Injuries in a Car Accident

If you have been injured in a car accident, the first thing you need to do is assess yourself. Are you bleeding? What is the extent of your injuries? If you are badly hurt, call 911 and request for an ambulance for you to be transported to the nearest hospital. If you are able to move, go to the safest side of the road and wait for help.

While injuries caused by a car accident may vary from person to another, there are some common ones. For fatal crashes, head and back injuries are the most common while for minor car collisions, whiplash injuries are quite common.
