Common Injuries From Car Accidents

Car Crashes in Chicago

Common injuries from car accidents

Car crashes are a significant source of serious injuries in Illinois and nationally.  According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, millions of people are injured in motor vehicle accidents each year.  Luckily, injury rates are steadily trending toward a decrease due to increased use of seat belts and safety innovations such as airbags.  Still, the numbers remain high.

The Chicago car crash lawyers at Phillips Law Offices have decades of experience helping people injured in car crashes recover compensation for their losses, including those suffering from debilitating injuries.

Common injuries from a car crash in Chicago

Common injuries from car crashes range from minor injuries to paralysis or even death.  Minor injuries typically include:

  • Bruises
  • Minor lacerations
  • Minor whiplash
  • Sore muscles

Even minor injuries require immediate medical attention.  Injuries such as a little soreness may in fact be symptoms of more serious injuries such as internal bleeding.

Common serious injuries from car crashes include:

  • Bone fractures
  • Lacerations
  • Burns
  • Internal bleeding
  • Organ damage
  • Whiplash
  • Concussions
  • Back injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries

Any of these serious injuries can have major consequences in your life.  For example, traumatic brain injuries can lead to memory loss, back injuries can take years to heal, and spinal cord injuries can cause paralysis.  All of these injuries can affect your ability to earn a living and take care of yourself and your family.
