When you’re involved in a car accident, your vehicle is not the only thing that’s going to be damaged. A collision between vehicles can cause severe injuries to multiple parts of your body, and making a full recovery becomes impossible for many victims.

Facing permanent physical consequences because of a distracted or intoxicated driver can be a nightmare, as unexpected insurance costs and medical expenses can cripple your finances and destroy your savings. If you also consider that you could lose your ability to work for an extended amount of time or even permanently, the situation becomes even worse.

Injuries resulting from a car accident are dangerous and can be fatal in the long run, as they can be invisible while still causing damage. Many drivers avoid seeking immediate medical care because they don’t see or feel anything out of the ordinary, while internal damage to organs or the brain has already been done.

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

Brain injuries are extremely common for accident victims. Due to the fact that a collision between vehicles happens at extremely high speeds and involves a great deal of force, the chances of causing internal damage to the brain are extremely high.

When the brain is damaged by a blow or a piercing object, life-altering effects are one of the consequences a victim is going to experience. Impacts to the head can change the way your entire body functions and handles information. Loss of memory and changes in behavior are common symptoms that indicate a concussion or a TBI.

The majority of accident victims also fail to completely recover from this type of injury. While healing is not impossible, a full recovery is unlikely and a traumatic brain injury typically needs lifelong treatment.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Car accident injuries are not only physical, as they have the ability to affect your mental health too. The impact resulting from a collision can cause extreme stress, anxiety and fear at the same time. Anytime your mind has to experience a terrible and unexpected event, there’s potential for permanent damage to be done.

Your emotional suffering could cause nightmares and stop you from getting behind the wheel in the future. Your inability to be independent and live your life like you used to can cause persistent depression.

When you file a personal injury claim, you’re entitled to compensation for everything you’ve been through that was a direct result of the accident. That includes any type of emotional distress you might have suffered from.

Soft Tissue Injuries

Bruises, sprains and damage to your muscles and tendons is not as harmless as you might think. While most bruises generally heal within a couple of weeks, it’s not impossible for your wounds to get infected and require specific treatment.


The impact caused by a car accident can cause your body to move in ways it’s not supposed to. If the head and neck are suddenly jerked back and forth, muscles and ligaments in the area can get stretched beyond their normal range of motion and cause pain that has the potential to become chronic if not treated properly.

Back Injuries

Injuries to the spine are an expected consequence of a car accident, but that doesn’t make them less dangerous. This area of the human body is not made to sustain heavy impacts and if one of the discs is ruptured, you may feel excruciating pain.

Your mobility will also be limited for a significant amount of time, and even if you’re able to recover in the future, you could still be unable to lift heavy objects or do strenuous activities. Surgery is often required in order to make a full recovery.

Broken Bones

Broken bones are very common even when minor car accidents take place. Also referred to as fractures, this type of injury is significantly more dangerous than the others. Not only does it cause an immense amount of pain, it can also cause severe internal injuries that are difficult to treat.

For example, an individual with broken ribs may have a punctured lung. You might also be unable to notice a broken bone until several hours have passed, as shock and adrenaline might mask the pain. That’s one of the many reasons why you should always seek medical attention.
