What types of injuries are common in car accidents?

Car accidents can result in a variety of serious injuries that can damage victims. Out of greater than 5.6 million car accidents reported in 2012, more than 30,000 of them were fatal and 1.6 million car accidents resulted in other types of injuries. The costs of car accidents can be immense. The total economic impact of car accidents is estimated to be $277 billion every year.

Some types of injuries are unfortunately common in motor vehicle accidents. Head, back and spinal cord injuries are serious injuries victims can suffer in car accidents. In addition, car accidents can result in brain injuries ranging from concussions to traumatic brain injuries. Victims may also suffer neck and chest injuries including whiplash injuries. Victims may suffer other types of soft tissue injuries in a car accident as well.

Damages to arms, legs, hands and feet are also common in car accidents and broken bone injuries are not uncommon for victims to suffer in a car accident. Victims are also likely to suffer emotional damages as a result of a car accident. Because of how serious and costly car accident injuries and damages are, compensation for damages may be available through a personal injury claim for damages.

A personal injury claim for damages can help victims recover compensation for the physical, financial and emotional damages from a negligent driver responsible for the harm they suffered. A negligent driver may be liable to help victims with the medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering damages following a car accident.
