Car accidents can happen to anyone, anywhere, and at any time. Unfortunately, they can also result in various injuries, some of which can be life-changing. At The Becker Law Firm, we understand the importance of educating our clients about the different types of injuries that can occur from a car accident.
1. Whiplash Injuries
Whiplash is one of the most common injuries resulting from a car accident. It is caused by a sudden, forceful movement of the neck, causing the muscles and ligaments to stretch and tear. Symptoms may include neck pain, stiffness, headaches, and dizziness.
2. Traumatic Brain Injuries
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs when the head is hit or jolted, causing damage to the brain. Symptoms may include headaches, dizziness, confusion, memory loss, and even seizures.
3. Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injuries can be devastating and life-changing. They occur when the spinal cord is damaged, resulting in loss of sensation, mobility, or even paralysis.
4. Broken Bones
Broken bones are common in car accidents, especially in high-speed collisions. They can range from minor fractures to severe breaks that require surgery.
5. Soft Tissue Injuries
Soft tissue injuries are injuries to the muscles, ligaments, and tendons. They can cause pain, swelling, and bruising.
What You Should Do
