After an accident, the parties involved should immediately seek medical attention regardless of how the occupants of the vehicles involved in the collision feel.  Injuries sustained in crashes result in a host of different injuries. Some injuries like a fractured arm are highly visible, while other serious injuries such as a traumatic brain injury may not be as visibly noticeable.  In this article, our Arizona car accident law firm will cover some of the most common injuries sustained in an auto accident. As experienced auto accident attorneys, we represent injured clients or lost loved ones in a whole host of different accidents throughout the state of Arizona. 

Below are some of the most common types of traffic accidents that can cause serious, debilitating injuries and fatalities:

Head-on crashes. These types of accidents can prove fatal or result in severe injuries. The most common types of injuries that head-on crash victims sustain are head and brain injuries, whiplash, bone fractures, lost limbs, back and spinal cord injuries, and severe lacerations to various parts of the body.

Rear-end collisions. These types of accidents often cause whiplash, which is the most common injury sustained by rear-end, collision victims. Other injuries to the back and neck area also frequent.  Head injuries and soft-tissue damage also can arise in a rear-end crash.

Side impact crashes.  If you are located on the side of the vehicle where a T-bone, or side-impact, crash occurs, you are likely to sustain injuries to the neck, head, back, brain, chest, abdomen, limbs, pelvis, and soft tissue.

Fatal accidents.  In the most severe of accidents, serious head injuries, crushing injuries, burns, and brain injuries often result in wrongful death.

SUV rollover accidents. Sports utility vehicles have a higher center of gravity than other passenger vehicles.  Rollovers can occur, especially when a driver of a sports utility vehicle navigates a corner at an excessive rate of speed. Broken bones, injuries to the spinal cord, head injuries, and soft tissue injuries often occur in these types of accidents.

Accidents involving commercial vehicles and trucks. When a commercial vehicle such as an 18-wheeler hits a passenger vehicle, the results are often catastrophic, given the size and weight of the truck.  Injuries that typically occur in these types of accidents are burns, crushing injuries, spinal cord injuries, bone fractures, and fatalities.

Always Seek Emergency Medical Treatment Immediately After an Accident

If you or a loved one has been harmed in a traffic accident, it is imperative that you seek medical treatment as soon as possible to avoid further injury or accident injury complications.  Motor vehicle accidents can cause personal injuries that may take many days or weeks to appear. After an accident, you or your loved one may not realize that a severe injury or head injury has been sustained due to adrenaline and shock.
