Auto Accidents and Workers' Comp Q & A
What injuries can result from an auto accident?
Auto accidents can cause a variety of physical injuries to both drivers and passengers.
Head and brain injuries
Head and brain injuries caused by being hit or hitting an object violently are common in auto accidents. Symptoms can range from mild to severe. Even without visible cuts or bruises, the force of impact can cause bruising, bleeding, or swelling of the brain.
Facial injuries caused by the steering wheel, dashboard, a discharged airbag, or shattered glass are common. These injuries range in severity from minor scrapes to severe fractures, and even serious dental injuries to the mouth and jaw.
Neck-related injuries stemming from a car crash can vary from mild incidents, such as straining or whiplash, to more serious cases like disc injuries.
Spinal cord injuries
Impact from an auto accident can affect the nerve cells that carry signals along your spinal cord between your brain and the rest of your body. Spinal cord injuries often result in a loss of function or feeling.
If you’ve sustained an injury in an auto accident, it’s important to seek treatment right away.
