Common Injuries Sustained in Motor Vehicle Accidents:
One of the most common injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident is whiplash. Whiplash occurs when the head is suddenly jolted forward or to the side, which puts a strain on the muscles and ligaments of the neck. Whiplash can happen in both low speed and high speed motor vehicle accidents. More serious forms of whiplash include complete tearing of the ligaments in the neck and possible disk herniation.
The impact from a motor vehicle accident causes an intense torquing motion on the body, which can often result in back injuries. Lower back injuries are the most common type of back injury individuals suffer from when in a motor vehicle accident. More serious back injuries can include dislocation and/or fractures of the spine. Back injuries can be extremely painful and often remain chronic, needing years of therapy.
Brain injuries resulting from motor vehicle accidents can seriously debilitate one’s life. Even a mild concussion can seriously effect one’s cognitive functioning and have a huge impact on the individual’s life.Traumatic brain injuries often require therapy to improve the individual’s condition and help them resume activities of daily living.
Depending on the nature of the motor vehicle accident, the impact of the accident can result in one or more broken bones. Broken bones often require immobilization, which prevent your muscles and ligaments from working. This leads that area to atrophy and become weak, which most of the time requires therapy to rehabilitate people back to their original functioning.
