Common Injuries from Auto Accidents In Illinois
Auto Accident Injury in Illinois
Car accidents can cause a variety of injuries of various degrees of severity. Here are some typical injuries:
- Brain Injuries: These injuries occur from the force of another object hitting your head or the immediate deceleration and acceleration of the brain.
- Upper limbs: Fingers, hands, arms, and shoulders can suffer lacerations, fractures, and broken bones as a result of collision impact. Pain may be permanent and physical therapy and surgery may be required.
- Lower limbs: Legs, hips, feet, toes, ankles, and knees may be damaged in an automobile accident. Bones may be broken or fractured, nerves can be damaged, and surgery may be required as well as physical therapy.
- Internal organs: The impact and speed of a collision can also damage internal organs. Kidneys, liver, spleen, stomach, heart, and lungs can be jostled, traumatized, and damaged during a crash. The ribcage and sternum can also be fractured or broken.
- Neck injuries: The most common example of a neck injury in Illinois is whiplash. It is often caused by rear-ending accidents and results in damaged ligaments, nerves, and tissue limiting the victim’s movement of their neck and causing pain. While whiplash is often a temporary condition, it can also be permanent.
