REAR-END CAR ACCIDENT INJURIES
Rear-end car accidents often take the person being hit from behind off guard. Some fortunate victims may not incur any injuries and some may receive some serious ones. Some of the common injuries include:
- Soft Tissue - One of the most common auto accident injuries, flexion/extension injuries, is caused by sudden jolting of the body damaging the soft tissues of the spine. The body cannot handle extreme jolts when someone hits your car from behind. Snapping your head forward unexpectedly can place pressure on your spine. You may experience pain between the shoulder blades or neck, headaches, dizziness, and vision impairment. The adrenaline from the shock of the accident causes you to experience these symptoms much later.
- Herniation - Herniation is when the outer fiber surrounding a disk becomes torn because of trauma. This injury may occur in the cervical or thoracic region but usually in the lumbar region. A patient usually experiences back pain, numbness, tingling, or paralysis. This injury could involve some misplaced pain and the individual may feel it in their legs or knees.
- Brain Injury - Brain injuries is a less common type of injury from a rear-end accident. Neck and back injuries are more common. If a brain injuries occurs then it is likely the person was not wearing a seat belt. Even though it is not common, if a brain injury does occur, it is usually serious. The cerebral swelling can put pressure on the skull which could cause brain damage, strokes, seizures, and possible death.
- Broken Bones - A broken leg or arm does not usually seem severe but bone breakage can be and may lead to other complication such as to organs or permanent limb deformity.
- A Concussion – Any type of head trauma will demand medical attention to make sure there are no symptoms of concussion. These symptoms may not be apparent immediately after an accidents so family members should look out for symptoms such as headaches, blurred vision, dizziness, inability to concentrate, and sensitivity to sounds and light.
ROLLOVER CAR ACCIDENT INJURIES
Depending on which type of vehicle rolls over in an accident increases the chances of the types of injuries a person may incur. Unsafe or negligent driving may lead to one or both of the vehicles rolling over, as well as a drunk driver, or unsafe road conditions. A person not wearing a seat belt in a rollover accident will be injured the most. Some injuries may include the neck, back, spine, soft tissue damage, bone fractures, or brain injury.
T-BONE ACCIDENT INJURIES
T-bone collisions are the most dangerous roadway accident. It is when the side of a car is impacted by the front or rear of another car. How severe the accident is depends on the size of the vehicles. These accidents often occur in intersections when cars are changing lanes or running red lights. This type of side impact is caused by speeding, running red lights, negligent and distracted driving, or drunk drivers. Some common injures include traumatic brain injury, fractured pelvis, broken bones, facial lacerations, eye injuries, hemorrhaging of the brain, spinal cord damage, whiplash, burn injuries or death. More often unfortunately, T-bone accidents cause lifelong injuries.
RED LIGHT CROSSING ACCIDENT INJURIES
Busy intersections are prone to more traffic collision such as truck accidents, car accidents, motorcycle accidents and pedestrian crossing accidents. Some common causes for injuries when accidents occur at a red light include negligent driving, speeding through an intersection, distracted driving, failure to yield at a stop sign, or drunk driving. Due to some of this careless behavior, the types of injuries an individual may receive because of this type of accident include neck injuries, facial lacerations, broken bones, facial fractures, eye injuries, amputations, psychological anguish, soft tissue injuries, and death. It may be difficult to prove a red light accident lawsuit but seeking the help of the attorney will increase your chances. You should first take care of yourself and then contact an attorney to get you the highest compensation you deserve.
