What are 4 common crash injuries?

When you're in a traffic accident, there are a few kinds of injuries you should watch out for. They are more common than others because of the way the car is designed and the physics involved in a typical crash.

Some common injuries include whiplash, back injuries, brain trauma and broken bones. Here's a little more about each injury and why it happens.

1. Whiplash

Whiplash happens when the head whips forward or to the side rapidly. This stretches and tears tendons and ligaments that support the head. This leads to stiffness and pain, headaches and other symptoms.

2. Back injuries

Due to the force of acceleration and deceleration, the possibility of a back injury caused by the rapid stop of a vehicle is high. Although your seat belt protects you, your entire body still feels the force of the sudden stop. Additionally, the impact of another vehicle may result in a direct blow.

3. Brain trauma

Caused by the brain impacting the skull, brain trauma is common due to the sudden blows and force in a car crash.

4. Broken bones

Broken bones might occur from gripping the steering wheel, being hit by the air bag, striking the window or because of a direct blow. They are very common in crashes due to the extreme force many crashes have.

These are just a few of the injuries victims of car crashes may face. Remember, you need to seek medical help immediately following a crash. The right care will help you begin the road to recovery faster than if you wait.
