Car Accidents in Georgia
A traffic accident can have a devastating impact on your life. Unfortunately, tens of thousands of people across Georgia are left with serious injuries due to accidents that take place every year. Common injuries reported in car crashes here in Georgia include:
- Broken bones: Car accidents can cause broken bones, particularly in the ribs, pelvis, and legs. These injuries can be extremely painful and may require surgery to heal properly. In some cases, broken bones can also lead to internal bleeding and other serious complications.
- Head injuries: Head injuries are one of the most serious types of injuries that can occur in a car accident. They can range from concussions to traumatic brain injuries (TBI). Head injuries can often lead to long-term consequences, such as memory problems, paralysis, and even death.
- Spinal cord injuries: Spinal cord injuries can range from minor nerve damage to paralysis. If a person suffers a spinal cord injury in a car accident, they may not regain full use of their limbs and may require long-term care.
- Lacerations: Lacerations are deep cuts that can be caused by glass, metal fragments, or other debris in the car. These injuries often require medical attention and can cause severe bleeding and infection if left untreated.
