Common Auto Accident Injuries
Even minor “fender bender” accidents can cause injuries. Pain and discomfort can include headaches and sore muscles. Other symptoms may include muscle sprains or ligament tears. You can experience pain in your neck or shoulders. It’s important that you seek medical care for any type of auto accident injury.
Auto Injuries that may not be Apparent Immediately
Injuries you’ve sustained in an auto accident might not be apparent immediately. It may take days, weeks, or sometimes even months for the injury to become apparent. Some of the injuries that can affect your work or home life are:
- Soft Tissue Damage: Soft tissue damage occurs when your ligaments or muscles are injured during an auto accident. This type of injury ranges from bruises to sprained or strained muscles and ligaments. If you were thrown against your car door or steering wheel, you will undoubtedly have soft tissue injuries. Injuries to your ligaments cause pain in your joints. Whiplash is the most common of soft tissue injuries.
- Whiplash: Whiplash occurs when your head is suddenly moved back and forth forcefully. This causes stress on the bones in your neck. Whiplash can cause further issues for you, such as dizziness, shoulder pain, back pain, headaches, and trouble concentrating. Symptoms of whiplash normally start within a few days of an auto accident.
- Neck and Back Pain: Neck and back pain is commonly caused by injuries to your soft tissues. It’s important to note this type of discomfort may not show up immediately after your accident. It may take weeks or even months for you to notice pain in your neck and back. It can be caused by you compensating for an injury.
