Auto Injuries Q & A

What are some common auto injuries?

The force from a car accident can cause your body to experience more stress than it’s used to, resulting in various injuries, such as:


A concussion is a form of traumatic brain injury that occurs when your head suddenly hits an object, such as a car windshield. Concussions can cause head pain, dizziness, and trouble with memory and focus.


Whiplash happens when your head moves forward and backward rapidly, like a whip. This movement stretches the muscles and tendons in your neck, causing neck pain, stiffness, and a restricted range of motion.


The force of a car crash can cause your bones to break. Any bone can fracture in an automobile accident, but it most often affects the arms, hands, legs, and feet. Fractures can cause joint pain, swelling, and deformity.

Sprains and strains

Ligament sprains and muscle strains can cause many types of joint pain, including knee pain, shoulder pain, and back and neck pain.

Back injuries

Auto injuries can cause a wide range of problems that lead to back pain, such as herniated discs, spondylolisthesis, sprains, and strains.


A lumbar herniated disc that presses on a nerve can cause sciatica, which is pain that originates in your low back and radiates into other parts of your body. Sciatica can cause low back pain, hip pain, and leg pain.
