How people may be injured in a car crash

Michigan residents and others who are involved in an auto accident may sustain a variety of injuries. Common injuries include brain trauma and whiplash. Neck and back pain might also be felt in the aftermath of a car crash. The types of injuries that a person experience depends on where the vehicle was struck, and how severe a person's injuries are depend partially on the speed at which it was hit.

For instance, people inside of a stationary vehicle that is hit by another going 15 miles per hour may experience minor injuries. However, those injuries could be severe if the stationary vehicle was hit by a car traveling 40 miles per hour at the time of impact. The type of injuries and the severity of those injuries could also be impacted by the car's design. If those inside the car were wearing seat belts, the odds of suffering serious injuries or death may be reduced. The same is true if the vehicle had airbags that deployed at the time of impact.

In addition to the physical pain caused by an injury, financial injury could occur as well. Expenses after a car accident might include the cost of a hospital stay, and injured victims may also be impacted financially if they cannot work after an accident.

Those who are hurt in an accident caused by a reckless driver might be unable to work to pay off medical bills and other costs related to the accident. If negligence plays a role in causing a crash, an injured victim may be entitled to compensation. Passengers inside the vehicle that caused the accident might also be entitled to pursue compensation. An attorney may be able to review a case and help an individual throughout the legal process.
