Different Types of Auto Accident Injuries

Based on the size, speed and types of motor vehicles involved in an accident, injuries can range from minor to deadly. Our firm is prepared to represent clients facing common car accident injuries, such as:

  • Head injuries: Whether these are mild traumatic brain injuries (MTBIs) or traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), the results can be devastating. Individuals can suffer from chronic headaches, blurred vision, personality changes and loss of memory.
  • Neck injuries: The jarring motion of a vehicle collision can result in serious injuries at the top of the spine. Whether it is a soft tissue injury such as whiplash or cervical sprain, or a fractured vertebra, these injuries can be difficult to heal.
  • Spinal cord injuries: The spinal cord, protected by the spinal column and muscles of the back, is the information conduit for the limbs and many internal organs. If the spinal cord is bent, pinched, torn or severed, an individual can suffer paralysis. Depending on the location of the injury, quadriplegia or paraplegia can result.
