Experiencing a car crash injury can be traumatic and extremely painful. From whiplash to seat belt burns, there are a lot of possible injuries from a car accident. 

A new study has found that nearly 1/3 of people involved in a car crash will continue to complain of low back pain one year after the injury. 

Many car accident victims experience low back injuries, neck injuries, and hip injuries. Read more below about the most common injuries sustained from a car wreck.

Whiplash

Whiplash is the most common name for muscle, ligament or tendon injuries that occur in the head or neck region. Whiplash occurs when the body is thrown forward or backwards suddenly and faster than you would move on your own. 

Scrapes and Cuts 

From glass shattering to objects being thrown throughout the vehicle, many car accident victims experience painful bleeding from cuts. 

Soreness, Internal Bleeding and Deep Bruises 

Many car accident victims experience incredible soreness the day after the accident because their body feels like it has been tossed around like a rag doll. In addition, there are often serious threats from deep bruising. Although a person might walk away from a car accident appearing “unharmed,” there are many examples of people who suffered internal bleeding and deep bruising to their invisible injuries.

It is crucial that you or anyone who has been in a serious car accident seek medical help for examination immediately following an accident. Don’t wait to get help even if you feel ok! 

Head Injuries

Similar to whiplash, head injuries are very common in accidents. From the force of the airbag to the impact of the head to a window, many people sustain concussions and other traumatic brain injuries in accidents. Loss of sleep, fogginess, and dizziness can be long-term problems of a brain injury left untreated. 

Broken Bones

Fingers, hands, wrists, ribs, legs, arms, and more can be easily broken during an accident. Many people brace upon impact and can withstand a lot of trauma on their bones. In addition, many people may experience deep soreness only to discover that it is really a fracture. 

Back Injuries and Herniated Discs

Just like you can break a bone in a car accident, the back can also suffer from a vertebrae that has been pushed out of place. The force of a sudden stop can cause your back and neck to experience extreme pressures that might cause a serious back injury.
