What are common post-crash injuries?

On Behalf of | May 17, 2019 | Car Accidents |

Kentucky residents like you can have your whole life flipped around in an instant due to the negligent or reckless behavior of other drivers on the road. Russell & Ireland Law Group, LLC, are here to stand with you during these difficult times.

Some of the most common injuries of a car crash can also be some of the most devastating. Because of your position in a vehicle at the time of a wreck, it isn’t uncommon for drivers like you to face head, back, and neck injuries. Damage done to the neck, back or spine can affect mobility, sensation, and dexterity. Severe damage can result in paralysis, but even a less extreme injury can result in you having to take time off of work to heal. The combination of medical bills and a lapse in paychecks can be financially devastating.

Brain damage can result in numerous issues with long and short term memory, temperament, behavior, and your ability to self-monitor and regulate your emotional responses. People who have suffered from traumatic brain injury tend to be more impulsive with a shorter temper. More severe brain damage can entirely cripple a person’s ability to live on their own, and may result in a need for constant care and supervision.
