Car accidents are responsible for millions of injuries every year that can be either minor, life threatening or even fatal. Car accidents can involve head-on crashes; rear-end collisions, side-swipes, failure to yield the right of way, improper lane changes, distracted drivers, multiple vehicle crashes, rollovers, and hit and runs.

Common Injuries Sustained in Car Accidents:

  • Leg and foot injuries and amputations
  • Psychological trauma
  • Severe burns
  • Paralysis
  • Wrongful death

In the majority of car accident injuries, negligence was a contributing factor to the accident. Negligence can occur in the form of aggressive or careless driving behaviors, driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or driving while texting or talking on a cell phone.

Car Accident Injuries and the Need to Seek Medical Treatment

Not all car accident injuries are obvious immediately after what you may consider was a minor car accident. A rear-end collision that results in minor damage to your car, can have devastating and lasting effects on your spinal cord in the form of a whip lash injury. An untreated spinal cord injury can leave you permanently disabled for life if left untreated.

You should always seek medical attention after a car accidenteven if you feel you have escaped serious injury. Medical reports from first responders and other healthcare providers will be used as evidence in any future legal claims initiated by the accident. Your refusal to seek medical care will minimize the seriousness of your injuries at the time of the car accident.
