Almost everyone drives a car or in a car. Even in the most congested of cities, people use Lyft or Uber to get around as opposed to public transportation. We get it. There privacy in your vehicle. There are moments of peace in our vehicles. Some are so fanatic about their cars that they go to great lengths to keep the car cleaned and up to standard. So when someone hits you, they didn’t just hurt you, but they also hurt your privacy, your vehicle.

Living through a car accident can be traumatizing, especially if it causes catastrophic results. Here is a list of the most common injuries:

  • Whiplash: This injury is typical in a rear impact car accident. The injury usually results in a neck brace, visits to chiropractor, and massages.
  • Brain injuries: This is significantly serious and can be labeled as a catastrophic injury.  Depending on how the car hit you dictates where you hit your head. regardless, any head injury can lead to bleeding or bruising of the brain, which can lead to death or severe complications.
  • Back injuries: This can be labeled as a catastrophic injury alongside brain injury. Any kind of back injury is dangerous because it can affect your future ability. It can prevent you from doing physical labor. Surgeries are expensive and typically result in some kind of chronic pain.
  • Limb injuries: Breaking, fracturing, or spraining bones is not uncommon in car accidents. This can result in lost wages due to recovery time as well as chronic pain.
  • Psychological Injuries: Thankfully mental health is getting more recognition these days. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)  is very real for severe car accidents which result in psychotherapy sessions. Mental health is just as important as physical health.

Then there are the medical records surrounding the injury due to the incident. All this gathering of data takes a team of professionals to ensure that the information is up-to-date and accurate.
