Common Auto Accident Injuries

Auto accidents, also known as car crashes, are a leading cause of injury and death. Every year, millions of people are injured or die in auto accidents throughout the nation. When serious car accidents aren’t fatal, they often cause long-term, disabling injuries. At the El Dabe Ritter Trial Lawyers, we can help you if you’ve been injured. Contact Us today for help getting justice after an auto accident. 

Most Common Auto Accident Injuries

Some of the most common auto accident injuries include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries. A traumatic brain injury, or TBI, can cause complications to thinking, language, processing, emotions, sensation, memory, and more. Complications From TBIs are often permanent.
  • Spinal cord injuries. Perhaps the most common type of injury is a spinal cord injury. A spinal cord injury can cause permanent partial or complete paralysis from the site of the injury downwards. 
  • Soft tissue injuries. The muscles, ligaments, and tendons of the body are known as soft tissues. During a car accident, soft tissues can be pulled, twisted, and torn most of the time, leading to pain and temporary disabling. The most common type of soft tissue injury in a car accident is whiplash. 
  • Internal injuries. A car accident can severely damage internal organs. Internal injuries can lead to bleeding, organ failure, and, in severe cases, death.
  • Bone fractures. Bone fractures usually heal completely with time and medical treatment but can be extremely painful and cause long-term complications in some situations.
  • Scarring and disfigurement. Facial injuries, lacerations, and other injuries can sometimes be permanently disfiguring or disabling.
  • Psychological injuries. Not all injuries are physical. In addition to the physical damages that a person involved in a car accident may suffer, it’s also very possible for a car accident victim to develop psychological injuries, including post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, and depression.
