Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

Car accidents often leave their victims with severe, debilitating, and even life-threatening injuries. Crash victims commonly sustain injuries to their hands, arms, feet, or legs. Injuries to extremities often include torn ligaments such as the ACL, fractured or broken bones, and even bisection and amputation.  

Victims who have pre-existing cardiac issues can easily slip into cardiac arrest. Punctured or collapsed lungs, broken ribs, internal bleeding, and internal organ damage, are also common scenarios that often follow serious vehicle accidents.

Whiplash is the most frequently occurring type of car accident injury. It is caused by the sharp and sudden movement of the head or neck causing damage to the ligaments and muscles. Whiplash injuries vary from fairly inconsequential to extremely severe. In some cases, crash victims can even undergo vocal cord paralysis after an accident. 

Back injuries are another common outcome of auto accidents and may lead to herniated discs, paralysis, or nerve damage. Victims can also experience permanent numbness, tingling, or pain in their legs or arms.
