Sandy Springs, GA – Accident with Injuries on I-285 near Ashford Dunwoody Rd

Each year, car crashes have devastating impacts on the lives of victims across Georgia. In many cases, injured parties are forced to go through extensive medical treatment. Although no two accidents are alike, we see many people suffer from serious injuries that are similar to others. Some common injuries reported in car crashes in our state include:

  • Internal bleeding: Internal bleeding occurs when an organ is damaged in an accident and begins to bleed internally. This type of injury requires immediate medical treatment to avoid further complications.
  • Head and brain injuries: Traumatic brain injury (TBI) can lead to long-term disabilities and loss of cognitive functioning. Even mild TBIs can cause headaches, memory problems, balance issues, and personality changes. Other head injuries may include skull fractures or lacerations.
  • Back and spinal cord injuries: Damage to the spine can range from minor sprains or strains to full paralysis. Injuries can be caused by forceful impact or sudden movement of the head or body.
  • Soft tissue damage: Soft tissue damage includes bruises, scrapes, lacerations, contusions, muscle tears, sprains, and strains. While these are generally easier to treat than broken bones or internal bleeding, they may require surgery if significant force was applied during the collision.
