Since cars commonly weigh in excess of 2,000 lbs. and travel at speeds over 60 mph, it’s no wonder that car accidents can cause irreparable damage to the body and mind. Many car accidents can severely affect the victim’s quality of life. Here are a few of the most common car accident injuries to look out for.
- Back Injuries- Your spinal column runs down your back and protects your spinal cord. As you may be aware, your spinal cord is responsible for all movement and feeling below your neck. With this in mind, the jarring shock of a car accident is often enough to damage your spine and spinal cord, causing excruciating pain or paralysis. However, a back injury isn’t always apparent immediately after an accident; it could take several days before you feel any pain. Please remember that the Law Offices of Juan J. Dominguez can assist you by arranging for major medical care with leading doctors in Southern California, once you retain the law firm and your case is qualified.
- Head and Neck Injuries- Airbags have saved many lives, but sometimes the circumstances of a particular crash prevent them from deploying effectively. Under these circumstances disastrous head injuries can occur. An injury to the head is especially serious because it can easily cause memory loss, brain damage, or even death. Neck injuries caused by sudden backward and forward motion (whiplash) can also bring about disastrous effects, such as paralysis or death.
- Internal Injuries- Car accidents often deal blunt blows to the body, causing internal injuries that aren’t readily apparent. Fractured ribs cause an enormous amount of pain, and have been known to puncture internal organs. Internal injuries can be extremely serious and often require lengthy hospital stays for treatment. Though an internal injury can deal a serious blow to your finances and lifestyle, you may be eligible for compensation. Feel free to contact the Law offices of Juan J. Dominguez.
