Suffering injuries after a serious Illinois car accident

Being involved in a serious car accident can be life-changing. Not only can it affect you from a financial point of view due to damage to the vehicle, medical bills and lost wages, but you will almost certainly suffer from an emotional perspective too. The stress that a car accident can create, as well and the pain and suffering that results from injuries can create a great deal of tension and trauma.

Before making a legal claim after a serious car accident, it is important that you make a recovery from your injuries as much as possible. But in some situations, serious injuries can mean that making a full recovery could take years. The following are some of the most common serious injuries that people suffer in the aftermath of a car accident.

Head injuries

One of the most serious forms of injuries that can occur in a car accident is head injuries. These usually occur when vehicles are traveling at high speeds. Traumatic brain injuries can cause permanent brain damage, while concussions can be resolved in a matter of hours or days.

Neck injuries

Whiplash is a common consequence of a car accident, and it has the potential to cause serious damage to muscles and ligaments in the neck. Vocal cord paralysis can also be suffered by car accident victims for a time after the accident.

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in an Illinois car accident, it is important that action is taken as soon as possible to hold the person at fault accountable, and so that damages can be recovered.
