Car crash injuries vary from very minor to catastrophic

The jolting motions that are associated with car crashes can lead to very serious injuries; however, some people are lucky enough to walk away with only minor injuries. One thing that remains constant through all car accident injuries is that the victims have to live with the effects of the accident for a long time to come.

Some injuries, such as spinal cord injuries (SCIs) or traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), can come with serious implications. Victims of these injuries can have permanent disabilities that mean they are unable to work because they can't function how they could before the accident. This means that a person who was self-sufficient before the accident might be fully dependent upon others after the crash.

Other injuries, such as broken bones and soft tissue injuries, can have effects that are long lasting but not necessarily permanent. These injuries might require you to seek medical care. You might have to take time off of work while you heal, but you will likely be able to return to work eventually.

Minor injuries, such as lacerations and contusions, would cause you pain but likely won't have any long-lasting effects on your life. You probably wouldn't have to take any time off of work.

If you do end up with an injury that requires costly care and time off of work, you might opt to seek compensation for those injuries. This is done through a personal injury lawsuit, which must be filed quickly after the crash. You should learn more about this process if you are considering filing a claim for damages related to your injuries.
