Motor vehicle accident injuries can affect the entire body

After a minor motor vehicle accident, a victim may feel stiff, sore and tired. The stress of experiencing an event like a car crash can affect them both physically and mentally. While some people only need a few days to recover from their car accident injuries, others may require more time and more treatment.

Motor vehicle accident injuries can be extensive and diverse. For example, a serious collision could affect practically every part of a victim's body. Starting at the top, some accident victims suffer concussions and other brain injuries when their heads hit surfaces inside and outside their cars.

Neck injuries like whiplash are also common when vehicles are involved in rear-end crashes. Victims of car crashes can suffer back injuries, muscle strains, broken bones, and in severe cases, organ and tissue damage. Bruises, cuts and burns can also result from collisions between motor vehicles. While some car accident victims may suffer mild, easily recoverable injuries, others may lose the capacity to use their bodies as they did before their crashes and may require great lengths of time to heal.

When these injuries are the result of another driver's negligence, the injured may recover compensation for their damages through a personal injury lawsuit. Damages can include purely economic losses like medical bills and lost income, as well as noneconomic losses such as pain and suffering.

The costs of an injury can add up quickly, and can affect a person's life in all kinds of ways. After a motor vehicle accident, a victim should seek medical support for their needs and document any injuries or losses they have suffered.
