Injuries Caused by Mississippi Car Accidents

Richton, MS - Several Injured in Collision Involving Log Truck on Hwy 589

In a negligence-related crash, a victim can sustain serious injuries that come with long-term consequences. Sadly, vehicle accidents often lead to injuries ranging from serious to catastrophic.

Some of the most common injuries that arise from Mississippi car accidents are:

  • Neck injuries: Neck injuries caused by car accidents are generally referred to as whiplash. This is the most common injury because it can occur in almost any kind of crash, even a low-speed fender-bender. The more serious the car accident, the more long-term complications can arise from increasingly severe cases of whiplash.   
  • Head/brain injuries: A common outcome of serious car accidents is a traumatic brain or other head injury caused by the sudden impact and resulting uncontrolled head movement. The impact can cause the victim’s head to strike the steering wheel, vehicle frame, dashboard, or deployed airbag resulting in long-term or permanent trauma.
  • Spine/back injuries: Spine and back injuries are some of the most serious. For example, a significant back injury can cause irreparable damage to your spinal cord. If those nerves are damaged, it can cause paralysis. In some cases, you a victim will lose all functionality in their lower extremities. The worst-case scenario for a spine injury ends in quadriplegia, which causes immobility in both arms and legs.
