Common Types of Car Accident Injuries

Car accidents can result in a range of injuries for victims, depending on the severity of the crash. 

Common auto accident injuries can include:

  • Head and brain injuries
  • Back and spine injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Internal injuries
  • Burns
  • And more

It's crucial to seek immediate medical care after an accident, even if you feel fine. In some cases, symptoms may not appear right away, but delaying medical treatment can worsen the injuries and extend your recovery time. 

Types of Compensation You May Be Entitled to After a Car Accident

The aftermath of a car accident can be a challenging situation to navigate. Aside from dealing with the physical impacts of the incident, you may also find yourself under financial strain. Depending on the details of your accident, you may be entitled to certain damages.

Compensation you could be entitled to:

However, determining which damages you are entitled to can be a difficult process to navigate alone. That's where our experienced Charleston car auto accident attorney comes in.
