Common Car Accident Injuries

A traffic collision or car accident is a traumatic event that can occur when one vehicle crashes into another. These collisions are often caused by the driver being distracted, speeding too fast for conditions on roadways, or driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol. Traffic accidents happen frequently in urban areas where there are high volumes of cars traveling at breakneck speeds to avoid getting stuck in bad gridlock traffic situations.

A car accident is a tragedy for the victims and their families. It brings up feelings of anger, sadness, and fear in those who are close to them or have been through it themselves. Traffic accidents happen every day because people are not paying attention on the roadways; they're texting while driving instead of concentrating on where they need to go safely without getting into an incident with other cars around them that could result in severe injury or death.

The results of car accidents have dire consequences on a person's life. The injuries sustained can be physical or mental and they may lead to medical complications such as spinal cord injury, brain damage, paralysis and amputation among others. Furthermore there are the financial implications that follow an accident which include paying for hospital bills, rehabilitation costs and other expenses related to one's pain or suffering caused by another party due in part from said collision with them while driving their own vehicle without permission (i.e., uninsured drivers). In this article, I have presented common car accident injuries with few details on how treat and deal with it on spot or when to call an immediate help. 

Road Rash and Bruises all over the body

These are sustained by the impact and friction and even throwing off one's self during the accident as cars tend to be dragged and skid. Bruises are gained from the bad impact of your body to hard objects inside the car or even the road. Soft tissues are also damaged and are lingering type of injury. 

Lacerations on limbs

As a car in usual accident, glasses and debris are scattered and thrown around. It is highly possible to sustain injuries from these as they are inevitable, they are present inside and outside the car and skins are very sensitive to sharp presence as well. Joints are highly susceptible as they are used to escape or fend off these debris and they are deemed to be the common spot for injuries. 

Skeletal and Muscular damages

In some occassions, compression between hard and heavy objects in a car accidents happens so, it causes intense pain during and even after recuperation as it deals muscular damages (bruises and local bleeding) and in worst cases -- skeletal damages such as mild fractures to severed limb (requires limb amputation).

Burns 

When a vehicle crashes, the passenger can be exposed to fire and hot fluids. These burns are often severe enough that surgery is required for treatment of dead skin cells in order to prevent infection from setting in.

Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)

Head injuries are a leading cause of TBI, which occurs when the brain is damaged by blows to or piercing from the head. Each year, 50,000 people die and 80-90 thousand suffer long term disability due to this injury alone. Related to brain injuries are neck injuries spinal traumas that cause long term disabilities as TBI does.

Neck Injuries and Whiplash

The word whiplash is most commonly used to describe the neck injury that occurs when your head hits something and quickly goes back in the opposite direction. This can happen from a car accident, sports accidents, physical abuse or even just falls. Whiplashes are often caused by rear-end collisions but they may also result from any type of trauma such as being hit on the football field with a stick during play time or getting punched for example.

Spinal Injuries

Given that spines are delicate and sensible for most damages, back injuries are a common result of car accidents are deadly. This means that even if you feel fine after an accident it's possible for your injury to happen later on down the road when you're least prepared. Back pain can make things difficult at work or with family obligations, especially in more severe cases where surgery may be needed. Always take precautions like wearing seat belts so as not to put yourself at risk.

What to do when involved in a car crash as a victim?

When involved in a car crash as the victim, it is important to keep your head level. This will help avoid neck and back injuries that can occur if not careful. You should also try to get out of any smoke or fire surrounding you at all costs because this could mean toxic fumes are present which may lead to respiratory issues such as wheezing, coughing up blood due to lung damage from inhaling these harmful substances over time.

When faced with being on either side of an accident be sure stay calm but prepared for what might happen next by following some simple steps before getting away safely: when approached by first responders immediately say whether they're okay so those tending them know they have been stabilized; call 911 (or another emergency number) for immediate help and first aid treatment.

Based on the fault of individual parties, most cases are compensated. In some unfortunate circumstances where there is no fault at all or a party cannot be identified due to lack of evidence following an accident, often times only one side will compensate for damages as opposed to both sides being forced into paying from their own pockets.

Fault-based compensation standards simply mean that in majority of injury and death cases that take place within society today, each case centers around how much harm was dealt out by individuals involved with said incident instead if it was accidental or intentional - typically speaking this means victims should receive more money than those who inflicted injuries upon them since they experienced physical pain while the others were just causing trouble.
