What types of car accident injuries come with legal protections?

It is unfortunately no secret that car accident victims can suffer catastrophic injuries in an unexpected car accident caused by a negligent driver. This blog recently discussed the legal resources available to victims of car accidents but it can also be helpful to understand the types of injuries for which those legal resources may be available.

Though car accident injuries can range in severity, they are all serious. Car accident victims can suffer head, neck and back injuries that can include concussions, brain injuries and traumatic brain injuries. Traumatic brain injuries can dramatically alter the lives of victims and their families. Additionally, car accident victims can also suffer chest injuries and whiplash-type injuries. In some circumstances, whiplash injuries can be challenging to treat and devastating to victims. Victims may also suffer trauma both physically and emotionally which can include broken bones and post traumatic stress.

For all of these injuries, help may be sought through the personal injury legal process which protects victims from some of the impacts of an unexpected car accident and car accident injuries they may suffer. Of the 5.6 million car accidents reported during 2012, 1.6 million of them involved injuries. The costs of car accidents are estimated at $277 billion each year. Car accidents can be costly physically, financially and emotionally.

Car accident victims can seek recourse through personal injury legal options which can help them recover compensation for the physical, financial and emotional injuries they have suffered in a car accident. It is important for car accident victims to be familiar with these legal resources that are available to help them when a negligent driver has harmed them.
