Types of Injuries in a Car Accident

Every day about 7,000 people are hurt in car accidents. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than three million people are injured each year in vehicle accidents across the country. The different injuries resulting from a car accident can be as varied as the individual circumstances of each collision, but there are some types of injuries that are more common than others.

Some car accident injuries may resolve within a matter of days without any medical treatment at all. More serious injuries might become permanent and result in some level of physical disability, including:

Head and brain trauma — Head injuries include hitting the windshield, windows, vehicle roof, steering wheel, objects that are thrown loose or other people.

Facial trauma — Impacting the steering wheel, airbag, or a loose object can injure facial skin, teeth and bones.

Neck trauma — Rear or side impacts cause your neck to snap quickly. Injuries can range from mild neck strain, to disc injury in the spine.

Back and spinal cord trauma — Among the most traumatic, during a collision the small discs that make up your spine can be twisted or pushed out of alignment or fractured.

Internal trauma — Wearing a seat belt incorrectly can cause internal injuries as your entire body weight is thrown against the belt. Common injuries include muscles in the torso, heart, lungs, liver, spleen, kidneys or bowels.

Lower extremity trauma — Common injuries include bone breaks, leg muscle damage, knee and foot sprains, as well as muscle and tendon strain.
