What could a serious car accident injury look like?

One minute you're driving along, all is normal and right and, in the next split second, your life and the life of your loved ones changes in an instant. That's how quick a car accident can impact your life. Here is what to consider if you believe your own or a loved one's injury may be lasting and could be attributed to another's negligence.

While accidents aren't always attributable to ill-will on the part of the other driver, all drivers owe themselves and others on the road a duty of care. Failure to uphold that duty can easily cause others injuries that will require medical care. It can also cause the victim to lose wages or a quality of life they once had.

Serious injuries sustained in car accidents could affect the neck and back. Since car accidents are often characterized by a sudden force, this could have a serious impact on the spinal cord that could cause long-term disability and chronic pain. Blunt force trauma to the chest is not uncommon since that area can take the brunt on force on impact. Broken ribs and collapsed lungs aren't unheard of and those with heart problems could even go into cardiac arrest. Internal organs can also be affected.

One must seek medical attention immediately if they are involved in a serious car accident. If another person's negligence caused the accident, it may be possible for the victim to file a lawsuit to recover compensation for medical care, both past and future, lost wages and loss of quality of life, just to name a few.
