Car accidents are a common occurrence in the United States. From fender benders to totaled cars, there are many contributing factors that lead to car accidents and injuries. Some injuries may be severe enough to warrant immediate medical attention, while others are more common.
Car accident injuries can be grouped into penetrating injuries and impact injuries. Penetrating injuries are sustained due to broken glass, as well as other objects that can penetrate a person’s body. Impact injuries involve blunt force trauma from a person’s body hitting something inside of the car. The following are various types of injuries one can sustain in a car accident:
After a car accident, you should seek medical treatment. Because injuries are not always present immediately, you may have sustained an injury without realizing it. Seeking medical treatment also helps you document your injuries to build your case against the person responsible for the accident.
