3 common injuries associated with road traffic accidents 

Most of the time, commuters across Virginia will utilize the roads without any issues. Unfortunately, there are occasions where people may be caught up in road traffic accidents.

Occasionally, those involved in a collision will be subjected to only minor injuries, meaning a fast recovery period. In more serious cases, those involved in an accident can be more severely injured. Recognizing the potential injuries caused by car accidents could help with road safety awareness. Outlined below are some of the more severe injuries associated with vehicular collisions. 

Head injuries

Although many head injuries only have short-term effects, any type of head injury should be treated as an emergency that requires medical attention. In minor cases, symptoms may only last for a day or two. In other instances, recovering from a head injury may take an extended period of time. In more severe cases, a head injury can be catastrophic and could result in traumatic brain injuries. Traumatic brain injuries have the potential to alter a person’s life in a permanent manner. 

Spinal cord injuries

Another serious form of injury that can result from crashes is damage to the spinal cord. In almost every case, spinal cord injuries are left threatening and those affected need both urgent and extended medical attention. At times, victims may make a full recovery. Unfortunately, in many cases, damage may be permanent which leaves a lifelong requirement of medical care. 

Broken bones and fractures

Various bones may be broken or fractured during a road traffic accident. The severity of the pain and recovery period can depend on which bone has been broken, as well as any other nerve or soft tissue damage. 

It is important to recognize some of the more common injuries associated with collisions on the roads. Injuries sustained during this type of incident can greatly impact your well-being, but there are legal options open to you that might ease your pain and suffering.
