What are common injuries for different crashes?

As a driver in Tennessee, you understand that there are plenty of risks to sharing the road with other cars. Crashes are a major risk, and each type of crash comes with its own set of common injuries. At the Law Offices of Seaton & Bates, PLLC, we're here to help illuminate the differences.

First, we'll look at three of the main types of collisions: T-bone, rear-end, and head-on. T-bone crashes occur when one car hits the side of another straight-on, making a "T" shape. Head-on crashes are, as the name implies, crashes that happen when two cars going in opposite directions run directly into each other. Finally, rear-end collisions happen when one car hits another from behind.

One of the most common injuries with rear-end crashes is whiplash. This is due to the force of the crash pushing a person forward, causing their head to snap back in a "whip-like" motion. T-bone collisions can result in something similar.

Head-on collisions are considered among the most dangerous because your speed is amplified by the speed the other car is driving at. Common injuries include broken bones, crush injuries, and the possibility of head injury or concussion, especially if you aren't wearing a seat belt.

If you have been involved in a crash of any kind, you'll likely be dealing with injuries in both the short and long term. For this reason, you may benefit from the aid of a legal expert.
