Thousands of car accidents occur every year in Chicago, with many people injured or killed by motor vehicle drivers. If you have been injured in a car accident, protect your right to fair compensation by contacting an experienced personal injury attorney. Keep reading to learn more about common injuries sustained during auto accidents:
Neck injuries are some of the most common injuries resulting from auto accidents. When you get into a collision, the resulting impact can cause severe whiplash. In some cases, this causes nothing more than mild neck strain, but in more severe incidents, long term disc injuries and injuries like cervical radiculopathy can occur.
Head and Brain Injuries
Whether you have hit your head or simply suffered whiplash during a car accident, the impact of a car collision can greatly injure your head and brain. Especially troubling are injuries to the brain, as these often exhibit few outward signs. That’s why, regardless of whether you have physical cuts and bruises, it is always important to seek immediate medical attention after an accident.
Back injuries from car accidents are not only painful, but they can impair your ability to work. Common back injuries resulting from collisions include disc injuries, lumbar spine injuries, thoracic spine injury, and fractures. These symptoms can present themselves long after an accident, so be on the lookout for symptoms of back pain in the weeks after your collision.
Less understood than physical injuries but just as harmful, the emotional pain wrought by a car accident can be severe. Post-traumatic stress disorders and other emotional illnesses can greatly impair your ability to function normally, and could entitle you to personal injury compensation.
