Types of Auto Accident Injuries

Car accidents often involve high speeds and high levels of force. This combination can lead to drivers and passengers suffering serious injuries—even in cars with advanced air bags and seatbelts. Car accident injuries can range from cuts and bruises to more severe injuries that cause disability and even paralysis.

Common Injuries

Some of the most common injuries in car accidents are:

  • Cuts and Lacerations
    Car accidents often result in shattered windshields and windows. Broken glass may strike the occupants of vehicles, leading to deep cuts and severe bleeding.
  • Broken Bones
    Occupants’ legs, arms, hands, and feet can contact the insides of vehicles during car accidents. This force can fracture or break bones throughout the body.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
    Even when secured by seatbelts, car accident victims can experience rapid movement of the torso or neck during collisions. This movement can damage the neck and spine, leading to paralysis.

These injuries can lead to expensive medical bills and loss of independence—as well as lost wages and permanent disability.
