Auto Accident Injuries Q & A

What are common auto accident injuries?

Every year nearly 3 million people are injured in auto accidents. The types and extent of injuries vary depending on the severity of the accident. But even a minor fender bender can lead to an injury that affects your health and well-being.

Some of the most common injuries caused by auto accidents include:

  • Whiplash
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Muscle sprain or strain
  • Broken bones
  • Internal injuries

You may experience whiplash from a rear-end accident that forces your head to thrust forward and back quickly, injuring the soft tissue in your neck.

When should I seek medical care for my auto accident injury?

You should seek medical care immediately following an auto accident, even if your pain is minimal. Your adrenaline may mask some of your symptoms, and it’s important to get checked out to rule out any serious injuries such as a broken bone.

What treatments can help me recover from my injuries?
