Injuries from a Car Accident
It is vital that if you are injured in an accident to seek medical attention. If there is any question get to a doctor or the ER immediately and get properly diagnosed and treated.
This will help to avoid complications later.
It will also be a benefit to have the injury documented in order to file a claim against the liable party.
Head Injury – A head injury can be devastating and leave a person with Traumatic Brain Injury. In mild cases there may be a concussion that will go away after a few days. In more serious accidents the brain may be damaged and the symptoms can linger for a while. In worst cases the brain may be permanently damaged. A person with a long-term head injury will have problems that will affect their work life and daily way of living.
Spine Injury – A back injury can affect the spinal column which can lead to permanent paralysis in most serious injuries. Anytime the spinal cord is injured is scary. The loss of movement and feeling is one of the worst injuries a person can have. When a car accident causes a spine injury the person may need long term care and medical attention. If the spine and head is severely injured a fatality can occur.
Chest and Ribs – This injury is common when a person is hit and the seatbelt comes into play. A hard impact can lead to hitting the steering wheel as well. Bruises and internal injuries can be hard to detect at first but may be damaging. There may be serious pain and suffering if the ribs are broken or cracked.
Neck – This will often come in the form of whiplash. When the neck is jerked forward and backward quickly the neck can get injured. This is a common injury when hit from behind and will need medical attention in order to heal properly. The neck can be painful if the tendons and muscles are ripped in an accident. The pain however may not be fully noticed for days after the accident.

3 Most Common Car Accidents
Rear End – A car accident where another vehicle hits you from behind is one of the most common accident types. Drivers looking around distracted is one of the ways an accident can occur. A driver slams on their brakes and the driver behind is caught off guard. This happens a lot on the strip.
Looking down at your phone talking, texting, or looking at maps for directions can cause this accident. When a vehicle follows too close behind and is tailgating a rear end accident can take place. All kinds of injuries can happen. Depending on the speed of the crash and size of vehicles involved will often determine the amount of damage. Whiplash is a common injury in a rear end crash.
Side Impact – Often called a T-bone accident because of the way a car hits the side of another car. Once again depending on how violent of an accident this is the results and injuries can vary. A high-speed accident hitting the passenger side with a person in the front seat can do major damage. Same goes for the driver if hit on the driver’s side.
Head On – These accidents are some of the worst. Getting hit head on can result in fatalities if it is at high speed. This deadly accident does not always involve other vehicles and a driver can hit all kinds of things in a crash like; an animal, tree, wall etc.
When the weather makes the roads hazardous a chance for a head on collision increases.
A car can lose control on an icy road when it hits the brakes and goes head on with another vehicle.
Even if you survive this accident, it can still bring some serious injuries with it.
TBI, broken bones and internal injuries are not uncommon in head on crashes.
With all these accidents there may be multiple vehicles involved and multiple injuries left behind.
It is important that you get to the emergency room or see a doctor immediately.
Because Paradise is a 24/7 town the roads are always active.
There may be those driving under the influence and definitely those distracted by the bright lights and excitement of the city.
Always drive cautiously and stay alert.
It is not always possible to avoid an accident no matter how perfect you may be driving. Accidents will still happen.
