Most Common Car Accident Injuries

Car accidents can result in a variety of injuries to just about any region of your body. The severity of these injuries often depends on factors such as speed at which the vehicles were traveling and the location of the impact on each vehicle. While some car accident injuries are minor and heal on their own, others are catastrophic in nature and require extensive medical treatment and a long recovery time.
Based on the car accident lawsuits and insurance claims filed, it is clear that some car accident injuries occur more often than others. Some of the most common include:

  • Brain injuries – Brain injuries are some of the most common injuries suffered in car accidents. These injuries range in severity from mild concussions to serious traumatic brain injuries that may require lifelong care. In many cases, it may take days or weeks for brain injury symptoms to develop. If you suffered a blow to the head in your car accident, seek medical attention immediately to make sure you did not sustain a brain injury.
  • Neck injuries – The most common neck injury resulting from a car accident is whiplash, which frequently occurs as part of a rear-end collision.
  • Back injuries – A variety of back injuries commonly occur after a car accident. Depending on the location and force of the impact, you may suffer a strain, fracture, disc injury, spinal cord injury, or lumbar spinal injury.
  • Facial injuries – During a car accident, it is easy to hit your face on the steering wheel, dashboard, windshield or airbag, resulting in injuries such as scrapes, bruises, lacerations, and fractures.
  • Broken bones – Broken bones sustained during a car accident can often be serious due to the impact of the collision. In many cases, you may need surgery to remove bone fragments.
