Let’s ask ourselves a question. What is the most common type causes of injuries you have heard in recent days? I am pretty sure car accident is on the very top of the list of your causes.

Car and road accidents have to be one of the most renowned cause to so many severe injuries. Almost every single month so many people which range from five to six million report road or car accidents, this number is alarming for this situation. And if you think about it, all of these were the cases that were actually being reported to the authorities, now think of all of the accidents and incidents that even did not get reported. That might make the number go even more high. Most of the people involved in the car accidents are lucky enough to get away with it without getting severe injuries in accident like these, and they all usually end up with only a few minor scratches but there is always a hefty amount of damage to both the vehicles usually. But when there occurs a disastrous car accidents, the injuries are way more severe than small and minor scratches. These injuries can be way too severe than you might think they are, and to to make matters even more worse, stats are showing that the number of accidents involving fatal injuries are increasing every year at an alarming rate. Now just for your general knowledge and information, we have compiled a list of a few most common types of injuries that you can get through a car accident.

1.) The Most Renowned: Whiplash Car Accident Injuries

Whiplash is usually thought of as one of the most common type of injury in car accidents. It is basically another nomenclature for ligaments, tendons and muscle injuries, which are resulted from an automobile accident. These injuries can cause immense pain in your muscles and tendons, but why do these pain occur though? Well, you see when a car accident occurs, your body gets a jerk which causes you to move at a very high speed for a very short amount of time, although this speed is very short lived but it is way more than a human could attain on its own. This sudden extreme movement causes immense strain on your muscles, tendons, ligaments and even some tissues as well. Although they involve no breakage of bones, but still it is very painful especially the Neck pain after car accident is the worst and takes a really long time to heal and to recover.

2.) Mild and Subtle but Painful: Scrapes and Cuts

We all might know this that, scrapes and cuts are not that severe but they can be brutal if they end up causing infections. Scrapes and cuts can be caused by a lot of different reasons. Like you can get cuts from impact of your car or the loose objects in your car might come and hit you and cause bruises. Even though, these are not that severe but still they can cause a lot of pain, and it is best for you to avoid them.

3.) The Worst Thing that can happen: Broken Bones

Primary bones for instance the ones in your legs, shins, arms, elbows, shoulder and even in your back can break due to strong impact after a car accident. As we discussed above, a car accident make your body move with an absurd amount of speed. This speed cannot be handled by your bones when come in contact with the vehicle or any other object, which eventually causes them to break or rupture. Broken bones are the worst pain for a car accident injury and no one would want to experience it, so it is better if you keep your calm and be extra cautious on the roads while driving.

4.) Not Very Visible but Very Painful: Internal Bleeding

Now, this might be new to you but it is very common in car accident injuries than you might think it is. Internal bleeding can be very painful and dangerous if not treated quickly and properly right after the car accident occurs. That is why we always say that it is very important to reach for medical attention right after the incident occurs even for the slightest injuries, because what you might think is just a small scrape or negligible pain could turn into a severe injury and cause a lot of problems. Hence why, you should stay careful on the roads and get medical attention of it is even for the slightest injury.

5.) The Most Fragile Bone in the Body: Broken Ribs

Pretty sure that ribs are the most fragile part of your body. That is why, it is very important for you to take very good care of them because even the smallest and moderate impact on your rib cage can cause them to break easily. Now, let me assure you that broken ribs can be very painful and they should not be taken for granted. A lot of scenarios can cause your ribs to break, for example when you are pressed against either the back, the front, or the side of your car, you are applying immense pressure on your ribs which might cause the ribs to break. That is the reason why it is very necessary for you to be cautious on the roads while driving.

After getting to know almost all of these things about these accidents, I cannot stress enough over the fact that how important it is for every single one of us to take this issue with immense seriousness. So, I immensely urge you all too please do make sure that you are being cautious on the main roads, also it is very important for you to follow all the rules and make sure that you, the people around you the people you love are safe and make sure that we drive responsibly and carefully.
