Car accidents can happen at any time and can lead to serious and life-threatening injuries in some cases. When a car is struck by another car, a truck, a motorcycle or even a non-motorized object, the damage can extend beyond the vehicle, and have a lasting effect on the driver and passengers.

Injuries suffered in an automobile accident can be varied and include:

  • Neck injuries – including pain due to “whiplash” or intervertebral disc bulging or herniations as well as fractures.
  • Head injuries – including concussions and brain injuries or skull fractures.
  • Back injuries – pain or swelling to the soft tissue of the back, as well as fractures of vertebrae and injuries to the spinal column requiring surgery.
  • Fractures – Bone fractures can occur in the limbs, hands, feet, ankles, clavicles, ribs or in any part of the body subjected to the pressure or sudden “jolt” of an accident.
  • Organs – there is always a possibility of internal bleeding and organ damage when the body is subjected to stressed caused by an automobile accident.
  • Joint injuries – Can include torn ACL, torn MCL, torn meniscus, torn ligaments in the shoulder.  Often times the injuries result in surgeries.

It is very important that you seek medical attention immediately if you experience any form of pain or discomfort after being involved in an automobile accident. These injuries can require extensive medical treatment to repair, including surgeries, metal screws or implants, medication and long-term physical therapy.
