Car Accident Injuries FAQ:
What is the most common injury in a car accident?
Soft tissue injuries are some of the most commonly sustained injuries in car accidents. This can include any type of muscle, ligament or tendon tear, sprain, bruise, etc. Whiplash is also considered a soft tissue injury and is very common in car accidents.
Can even a minor car accident cause injuries?
Even if the accident you were in resulted in minimal damage to your vehicle, that doesn't automatically mean that your body didn't suffer injury. Something as minor as a fender bender can result in whiplash or soft tissue injuries. It's always best to have a medical professional evaluate you after your accident to be sure.
How long will I be sore after a car accident?
Pain from minor sprains or bruises will usually dissipate after a week or two. If you are still experiencing pain after that length of time, this is a good indicator that your injuries may be more serious than previously thought. Following an accident, even if you feel fine, you should always have a medical professional check you for serious injuries.
