When you think of injuries resulting from a car accident, you may first think of whiplash or a concussion from hitting your head. However, a wide range of injuries can occur because of an auto accident - both physical and mental. No matter what type of injury you sustained, you always want to seek the necessary treatment and then discuss your rights with a personal injury lawyer as soon as you can.

Physical Injuries

The impact from a car accident can be severe, and almost any part of the body may be injured. The following are only some injuries that car accident victims regularly suffer:


The above injuries can range from relatively minor conditions that heal in a matter of weeks to severe injuries that cause a lifetime of problems and impairments. Some injuries, such as a TBI, can permanently affect your cognitive and physical abilities. Other injuries like serious burns can cause permanent scarring and disfigurement. 

Mental Injuries

Following a serious car accident, you should always pay attention to your mental health as well as your physical health. Dealing with the pain and impairments of a severe injury can be mentally challenging and can result in depression, anxiety, or other mood disorders. Suffering a change in appearance because of scarring or disfigurement can also result in mental conditions.

Furthermore, the trauma of the crash itself can result in post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which is a condition that can have many different effects. Victims of PTSD may experience anger issues, may have irrational fears, flashbacks, and nightmares, and may even be afraid to leave the house. PTSD and similar conditions often require significant treatment to overcome.
