Common Car Accident Injuries in Hastings | Hastings Personal Injury Attorneys

Injuries Seen in Personal Injury Claims

It has been estimated that there have been approximately 16,000 motor vehicle crashes per year in Nebraska over the past ten years. If you are injured in a car crash, always seek medical attention for any injury, big or small. Based on the type of accident, we see a few injuries more commonly than others. 

Head Injuries

Car accidents account for over 200,000 head injuries every year. Any injury to your brain is cause for concern. Head injuries can range from a minor concussion to a severe traumatic brain injury. While the treatment for a concussion usually involves rest and decreasing visual stimulation, more severe bleeding and swelling to the brain may require surgery. 

Headaches, nausea and vomiting, changes in memory, speech, and behavior,  sensitivity to light and sound, and possible loss of consciousness may occur. Long-term effects may result in permanent changes in function, impairing your ability to return to your prior profession and activities you once enjoyed. 

Internal Injuries

Depending on the force of impact of your accident, your body may be thrown around in your car, causing impact to many parts of your body. The dangerous thing about internal injuries is that you cannot see them. You may not realize that you are injured immediately at the scene. You may suffer damage to your liver, kidneys, spleen, abdomen, and other internal organs. 


Broken bones cause severe pain, swelling, and decreased mobility. These injuries are evident immediately. Most fractures require surgical repair, while minor fractures may need a cast or a splint. Depending on the severity of the damage and your body’s speed in healing, the pain and impact it has on your mobility can cause major disruptions in your life and time lost from work. 

Psychological Injuries

Being involved in a car accident is not something you can prepare for. The immediate impact not only may cause physical injuries as above, but car accidents are frightening and may result in post-traumatic stress disorder from even a minor crash. Nightmares, depression, and fear of getting behind the wheel again may interfere with your ability to enjoy life as you once did.
