Common Auto Accident Injuries
Whiplash is tenderness, pain, and/or muscle spasms in the neck. Whiplash is caused by a sudden impact and can even be experienced in auto accidents at very low speeds. Whiplash is not always apparent until the days following an accident. If you or a loved one are showing signs of whiplash, see a doctor immediately.
Broken bones are commonly suffered as a result of auto accidents. Whether you suffer a minor fracture or a severe osteopathic injury you are entitled to compensation. It is important to remember that broken ribs can be especially dangerous as they can puncture internal organs causing major complications. If you believe that you or a loved one has suffered a broken bone see a medical professional immediately.
Head and brain injuries are very dangerous and can lead to life long pain and/or suffering as well as death. If you believe that you or anyone else has suffered a head or brain injury, call for emergency medical help immediately.
Spine and neck injuries are also incredibly dangerous; trauma to either can cause paralysis and even death. If you believe that you or someone else has suffered a neck or spinal injury, call 911 immediately.
It is always wise to see a doctor following an auto accident. He or she will be able to give you a complete exam and determine if you have suffered any injuries. You will need a medical report to begin the insurance claim process if you are attempting to recover damages for an injury. Once your doctor has determined the severity of your injuries, contact an auto accident attorney right away.
