Car Accidents in California
Motor vehicle accidents continue to disrupt the lives of thousands of people on a weekly basis here in California. We see many people forced to deal with overwhelming consequences. Suffering physical injuries in the aftermath of an automobile accident is incredibly common. Unfortunately, some of the injuries that victims suffer can be severe. Some of the most devastating injuries reported in serious car accidents across our state include:
- Internal organ injuries: There are a variety of internal organ injuries that can occur from car accidents. These include injuries to the lungs, heart, and other organs. These injuries can be life-threatening if they are not treated immediately. We see many people suffer from lung contusions, heart injuries, lung punctures, spleen ruptures, and other internal organ injuries that require extensive medical care.
- Spinal cord injuries: Car accidents are one of the leading causes of spinal cord injuries. The sudden impact of a car accident can cause the spine to snap, crush, or compress, resulting in serious damage to the spinal cord. Regrettably, these injuries often result in paralysis for sufferers.
- Severe compound fractures: Car accidents are one of the leading causes of severe compound fractures. Victims of car accidents often sustain compound fractures to the legs or arms. Treatment typically involves setting the bone and then wrapping it in a splint or cast.
