A major car crash might lead to several significant injuries

As you set out on your weekday journey, you review your important responsibilities and tasks for the day. Suddenly, though, you hear a huge bang, and you immediately feel pain. It does not take long for you to realize that an allegedly negligent driver has struck your car. Now, your agenda for the day looks quite different from before.

Fortunately, if you have suffered serious injuries in a car accident stemming from another motorist's carelessness, it is within your rights to seek compensation for your injuries. Here is a glimpse at some common injuries you may suffer in a major crash in California.

Injuries to the back

Injuries to the back are not uncommon in motor vehicle collisions. Damage to the spinal cord might result in serious damage to your nerve. Indicators of this kind of damage include having less control over various parts of your body, including your arms, feet, legs and hands. In addition, you might feel pain in your arm or leg, muscle weakness, or numb and tingling sensations if you have a herniated disk.

Injuries to the head

These are among the most serious injuries that a motor vehicle wreck may cause. You can suffer these kinds of injuries if your head hits a steering wheel, window or dashboard. If you end up suffering traumatic injury to the brain, you will need extensive treatment and long-term care to recover from your injuries.

Injuries to the chest

Your accident might also cause you to suffer broken ribs or collapsed lungs. You may additionally experience internal bleeding in the chest area, along with internal organ or abdomen damage. These issues require immediate medical attention.

Your rights following an injury-causing car wreck

If you have suffered major injuries due to an allegedly negligent driver's actions, you may seek financial damages through a personal injury lawsuit. You must establish liability, based upon a showing of negligence, before the court will determine claims for damages.

If you succeed in your claim, you may receive a judicial award of damages that might help with addressing your medical expenses and other accident-related losses. The award may also help with addressing emotional distress and pain and suffering resulting from the crash. Compensation cannot eliminate the effects of the accident, but it might make it easier for you to move on from it.
