Common Injuries After Car Accident

5 Common Auto Accident Injuries

Seatbelts and airbags were designed to keep us as safe as possible from life-threatening injuries and death. However, many hidden injuries in an accident are a result of these life-saving devices. Pain, stiffness, and bruising around the neck, chest, and pelvis from seatbelts, and damage to the head, neck, and arms from airbags are typical. Here is our list of the 5 most common car crash injuries:

  • Whiplash
  • Bruised Or Dislocated Ribs
  • Herniated Disc
  • Ligament Damage
  • Pinched Nerves

Delayed Symptoms, Delayed Treatment

One of the worst things about any collision is delayed accident injuries. Sometimes your symptoms don’t arrive for many hours, or even a few days after the accident. This delay in awareness, unfortunately, means a delay in treatment. Stiffness and pain will increase the longer the injuries go untreated. When things get out of alignment or soft tissues get damaged, the problems will only become compounded causing you to suffer more.
