Motor vehicle crashes commonly leave their victims with severe, debilitating, and even potentially fatal injuries.
The extreme force of impact can cause whiplash, concussions, and other, far more serious damage, such as traumatic brain injury. Victims might be subjected to a decrease in their cognitive abilities, disorientation, h loss of or damage to their vision, and loss of or damage to their hearing.
A collapsed or punctured lung, severe internal bleeding, cracked ribs, and damage to internal organs are a few other serious injuries that can sometimes be caused by vehicle collisions.
Back injuries are a relatively normal byproduct of auto collisions and can vary from spinal cord damage and nerve damage to paralysis and death. Crash victims might also encounter numbness, tingling, or pain in their hands, legs, feet, and arms for the remainder of their lives.
