What are some common car accident injuries?
There many different types of injuries that can occur in car accidents. The severity and type of injury will depend on the type of car wreck you were involved in. The speed at which the vehicles were traveling, and the size and weight of the vehicles will also have a bearing on the level of injury. Another factor that can determine the level of injury is whether a vehicle occupant is wearing a seat belt. The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that the national seat belt use rate is 90.1% in the U.S., which leaves nearly 27.5 million people who choose not to buckle their seat belts. Examples of common injuries from car wrecks include:
- Broken bones
- Back and neck injuries
- Traumatic brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Internal organ damage
- Facial fractures
- Limb loss
