Injured in a Car Accident?

Common Car Accident Injuries

Newport News Car Accident Lawyer

A car does not have to be going fast to cause a serious accident and leave you suffering from major injuries. Injuries sustained in a car accident depend on many variables such as the speed of the vehicles involved and how the impact occurred.

The most common types of injuries caused by car accidents include:

  • Back injuries - The cushion-like disks which lay between each vertebrae can be injured in a car accident, leaving victims with difficulty breathing, tingling, numbness, and even paralysis. These cushions form joints which let you bend and move. Damaging them can also result in painful swelling and stiffness in the back.
  • Brain injuries - If the brain makes impact with the skull due to a car accident, this can lead to bleeding and swelling in the brain, resulting in a concussion and brain trauma. This can end up leaving the victim with speech, memory, or concentration problems, and even brain damage.
  • Facial injuries - A person’s face can be seriously hurt in a car accident, even if their airbag properly deploys. The airbag itself can sometimes break people’s noses or other facial bones. The head striking the dashboard or window can result in scarring and disfigurement.
  • Neck injuries - As with the back, discs between vertebrae can move, tear, or rupture in an accident, causing pain, weakness, or numbness.
  • Psychological trauma - The emotional trauma that can come with any serious accident can be detrimental to a person’s ability to work, socialize, and live their lives as they did prior to the accident.
