Car crashes can cause a wide variety of different injuries to the parties involved, from bumps and bruises to head trauma and broken bones. Whatever the case may be, the injured party may be able to claim compensation for his or her losses if another driver’s negligence caused the crash. However, there are some types of common injuries that you might experience if you are involved in a Georgia vehicle collision.
For instance, if you hit your head on the steering wheel, window, or windshield, you could experience head trauma, which can consist of a concussion, cuts and bruises, traumatic brain injury, and neck injuries. If you are hit from the side, you may suffer broken bones in your arms, ribs, and legs. This type of collision can also cause spinal injuries and damage to internal organs.
A rollover accident or another type of collision that causes your vehicle to spin can result in serious injuries, too. If the occupants are not wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash (and sometimes even if they are), they can be ejected from the vehicle and strike other objects, such as trees or telephone poles, in addition to the vehicle itself and objects inside the vehicle.
