Common Injuries Sustained in a Car Accident

Depending on the speed and size of the vehicles involved, car accidents often result in either minor or catastrophic injuries. Some motor vehicle accidents even lead to some life-altering injuries or fatalities.

The most common car accident injuries include:

  • Head and brain injuries
  • Back and spine injuries
  • Neck and chest injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Deep lacerations

If you or a loved one has been in a car accident, the first thing that you should do is to check each passenger for injuries and seek medical attention immediately. You may also call the police to help file a police report. If you are able, take photos of the area of the accident including the condition of your car and the other vehicle.

Taking Pictures of the Car Accident is Important

Photos of the accident scene can sometimes be the key to a successful case. If you don't need to be transported to a hospital, be sure to take both photos and video of everything you can immediately after the accident. Focus on capturing details such as:

  • damage to your car
  • damage to other cars involved
  • injuries, even if the pictures are graphic
  • location of the accident, including mile markers if there are any
  • skid marks in the street
  • exact time - take a picture of your watch if you're wearing one
  • street signs
  • damage to other personal property
  • witnesses and bystanders

The details captured in pictures will help tell the story of how your accident happened and provide clear, indisputable proof of your injuries and property damage. They will also help you keep your facts straight by jogging your memory if things seem hazy in the days and weeks after the accident. Video footage is also incredibly helpful, especially if the other driver appears to be intoxicated or is overly agitated.
