Car accident injuries can be fatal or life-altering. Survivors may be permanently disabled, have a significantly shortened lifespan, and may require full-time care and supervision for the rest of their lives. Those who make a full recovery may only be able to do so after extensive medical care. Some types of injuries can be overlooked immediately after an accident, but cause chronic pain and disability. The Madison car accident attorneys of Boller & Vaughan can help you get just compensation for your car accident injuries.
Common Car Accident Injuries
Car accident injuries can include:
- Brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Back injury
- Soft tissue injury
- Shoulder injury
- Knee injury
- Hip injury
- Severe burns
- Broken bones and fractures
- Damage to internal organs
Whiplash is an often misunderstood injury. Whiplash can cause damage to the soft tissues in the neck which does not show up in standard medical tests such as X-ray. It can also cause brain injury which often goes overlooked when there is no blow to the head. The symptoms of whiplash injury may not appear for days, weeks, or even months after an accident.
