Injuries That Commonly Occur in Los Angeles Car Accidents

Los Angeles is one of the largest cities in the country, and unlike those in New York City, many people in Los Angeles rely on cars as their primary form of transportation. Car accidents in Los Angeles happen frequently in every neighborhood and at all hours of the day and night. When car accidents occur, the injuries that result can range from moderate to life-altering.

Getting treatment for a car accident injury can result in significant medical expenses. If you were injured in a Los Angeles car accident and you think someone else was responsible, you can sue the liable party and seek a settlement to pay for your damages. A Los Angeles car accident lawyer from the Law Offices of Gary K. Walch, a Law Corporation will work hard to maximize your claim in court. 

Spinal Damage

Spinal damage often occurs in Los Angeles car accidents when the body is hit forcefully, especially at an undesirable angle. A moderate spinal injury may include a herniated disc, chronic back or neck pain, or pinched nerves. A more severe spinal injury may include a partially or fully severed spine, which can lead to a loss of motor and sensory function.  

Traumatic Brain Injuries

The brain is fragile, and because car accidents can shake the head, cause the head to slam into the car, or cause drivers and passengers to be thrown out of the car, traumatic brain injuries may occur. A moderate brain injury, such as a concussion, may lead to headaches, neck pain, and blurry vision. More severe brain injuries can cause loss of learning ability, memory loss, and changes in personality. 

Bone Fractures

Bone fractures are one of the most common injuries to result from car accidents because there are over two hundred bones in the body and each one can be broken or fractured when hit forcibly in a wreck. While some broken bones heal quickly, others may fracture at unique angles or in multiple places and can require many surgeries and months of physical therapy before healing is achieved. 

Burn Injuries

Because cars are fueled by flammable gasoline and other chemicals, car accidents sometimes result in fires. If car accident victims are left unconscious by a collision or otherwise can’t escape the vehicle quickly, they may suffer burn injuries from the wreck. Burn injuries can be painful and may cause severe scarring and disfigurement. Victims of burn injuries may need both physical and mental treatment to recover.
