Some of the more common types of injuries that can occur with car collisions are:
- Brain trauma
- Eye injuries
- Facial injuries
- Ear injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Scarring and lacerations
- Chronic pain conditions
- Back injuries
- Arm and wrist injuries
- Herniated discs
- Whiplash and soft tissue injuries
- Crushed bones or compound fractures
- Quadriplegia and paraplegia
These injuries can change your life. They can cause severe pain and depression or can rob you of your mobility and your ability to work. Many people have to spend years getting medical treatment to simply manage a serious injury and some find that their lives are permanently affected by their injury.Common Injuries can Lead to Significant Financial Distress
Your injuries may cause not only suffering and pain, but also stress and financial problems. This is because your injuries may result in:
- A temporary leave of absence
- Permanent inability to work
- Medical expenses
- Costs related to medical devices (braces, wheelchairs, prosthetics)
- Expenses related to at-home care or an assisted living facility
- Travel costs related to doctors’ visits
- Expenses related to making your home or car accessible if you have been permanently injured
- Medication costs
- Rehabilitation, therapy, and other services
Essentially, you may not be able to work and therefore not able to earn an income at the exact moment when you face a battery of injury-related expenses. In addition to the expenses related to your injury, you may need to pay to repair your car or other property damaged in the crash.
