Common Injuries Resulting from Car Accidents
Experienced Fort Lauderdale neck injury attorneys explain common injuries
During a car accident, extreme forces can be exerted on the human body, resulting in many different types of injuries and damage. And, while no two car accidents are the same, there are certain common types of injuries that most frequently occur.
At the Fort Lauderdale law firm of Fazio, DiSalvo & Abers, P.A., our auto accident and neck injury lawyers possess decades of combined experience litigating lawsuits stemming from many different types of car accident injuries.
Neck and back injuries
Car accident victims often experience sudden, violent movements of the head and neck during collisions. Back and neck injuries are, therefore, among the most common injuries.
Neck injury attorneys often handle cases involving injuries to both the soft tissues and the skeletal portions of the neck. Whiplash, for example, is a common neck injury caused by the snapping motion of the head during a car accident. Such neck injuries can lead to long-term pain, and can require years of medical treatment and therapy — and, in some extreme cases, they are permanent.
Injuries to the spinal cord are also common in car accidents, and can result it paraplegia, quadriplegia or the loss of the use of extremities. Most spinal cord injuries require extensive rehabilitation.
One of our experienced back injury lawyers can help determine if your particular injury might lead to a valid personal injury lawsuit.
Air bag injuries
Air bags are meant to protect car accident victims, but they can sometimes cause injury. When an airbag deploys, the impact it places on the body of the victim can often injure the head and neck, torso and upper limbs. While the vast majority of such accidents are classified as minor, some are serious. If your injury case involves a faulty air bag, a car accident lawyer at Fazio, DiSalvo & Abers, P.A. can help you analyze your air bag injury and see if a valid product liability case might be in order.
Other common accident injuries
Some of the other types of bodily harm that our personal injury attorneys frequently handle include:
- Head and brain injuries, including traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Psychological injuries, including post-traumatic stress
