Common Auto Accident Injuries

Whiplash, which occurs when impact causes the head to snap beyond its normal range of motion, is the most commonly reported injury in car accidents. Although the effects of whiplash are usually temporary, it is generally accompanied by pain and limited mobility, and it may require chiropractic care.

Whiplash and other types of musculoskeletal damage that result from the trauma of motor vehicle accidents can require time away from work and necessitate rehabilitative care. Broken or fractured bones suffered in car accidents can also temporarily impair your ability to work and result in the need for expensive follow-up care.

Severe Injuries in Car Accidents

All too often, car accidents result in catastrophic injuries. These injuries can force life-altering changes on victims and their families and require lifelong medical attention.

Common catastrophic injuries in car accidents include:

These injuries and other severe injuries such as disfigurement or the loss of a limb can leave families facing physical, emotional and monetary burdens.
