Common Car Accident Injuries
Injuries in a car accident may range from mild to severe. Some of the most devastating injuries do not appear right away; therefore, it is crucial to seek immediate medical care after an accident and attend all follow-up appointments. Typical car accident injuries include:
- Whiplash is the most common car accident injury. It is named for the fast, whip-like motion of a body from front to back. Whiplash can be very painful, and it can take weeks or months to heal
- Scrapes and cuts
- Head injuries and traumatic brain injuries. Traumatic brain injuries may cause long-term problems with brain function, headaches, and sleeping difficulties. Brain injuries are sometimes difficult to diagnose a brain injury and require a treatment plan to avoid lifelong complications
- Broken ribs
- Broken and fractured bones
- Internal bleeding
- Herniated discs, spinal cord injuries, and paralysis
- Knee trauma
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Emotional trauma
Causes of Car Accidents
There are many causes of car accidents. However, the number one reason for car accidents is not a weather condition or road hazard. It is distracted driving.
Distracted driving occurs when a driver is not paying attention to the road. Usually, this happens when a driver is talking or texting on their cell phone, eating, or looking elsewhere in the vehicle. Other reasons for car accidents may be the following:
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Reckless driving
- Road rage
- Inclement weather
- Failure to follow traffic signals
- Inexperienced drivers
- Driving at night
- Vehicle design defects
- Road hazards or construction
- Drowsy driving
- Poor vehicle maintenance
