If you have been injured in an automobile accident, Jay Trucks & Associates can help make sure you get the care and compensation you deserve. As anyone who has been in a car accident knows, no two incidents are alike, and injuries vary in severity. The following list of common injuries can provide an informative guide for all drivers:
Whiplash is a non-medical term used to describe a neck injury that can occur when cars collide. Much like a sprain, whiplash is a soft tissue injury that affects your body’s muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Symptoms include pain, tenderness, and swelling. Serious whiplash injuries can result in ongoing medical treatment and lost wages from missed work days.
Dizziness and Vertigo
Immediately after a car accident, you may feel dizzy and experience ringing in your ears, or tinnitus. Dizziness can result in fainting, confusion, extended fatigue, or difficulty walking. If you feel dizzy at any point after a car accident, it may indicate a serious injury or organ trauma.
Lower Back Pain
Car accident back pain can last for a lifetime. When two cars collide, the tremendous force can tear apart soft tissue and shatter bone. Automobile accidents can cause everything from life-altering spinal injuries to chronic back aches. That’s why it’s so important that you see a medical professional after your accident, no matter how minor it may seem.
Seatbelt injury is another common effect of car accidents. Although wearing a seatbelt will save your life, it may also cause your body to twist or snap back after a car collision, resulting in misaligned ribs or pinched nerves. That said, failing to wear a seatbelt can lead to much more serious injuries.
Even a fender-bender can cause painful injuries or headaches. Sometimes, victims don’t even realize they have been hurt until much later.
