Types Of Car Accident Injuries – Woodbridge New Haven Injury Attorney

Serious car accident injuries
can cause financial instability for injury victims and their families
simply due to the medical costs and outpatient treatment costs that most
victims require in order to get healthy again. When lost wages,
medication costs and rental car costs are included, even a small injury
can be devastating for those that have been injured.

If you or a loved one has suffered an injury in a Connecticut auto accident due to the negligence of another, it is important to seek legal counsel with an experienced car accident damages attorney as you may be able to recover losses associated with the crash.

Common Auto Accident Injuries

Some injuries occur with a higher frequency than other types of injuries in Connecticut car accidents. Common car crash physical damages include
broken bones, paralysis or permanent disability, brain injuries, head
and neck injuries, back and spinal cord injuries, lacerations, burns and
scarring, and wrongful death.

Broken Bones

Car
wrecks often result in some type of bone fracture or broken bone. 
Broken bones caused by a collision are generally very severe due to the
amount of force involved in an accident.

Paralysis or Permanent Disability

There
are three types of paralysis or permanent disability injuries;
paraplegia, paraparesis and quadriplegia.  Paraplegia refers to
paralysis below the waist. Paraparesis is similar to paraplegia in that
it is caused by damage to the spinal; however, since the spinal cord is
not completely severed in this type of injury, only partial loss of
range of sensory ability and motion is experienced. Quadriplegia is
characterized by the total paralysis of the victim’s arms, legs and
torso.

Brain Injuries

Even
when there are no outward signs of physical trauma, an accident victim
may still be suffering from a brain injury. Internal bruising, bleeding
and swelling, skull fractures and nerve damages are typical causes of a
brain wound in auto accident victims.  Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) can cause temporary or permanent impairment of the brain’s function.

Head and Neck Injuries

Neck and head injuries, including whiplash,
are the most common types of auto accident injuries.  Head injuries can
range from a mild concussion to a serious or traumatic brain injury
(TBI).

Back and Spinal Cord Damage

Back
and spinal damage can vary from mild to severe, including sprains,
fractures, injured spinal discs, lumbar spine injuries, lumbar
radiculopathy and thoracic spine injuries.  Symptoms of serious back
injuries can sometimes take a long time to become apparent, so it’s
important to see a physician after a Connecticut auto accident.

Lacerations, Burns and Scarring

The
treatment of serious burns or lacerations usually involves a lengthy
and expensive process.  Lacerations and burns can result in debilitating
pain in injury victims, and oftentimes, these types of injuries cause
serious scarring.

Wrongful Death

When
a car accident claims the life of a passenger involved, the dependents
of the deceased may be entitled to receive compensation.  Family members
of the victim may be able to recover damages such as medical bills,
funeral bills and loss of anticipated earnings.
