Common Injuries after Accidents

Most Common Collision Injuries

Orthopedic Injuries – Sprains, strains, fractures, and broken bones make up over 50% of emergency room visits after crashes and falls. These painful injuries often require casting, splints, surgery, or physical therapy to heal properly over weeks or months.

Head and Back Trauma – Whiplash from vehicle crashes or high impact due to a trip and fall, accidents that injure the head and back can lead to concussions or serious head/brain injuries. Back, neck and spinal disc injuries also occur, causing long-lasting nerve pain and mobility restrictions.

Cuts, Bruises, Burns – Lacerations from debris or glass, dark bruises wearing seatbelts, and burns from airbags or materials at a slip/fall site make up some visible accident injuries. Though less severe, they still warrant medical care to avoid infections and promote proper healing.

Seeking Prompt Medical Evaluation

Getting checked by police/EMTs after an accident is advisable. Then, following up with your doctor is crucial after any significant injury. Describe all pains, aches, and symptoms thoroughly. There are tests available to assess nerve function, brain activity, bone alignment, tissue damage, and other unseen issues. Listen closely to all doctor recommendations on medication, treatment, aids like slings/braces, and lifestyle changes to promote recovery.

Recovery Timelines Vary by Injury

Some surface abrasions or mild strains heal fully in days or weeks with rest and care. More severe injuries like fractured vertebrae can take months of cautious restricted movement along with therapy before you regain strength and mobility. Discuss expectations specific to your injury with your physician. Having a sense of the road to healing empowers you to stay positive.

With compassionate medical care and support, most accident victims make full recoveries over time. Patience during the process can be challenging but necessary. If injuries persist long-term, discussing your legal options with an attorney becomes important as well.
