Common Injuries Suffered By Accident Victims In Traffic Collisions 

If you or a loved one suffered personal injury during a traffic collision it is important that you receive medical treatment so you can document specific injuries. Some of the most common injuries suffered by accident victims may not produce noticeable symptoms until months after the date of the injury. 

If you do not document your injuries by receiving medical treatment it can be more difficult for your attorney to prove damages later in your case. The following are some of the most common injuries suffered by accident victims in motor vehicle collisions. 

Whiplash And Neck Injuries 

Whiplash and neck injuries often occur during rear-end collisions. The driver striking an automobile does not have to travel at a high rate of speed to cause serious bodily injury to a driver and passengers. Many accident victims who suffer whiplash and neck injuries must take time off work to recover from their injuries. Serious neck injuries can cause temporary or permanent paralysis, extreme pain, and neurological damage. 

Whiplash encompasses many different types of neck injuries from herniated discs to ruptured ligaments. Many individual drivers and passengers may not be aware that they are suffering from a neck injury during the days and weeks after a motor vehicle collision. Therefore it is important for you or your loved one to seek medical treatment as soon as possible after an automobile accident. 

Sudden back and forth motion of the neck is the defining characteristic of whiplash. The sudden force of a rear-end collision is more likely to cause a driver or a passenger to suffer whiplash. 

Also, women may be more at risk from suffering from whiplash than men. All emergency personnel who believe a driver or passenger suffered whiplash should use head restraints after an automobile accident to reduce the risk of further injury. 

Whiplash symptoms develop most often during the first twenty-four hours after the subject incident. If you or a loved one suffered whiplash symptoms may or may not appear within twenty-four hours of the date of the injury. 

Back Injuries 

The back contains the spinal cord, the spinal column, discs, vertebrae, ligaments, and muscles. All of these components work together in the human body. When a human being suffers personal injury in an automobile accident the back is often injured. Any injury to a part of the back can cause severe pain, immobility, and paralysis. Individuals who suffer severe back injuries can require decades of medical treatment and rehabilitation. 

A lumbar injury is any injury to the lumbar region of the back. Severe sprains and strains in the lumbar region can cause extreme pain and immobility. Thoracic injuries affect the thoracic area of the human spine. This region is connected to the rib cage and the chest. Permanent nerve damage in this area can lead to temporary and permanent disability. 

Spinal cord injuries can cause temporary and permanent paralysis. Herniated disc injuries can cause intense pain and a numb sensation. Any driver or passenger who suffers injury in a motor vehicle collision may be at risk of these types of injuries. If you or a loved one suffered a back injury during a motor vehicle collision it is important for you to seek medical treatment as soon as possible.
