What Are Some Common Car Accident Injuries?

June 14, 2022 in Uncategorized | MARTIN WREN, P.C. | LEAVE A COMMENT

No two car accidents are the same. There are an infinite amount of possibilities for every accident, and every variation can make your case a little bit more complicated to manage. The same rule applies to injuries. Some accidents leave you shaken and disoriented, and some leave you in intensive care.

Whiplash is one of the most common car accident injuries – especially in rear end collisions. Whiplash is caused by the rapid back-and-forth jerking of your head and neck in a sudden impact, and it can cause soreness and even a lack of mobility if left untreated.

Burns also occur in car accidents. While not every accident turns into a huge fireball, it’s still possible to accidentally burn yourself on some newly-exposed machinery that was tucked away safely before the impact moved it out into the open. Engines are hot, and if you come in contact with engine components, or hot coolant when you’re exiting your vehicle, you’re going to get burnt.

Brain injuries are especially dangerous. The brain is a fragile organ, and even a minor accident can cause lasting damage if you don’t get to a hospital right away. Severe and long-lasting brain injuries aside, even common concussions can completely derail your life if they don’t get proper attention as soon as possible.

What is the Cost of a Car Accident?

The cost of a car accident varies, just like the type of car accident itself and the types of injuries you may be dealing with. Unfortunately, you can’t count on insurance to cover everything. A car accident goes beyond repairs and a hospital stay – it also means lost wages from those days you weren’t able to clock in for work.

The true cost of a car accident depends on the type of accident and injury you’re dealing with, and whether or not you get in touch with a car accident lawyer who can help you get the compensation you deserve.
