Although teleworking has become the norm for many Americans, driving is still an everyday fact of life. Given how often we do it, it’s easy to forget how dangerous it can be. But more than 90 drivers die in car accidents every day, and thousands more are injured. Today, we’ll focus on that second scenario by elucidating some of the most common serious car accident injuries.
Amputation / Limb Loss
Victims of serious car accidents might experience limb loss as a result of their crash. We can break these injuries down into one of two categories: traumatic or non-traumatic amputation. In the former scenario, the accident directly results in the severing of the victim’s limb. As for the latter, we classify amputations as non-traumatic when they become medically necessary in the aftermath of the injury.
In either situation, individuals who experience limb loss due to car accidents have to live with a lifelong disability. A lawsuit can help to cover those costs.
Similarly to limb loss and amputations, people who experience disfigurement have their physical appearance altered by their serious car accident. This can take many forms, but it often results from severe burning or scarring of the face. Often, reconstructive surgery stands as the best solution for victims of disfigurement. But a return to normal is not always possible depending on the severity of the injury.
Traumatic Brain Injuries
Car accidents are a leading cause of traumatic brain injury (TBI) in the United States. These typically result from trauma to the head, and they can have devastating consequences for the victims. People who have experienced TBIs are often plagued by seizures, headaches, and chronic fatigue. Surgery may be necessary, and they may end up with a lifelong disability as a result.
The three consequences of serious car accidents we’ve laid out today are devastating. But there are more resources available to help people who have experienced such injuries than ever before. While the treatments and therapies available for victims of TBIs, disfigurement, and limb loss are costly, the Snyder Law Group can help.
