Common Injuries in Car Accidents

After an auto accident, your focus should be on getting healthy. Car accidents can result in a wide range of medical problems. Common injuries include:   

  • Whiplash
  • Soft tissue injuries 
  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Head injuries and traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Spine and neck injuries
  • Abrasions and lacerations

Here are some of the most frequent causes of car accidents:

  • Distracted Driving: Perhaps the leading cause of car accidents today, distracted driving occurs when a driver's attention is diverted away from the road. This can include texting, talking on the phone, eating, adjusting the radio, or interacting with passengers.
  • Speeding: Driving above the posted speed limit or too fast for road conditions reduces a driver's ability to react to hazards and increases the severity of accidents. Speeding contributes to a significant number of accidents and fatalities every year.
  • Driving Under the Influence (DUI): Operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs impairs judgment, coordination, and reaction time, significantly increasing the risk of accidents. DUI is a leading cause of fatal car crashes.
  • Reckless Driving: Reckless driving behaviors such as tailgating, weaving in and out of traffic, failure to yield, and disregarding traffic signals or signs can lead to accidents. These behaviors demonstrate a lack of regard for the safety of others on the road.
  • Weather Conditions: Adverse weather conditions such as rain, snow, ice, fog, and high winds can reduce visibility and create slick or hazardous road surfaces, increasing the likelihood of accidents.
  • Fatigue: Driving while tired or drowsy can impair judgment and reaction time, similar to driving under the influence. Fatigue can be caused by lack of sleep, long hours of driving, or untreated sleep disorders.
  • Poor Road Conditions: Potholes, uneven pavement, debris on the road, and inadequate signage or lighting can contribute to accidents. Municipalities and road authorities are responsible for maintaining safe road conditions, but drivers must also exercise caution in navigating these hazards.
  • Inexperienced Drivers: Novice drivers, including teenagers and those who have recently obtained their driver's licenses, may lack the skills and experience to handle challenging driving situations, increasing their risk of accidents.
  • Vehicle Defects: Malfunctions or defects in a vehicle's design or components, such as faulty brakes, tire blowouts, or steering failures, can lead to accidents. Manufacturers may be held liable for accidents caused by defective vehicles or parts.
  • Aggressive Driving: Aggressive driving behaviors such as tailgating, speeding, sudden lane changes, and road rage can escalate into accidents. Aggressive drivers put themselves and others at risk of harm.

Regardless of the extent of your injuries, our lawyers can pursue the financial compensation you need for medical care, continued treatments, lost earnings, and more.
