Read on as we talk about car crash common injuries:

Back injuries

A common injury following a car crash is damage to someone’s back. This can be as serious as a spinal cord injury to the less serious but still painful herniated disk.

Head injuries

Head injuries can be very serious – especially in a high-speed crash. A head injury can vary from a traumatic brain injury to a mild concussion and can have short-term or long-term ramifications.

Neck injuries

Whiplash is probably the best-known neck injury following a car crash and can cause painful muscle and ligament damage.

Other injuries

In addition to injuries to the head, neck, and back, car crashes can cause broken bones, bruised ribs and other injuries to soft tissues. There can also be internal organ damage and even stress or emotional problems like post-traumatic stress disorder.
