Common Car Accident Injuries
There are several car accident injuries that could be preventable. For example, enforcing everyone in the vehicle to wear a seatbelt. This small act could prevent serious injury or even death in the event of a car accident. Another example would be driving a vehicle with properly equipped airbags. Or pay close attention to driving while operating a motor vehicle.
Car accident injuries that could be preventable include:
- Brain injuries
- Back injuries
- Face injuries
- Neck injuries
- Foot, leg or knee injuries
Preventing injuries to these areas requires observing safe practices and being smart.
Many serious car accidents may result in brain injuries. Some types of brain injuries include head injury, traumatic brain injury or concussion. Often a brain injury leads to a coma or loss of memory. When a vehicle is equipped with recommended front and side airbags, a possible car accident brain injury could be preventable. The risk of injury from an airbag deployment is minimum compared to the permanent effects from a serious brain injury according to information collected by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
Back injuries from car accidents may include a slip disc injury, a minor sprain or fracture or other injuries to the spine or lower back. To prevent a back injury during a car accident, wear a seatbelt to reduce impact.
Injuries to the face include bruising, scrapes, bone fractures or injury to the jaw or teeth. Most face injuries occur when a person is jolted into a door or window of the car from the impact of a car accident. To avoid injury to the face, react by covering your face with your hands and wrap your head in your arms to act as a helmet.
Injuries to the neck can be prevented by wearing a seatbelt with neck restraint. Wearing a seatbelt will reduce spinal disc injury and whiplash.
Foot, Leg or Knee Injuries
Keep your feet flat on the floor with your legs bent at a 90-degree angle to reduce injury.
