Car accidents can be one of the most traumatic experiences in one’s life. In addition to the stress and anxiety associated with such a devastating event, individuals are often left confused as to how to pay for their medical bills, and how to support themselves and their families during their recovery. Sadly, insurance companies aren’t there for you when you need them most. Their objective in these moments is to pay you as little as possible. Insurance companies can dismiss the most common types of injuries caused by car accidents. They may not believe that your injuries are serious, and sometimes even blame you for injuries caused in an accident.
If you have been injured in a car accident, you can rest assured that our attorneys at Chris and Frank will be by your side every step of the way until we reach a fair settlement for your injuries and damages. Here is a list of common injuries resulting from car accidents:
Top 5 Injuries Caused by Car Accidents
- Closed Head Injuries
A closed head injury occurs when the brain has been traumatized yet the outer appearance of the head appears to be without much in the way of a visible injury such as a laceration or other external wound.
- Orthopedic Injuries
These injury-types often include broken bones, but they can also include strained or sprained muscles and torn ligaments or tendons.
Whiplash is a common soft-tissue injury. Some common symptoms of whiplash our clients have experienced include: headaches, jaw or neck pain, vertigo, radiating pain in the arms, back and legs, ear ringing and dizziness.
- Spinal Injuries
Most paralysis victims will experience a loss of function or sensation below the injured portion of the spinal cord.
- Emotional Stress
A person may become afflicted by post-traumatic stress disorder. Those afflicted by PTSD may have a hard time sleeping. The person may relive the event over and over again throughout the day, rehearsing the sequence of events leading up to and after the crash.
