Car Accidents in Los Angeles Can Lead to All Types of Injuries 

After a collision, you may be suffering from one or more of the following common car accident injuries:

Lacerations and Bruises

In a car accident, the force of impact against the interior compartment (e.g dashboard, door windows, the back of the front seat) or a projectile can cause deep cuts and bone bruises, which may result in excessive bleeding and cause dangerous infections.

Strain and Sprains

Tendon strains and ligament sprains are both common car accident injuries, but torn tendons or ligaments take much longer to heal and often require surgery. Whiplash is also common in car accidents, involving muscles, ligaments, and tendons of the neck, which is caused by the sudden back and forth motion of the head.

Broken Bones

Car accidents are one of the leading causes of broken bones, such as fractures of the ribs, arms, legs, fingers, toes, hips, knees, shoulders, elbows, ankles, and wrists. A high-impact collision can result in crushed bones. Seriously broken bones require surgery and must be stabilized with surgical plates, pins, or screws.

Internal Bleeding and Organ Damage or Loss

Internal bleeding is not always properly diagnosed and may be life-threatening, which makes it crucial to receive immediate medical care. Moreover, severe injury to an organ (e.g. the spleen), may necessitate its removal which will have lasting consequences.

Head and Brain Injuries

Skull fractures, concussions, and brain injuries can be life-altering. A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can cause severe headaches, confusion, lightheadedness, loss of consciousness, memory loss, and may result in neurological impairments. TBIs typically require extensive rehabilitation and may even necessitate lifelong care.

Back and Spinal Cord Injuries

Car accidents often result in back and spinal cord injuries, such as herniated discs and fractured vertebrae. Also, the spinal cord can be severed in a high-impact collision, which can result in limited mobility or even complete paralysis (e.g. paraplegia, quadriplegia).

Burns

Car fires can also occur after an accident due to fuel leaks or ruptured gas tanks, which can cause severe burns to the vehicle’s occupants. Victims can also be burned by steam, hot liquids, chemicals, or scorching surfaces. Serious burns are excruciatingly painful and can result in disfiguring scars; burn victims are also vulnerable to infection.

Wrongful Death

Some car accident injuries can be fatal. A head-on collision can lead to immediate death, while other car accident victims succumb due to complications. If you have lost a loved one due to fatal car accident injuries, you can pursue a wrongful death lawsuit to obtain just compensation.
