insurance agent to find out what information they need. Listen to any advice based on their experience, your coverage, and your role in the accident.
  • Ensure you exchange insurance and contact information with the other vehicle’s driver.
  • If you need to file a claim, follow your agent’s instructions and consider whether repairs are required.
