A car accident is one of the scariest life events you can ever experience. Everything happens so fast, with twisted metal and shattered glass being thrown all around you, airbags deploying—in an instant, your life changes completely.

In an effort to help those suffering from a wide range of car and truck crash injuries, I recently came across an article from Nolo that highlights the most common types of injuries stemming from auto accidents.

Common Car Accident Injuries

Soft Tissue Injury

Soft tissue injuries are the most common injuries caused by auto accidents. They encompass any damage to your body’s connective tissue (muscles, ligaments, and tendons). A common example of a soft issue injury is the pain in the neck and back that come from whiplash (sudden movements imposed on the head and neck during a collision).

Scrapes and Cuts

Scrapes and cuts are often some of the most superficial injuries caused by car accidents. Broken glass, loose items inside the vehicle, and other projectiles are thrown around in a crash, often cutting or scraping your skin. These abrasions range from minor to serious, with some resulting in rapid blood loss. Airbags can also cause cuts or scrapes.

Head Injury

Head injuries are typically the most catastrophic of all car accident injury types, and occur at an alarming rate. An unexpected collision or change in direction cause the head of the driver and passenger to experience rapid, unnatural movements. This can result in bruises, cuts, or whiplash injuries, or worse—concussions or severe brain damage. More severe collision impacts can cause the fluid and tissue inside the skull to become damaged.

Chest Injury

Chest injuries are common in auto accidents because of the position of the chest and abdominal region behind the steering wheel. In a sudden-impact situation, your chest may smash against the steering wheel and suffer severe pull from the seatbelt or harness. In most cases this may result in bruising, but broken ribs and internal damage may occur.

Arm and Leg Injuries

Unlike the core of your body, your appendages are not securely fastened to any part of the vehicle. The same forces that whip your head and neck during a crash also thrash around your arms and legs, making them extremely susceptible to contusions, abrasions, and even broken bones and sprains.
