Motor vehicle accidents can cause severe and debilitating injuries that can affect almost any part of the body. Yet, while the injuries that result will usually depend on the circumstances of the accident, there are certain types of injuries that tend to develop following a car accident more frequently than others.

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

traumatic brain injury (TBI) is an injury that results from a blow, forceful bump, or jolt to the head or body. It can also result when an object pierces the skull and enters the brain.

While a traumatic brain injury can cause people to suffer short-term problems, including how they think, act, communicate, and move, it can also cause severe and permanent disability and, in some instances, even death.

Spinal Cord Injuries

spinal cord injury refers to damage to any part of the spinal cord or the nerves at the end of the spinal canal. These injuries can cause a person to experience permanent changes in their body functions, strength, and other sensations.

Internal Trauma

When a motor vehicle accident causes the body to be thrown into an object or get hit by some debris, the force can damage the internal organs or cause internal bleeding. Internal injuries need to be evaluated by a doctor quickly, as emergency surgery may be required to stop the problem from escalating further.

Broken Bones

Car accident victims tend to suffer from broken legs, arms, wrists, ankles, ribs, and even a broken pelvis. Depending on the circumstances of the crash, these breaks can range in severity and result in compound fractures, which may require surgery to repair.

Disfiguring Injuries and Scars

During a car crash, the impact from being thrown into the window, dash, windshield, or any other hard surface can lead to serious facial injuries and disfigurement. These injuries may require surgeries to try to correct the problem. However, even with medical intervention, they can still leave lasting scars.
