Common Types of Injuries

The speed, weight, and momentum in auto accidents can cause a wide variety of injuries affecting almost every part of the body. The most common types of auto accident injuries include:

  • Back and Neck InjuriesThe back and neck are vulnerable to injury during an auto accident, which can lead to bulging or herniated discs, pulled muscles and ligaments, and whiplash.
  • Spinal Cord InjuriesRollover accidents and head-on collisions often can cause spinal cord injuries in auto accident victims. Some victims may experience partial or complete paralysis as a result of these injuries.
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) Seatbelts and airbags help reduce the risk of TBIs, but sometimes car accidents involve so much force that the brain impacts the inside of the skull—causing severe damage, swelling, and destruction of brain tissue.

At John Bales Attorneys, we know that not all auto accident injuries are obvious right away. In fact, some injuries may be internal and could go unnoticed for days or weeks after the accident, only to cause extreme pain and disability weeks later. That is why it is so important to seek medical attention after your accident, even if you do not think you were seriously injured.
