Common Types of Car Accident Injuries
Virginia Auto Accident Injury Lawyers
These types of injuries are associated with very severe crashes, and are one of the most serious types of accident injuries. Brain damage is often caused by an injury to the brain that causes swelling, bruising, bleeding, skull fracture or nerve damage. Brain injuries can be temporary or permanent, which has an impact on the length of recovery and the impact on the accident victim.
This type of injury is linked to motor vehicle accidents with severe impact. Broken bones or bone fractures require immediate medical care but are generally treatable.
Head and Neck Injury
Neck injuries are often referred to as whiplash and are one of the most common types of car accident injuries. They occur when the neck and head are jerked in opposite directions due to a crash. These types of injuries occur in the majority of accidents, and can be both severe in nature or relatively minor. Other head injuries vary, from concussions, which is usually treatable and temporary to traumatic brain damage which may be much more serious and pose permanent injury.
Lacerations and Burns
This injury is also associated with serious accidents. These injuries often take a long time to heal but are rarely debilitating. Unfortunately, accident victims sometimes are left with permanent scars.
Paralysis and Spinal Cord Injury
Spinal cord injury and paralysis usually occur in very serious accidents. While paralysis is often present immediately and victims injuries range from paraplegia to quadriplegia, symptoms of spinal cord injury may not appear for days following a crash. Paralysis can be a permanent disability and one of the worst types of injuries that car accident victims endure. Spinal cord injuries vary from fractures to ruptured discs and sprains, and victims should seek immediate medical treatment.
This is the worst scenario in any accident, where the family members of the deceased may be entitled to recover financial remedy. Families can seek compensation for medical bills, funeral expenses, pain and suffering and lost wages.
