  7. 7. MOST COMMON INJURIES  TBI – Because of the size and speed involved in many truck accidents, the potential for a traumatic brain injury is always present. This sort of injury ranges in its effects from mild to severe, depending on the person and the crash.  Back Injury – As the back supports the weight of the body, being thrown around in an accident may cause undue pressure and, potentially, a break, strain or pull and may limit mobility.  Fractures and Broken Bones – While these may seem like relatively benign injuries, they can sometimes be fatal, can cause serious disruptions in everyday life, and result in permanent disability. Call us today at 404.593.2695 or 678-RESULTS.
  8. 8.  Neck and Spinal Cord Injury – As the spinal cord conveys messages from the brain to the rest of the body, any injury can be debilitating and potentially cause paralysis or death.  Whiplash – Whiplash often seems like a stereotype, but the reality is it may be a violent and life-changing injury, causing severe pain and discomfort.  PTSD – PTSD doesn’t just occur to soldiers and victims. Any trauma may have long- lasting psychological consequences that require ongoing medical attention and may severely hamper a person’s quality of life.
