What injuries can victims suffer in motor vehicle accidents?

Motor vehicle accidents happen every day and, often, New Jersey residents suffer injuries as a result. These injuries can range from minor aches and pains to significant traumas and life-threatening harm. While this post offers readers no medical or legal advice, readers may find its contents informative on topics related to the types of injuries victims may suffer when they are involved in vehicle crashes.

From head to toe, car accident victims can suffer a range of injuries. When the force of motor vehicle accidents throws them forward in their seats, they may hit their heads on dashboards, steering wheels or other hard surfaces in the vehicle. These impacts can cause bruising, concussions, bleeding, and other head trauma.

Whiplash is a common car accident injury that results when the neck is jerked in opposite directions. Whiplash can contribute to back pain, which on its own is a common car accident injury. Broken bones, injured organs, as well as strains and sprains can all occur when the body is subjected to force and pressure during a collision of motor vehicles.

It is important that victims of motor vehicle accidents get medical help after their ordeals, even if it does not appear that they have sustained serious trauma. That is because not all injuries are readily apparent and victims may need to be evaluated for serious forms of physical damage. To learn more about one's rights and options after suffering injuries in a motor vehicle crash, readers are invited to contact their trusted New Jersey personal injury attorneys.
