Millions of people are injured in car accidents every year in the United States.

Common Injuries Caused by Car Accidents
People can be injured in any type of car accident—even those that occur when one or more cars are traveling at a low speed. Some of the most common car accident injuries include but are not limited to:
Soft Tissue Injuries
Any damage to muscles, ligaments, and tendons is often referred to as a soft tissue injury. There are many different types of soft tissue injuries, but one of the most common is whiplash. This injury occurs when muscles and ligaments in the neck are stretched too far due to the sudden impact of a car accident. It affects the neck, head, and upper back, and can cause a great deal of pain.
Drivers can sustain chest injuries such as bruises or broken ribs when their chest collides with the steering wheel during a crash. However, drivers aren’t the only ones who may injure their chests. If the impact of the collision is strong enough, passengers who are wearing seatbelts may sustain bruising on their chests.
The impact of the collision could send your head jolting in many different directions. It’s possible that your head could bump into the steering wheel, dashboard, or even the window. As a result, passengers may suffer from concussions, traumatic brain injuries, or skull fractures.
Back injuries can range in severity from minor soft tissue injuries to severe spinal cord damage. If you damage your spinal cord during a car accident, you may start to lose feeling or control over certain parts of your body. Some spinal cord injuries are so severe that they cause partial or total paralysis.
Why It’s Essential to Document Evidence After an Accident
Compensation is never a guarantee in any personal injury case. However, documenting evidence after your accident can strengthen your accident claim and improve your chance of recovering fair compensation in your case
What should you document? It’s recommended that you snap photos of any injuries and property damage as soon as possible following the accident. If you can, take pictures of the scene of the accident, including any cars or other vehicles that were involved, debris from the collision, and nearby traffic signs and lights. This will help you reconstruct the accident later on if the driver of the other car begins to deny that he or she was at fault for the crash.
You should also document any expenses you incur as a result of your injuries. For example, keep track of your medical bills, cost of prescription medications, and any other expenses related to the accident. It’s important to also have a copy of your medical records and the results of X-rays, MRIs, or lab tests. This evidence will help you prove that your injuries exist, that they were caused by the accident, and that you should be compensated for the expenses you have incurred.
