Serious auto injury
Being an injured in an accident can range from simple scrapes, and bruises, to life threatening trauma. Unfortunately, there are injuries so serious that recovery can take months or years. In such cases, the victim can spend most of their recovery living with acute pain and/or debilitating loss of function. Some patients are actually fortunate that their only health problems are broken bones or superficial wounds. Here we will discuss car accident injuries that require wide-ranging health care and recuperation. These types of cases carry a tremendous cost, and a personal injury attorney can make sure that you are fairly compensated for your damages.
The most common auto injury
Whiplash is one of the most common injuries that victims receive when they are involved in a motor vehicle accident. Whiplash is a common term for injury to the soft tissues or bones in the neck. The symptoms that are most commonly associated with whiplash are neck pain, limited movement in the neck, headache, and dizziness. Whip lash symptoms are often accompanied with back pain. In serious cases, people who deal with whiplash may also experience memory loss, the inability to concentrate, fatigue, or depression. Treatment for whiplash can mean significant physical therapy, pain medications, and anti-depressants.
Traumatic brain injury happens when a person suffers a significant blow or impact to the head. This type of injury is very traumatizing because of its disruption of the normal function of the brain. Like whiplash, traumatic brain injuries can range from mild to severe. The most serious types of traumatic brain injuries can lead to health problems that include loss of memory and normal function.
Post-traumatic stress disorder
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a serious condition that affects millions of people who have been injured in an accident. Of course, it is most commonly associated with soldiers who have experienced trauma in the course of war. Beyond the pain and injury of a car crash, the psychological and emotional damage that comes with PTSD is significant. Most people who experience a traumatic event, eventually must receive some sort of clinical attention to deal with their inability to live a normal life.
