One of the most frequent injuries resulting from a motor vehicle accident is whiplash. Whiplash happens with forceful, rapid back-and-forth movement of the neck, like the cracking of a whip causing soft tissue injuries to the neck and upper back. Whiplash can occur whether you are involved in a low-speed or high-speed motor vehicle accident.
The impact from a motor vehicle accident can also lead to back injuries. The most common type of back injuries that people suffer from when in a motor vehicle accident are soft tissue injuries. These types of back injuries can be very painful and can become chronic, requiring years of therapy if not dealt with properly.
Head and Brain injuries:
Head injuries as a result of motor vehicle accidents can range from mild concussions to traumatic brain injuries. They affect one’s cognitive functioning and have a tremendous impact on a person’s life.
