Automotive accidents can cause a great deal of damage to your body in just seconds. Even if both vehicles involved are moving at a low speed, the massive amount of force transferred in the accident can do incredible harm to the bodies contained inside.
Injuries from an auto accident vary but can include:
Head and brain: Head and brain injuries from impact range from a mild concussion to long-lasting traumatic brain A brain injury may occur even without any signs of trauma visible, from the brain being jostled inside the skull due to the force of impact.
Neck: An injury to the neck may not show up right away after an accident. These types of injuries range from mild, such as whiplash and neck strain, to more severe, including damage to the discs. Whiplash is very commonly associated with car accidents.
Back: Back injuries most often occur in the lower section. These injuries include vertebrae fractures, herniated discs, strains and sprains. As with neck damage, injuries to the back may not be apparent immediately.
