Intersection car accidents result in serious injuries such as brain trauma, fractures, paralysis, whiplash, and other serious injuries. Brain injury is one of the more serious and unfortunately common result of a car accident. In a collision, passengers often have no time to brace themselves for impact, and this can cause the brain to smash up against the surfaces of the car’s interior. While air bags can lessen the impact, in some cases airbags do not deflate or the passenger hits their head against a part of the vehicle that is not protected by airbags. Blunt force trauma to the head in this manner can result in bruising, swelling, or even bleeding in the brain. In extreme cases, the skull may become fractured or cracked, leading to even more serious injury.Do You Have a Claim After Your Car Collision?
