8 of the Most Common Car Accident Injuries

  1. 1. 8 OF THE MOST COMMON CAR ACCIDENT INJURIES These are the injuries people typically experience after getting into a car wreck.
  2. 2. 1. Head injuries  Head injuries include damage to the eyes, ears, mouth, nose, or any other facial feature. These types of injuries can result in blindness, loss of hearing, jaw fractures, or loss of teeth.
  3. 3. 2. Brain injuries  A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be a mild concussion, which can be recovered from quite easily, or a severe injury that impairs speech, vision, and other critical functions.
  4. 4. 3. Neck and back injuries  Whiplash is a common car accident injury because the neck stretches and quickly snaps back into place when a car either suddenly stops or accelerates.  The vertebrae, ligaments, disks, or spinal cord can be damaged from whiplash. This in turn can cause paralysis or loss of function in other parts of the body.
  5. 5. 4. Foot injuries  It’s not uncommon for feet, ankles, and toes to be strained, sprained, or broken in a car accident.
  6. 6. 5. Leg injuries  Legs are extremely susceptible to injury because the lower half of the body can get easily smashed by another car. Leg injuries range from minor bruises to multiple fractures.
  7. 7. 6. Knee injuries  If knees are abruptly twisted or turned, the meniscus (the cartilage in the knee) can tear. This can cause extreme discomfort and an inability to walk.
  8. 8. 7. Chest injuries  If a driver or passenger did not have a seat belt on, the impact of the collision can break ribs and possibly the sternum. However, air bags have reduced the severity of these injuries.
  9. 9. 8. Abdominal injuries  Hip fractures and injuries to abdominal organs are very common in front-impact and side- impact auto accidents. Organs that tend to get the most damage are the liver, spleen, and kidneys.
