Automobile accidents happen every day and everywhere.

Many of these accidents are caused by negligent drivers. Car accident victims who were injured by negligent drivers may be entitled to compensation for their medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. If you have been injured in a car accident, don’t hesitate to seek legal representation from an experienced personal injury attorney.

Common Car Crash Injuries
People can be injured in any type of car accident. Some of the most common car accident injuries include:
Soft Tissue Injuries
There are many different types of soft tissue injuries. Any damage to muscles, ligaments, and tendons is often referred to as a soft tissue injury. One of the most common is whiplash. Whiplash occurs when muscles and ligaments in the neck are stretched too far due to a sudden impact. It affects the neck, head, upper back, and causes severe pain.
Back injuries can range in severity from minor soft tissue injuries to severe spinal cord damage. Common back injuries include fractured vertebrae, herniated discs, bulging discs, and spondylolisthesis.
Drivers and passengers can sustain chest injuries such as bruises and broken ribs when they collide with the steering wheel or dashboard during a crash. While seat belts can save your life, they are also known to cause chest injuries when the impact of the collision is great enough.
Drivers and passengers are susceptible to head and face injuries during a collision. It’s probable that your head could hit the steering wheel, dashboard, a window, and even an air bag. As a result, common head injuries include concussions, traumatic brain injuries, skull fractures, and facial lacerations.
