Motor vehicle accidents can lead to a variety of injuries

The busy summer season is here in Washington, DC. With tourists flocking to see the sites and locals out enjoying the nice weather, the roadways are going to be full of vehicles. The increase in traffic might mean that there are more motor vehicle accidents. There are a host of injuries that might occur during a motor vehicle accident, but some are more common than others.

One injury that you might suffer in a car accident is whiplash. This neck injury is often the subject of jokes because it isn't an injury that is readily visible to the naked eye. It is now known that whiplash is a very serious injury that can have long-lasting effects on the victim.

Blunt force trauma injuries are also possible in a motor vehicle accident. These can lead to broken bones, bruising and other similar injuries. If the chest is impacted, a collapsed lung might occur. If the abdomen is impacted, internal injuries or bleeding might occur.

Head and back injuries are also common in car accidents. Head injuries can include concussions or traumatic brain injuries. Back injuries can include pulled muscles and spinal cord damage.

Whether you suffer from physical injuries or not, there is a chance that you will suffer from emotional trauma. Sometimes, that emotional trauma is even more difficult to overcome than the physical injuries are after an accident.

No matter what type of injury you suffered in a motor vehicle accident, you might choose to seek compensation. Knowing how to investigate and present your case are crucial in these civil lawsuits. An experienced personal injury attorney can answer your questions and provide guidance.
