The most common car accident injuries

While there are several different types of injuries that can occur during an Illinois car accident, there are a few that have been shown to be the most common. Some are more serious than others, but all can interfere with your everyday activities. We at the Law Office of Kerley and Associates can help you seek the compensation you need to properly recover and get back to your life before the accident.


Physicians Now Urgent Care states that a surprising number of car accident injuries occur in the legs and knees. This can be something as simple as a cut or a bruise or as serious as a broken bone, dislocation or tear. You may be surprised to hear this since the upper body is more susceptible during an accident, but lower body injuries are also common.


Neck injuries are frequently reported after accidents. The blunt force can cause the head to whip forward and cause a variety of injuries. While whiplash is a common complaint, sprains and strains can occur when the neck ligaments are placed under pressure, as can disc herniation. The injury can also spread down to the back and spine and lead to even more serious injuries. Surgery can sometimes be required to completely repair the damage.


Another complaint of car accident victims is concussion. If the accident causes your brain to be shaken inside your skull, you may be left with a traumatic brain injury or other type of contusion. For more information on this topic, please visit our web page.
