Car accidents can create havoc in your life. The hope is that you didn’t get injured by the accident but many people suffer these types of injuries after they have been in a car wreck. The types of injuries are endless but some of the most common are:
Head Injuries: Closed and open head injuries can occur due to the accident. Often closed head injuries are harder to diagnose but there may be severe symptoms such as headaches, dizziness and confusion.
Neck Injuries: Neck pain is very common but there can be serious damage such as cervical spine injuries from mild to severe. Soft tissue damage or damage to discs can cause tremendous pain.
Spine Injuries: Spinal cord injuries can cause a huge range of problems such as paraplegia, quadriplegia and even bladder and bowel function problems.
Fractures: Fractures can occur anywhere in the body because of an accident, fractures need special care because a bone needs to heal properly from a fracture and casts or surgery may be necessary.
Contusions and Scrapes: Bruises and cuts can be very painful and it is important to seek medical attention because infection is always a possibility.
Whiplash: Whiplash is not a joking matter, whiplash is very painful. Whiplash needs to be treated and cared for properly and can signal more problems that can occur down the road.
