Car accidents are often extremely violent events that involve tremendous physical forces. As a result, the people involved in car accidents often sustain extremely serious injuries. In many cases, these injuries can leave victims with hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical expenses and an inability to work for an extended period of time. In particularly serious cases, these injuries may affect a person’s ability to live independently or even care for oneself. Some of the more common serious injuries sustained car accidents include the following:
- Traumatic brain injuries – TBIs happen when a blow or jolt to a person’s head results in a disruption in normal brain function. While many TBIs can resolve with minimal medical intervention, others may require significant surgery and can leave victims with serious cognitive or physical issues.
- Spinal cord injuries – SCIs occur when physical trauma results in damage to the spinal cord, which is the bundle of nerve responsible for transmitting signals between the brain and the rest of the body. These injuries can be catastrophic and may result in complete paralysis below the site of the injury.
- Burns – Burns are among the most painful injuries that a person can sustain and often leave victims with significant scarring that can result in psychological or emotional issues.
- Amputations – The significant forces involved in car accidents can often result in the accidental amputation of a person’s limbs or other extremities. In addition, victims may sustain injuries serious enough to require the surgical amputation of the injured body part.
