Distracted driving is the number one cause of car accidents in the United States—texting, talking to other passengers, and eating, to name a few examples. The most common types of car accidents due to reckless and careless driving include:
- Rear-end collisions
- Intersection crashes
- Angle accidents
- Single vehicle crashes
- Head-on collisions
Car accidents are one of the primary causes of personal injuries. If you are suffering from an accident-related injury, contact our attorneys to discuss the possible value of your car accident and if you have a personal injury claim.
What Are Common Car Accident Injuries?
Car accident injuries vary depending on the angle and impact of the crash. There are head-on collisions, sideswipes, and T-bone crashes, to name a few. Shattering glass, loose objects, and vehicle impact can cause some of the common types of car accident injuries, including:
- Soft tissue injuries
- Scrapes and cuts
- Head injuries and car accidents
- Chest injuries
- Arm and leg injuries
Physical symptoms might include headaches, neck and shoulder pain, bruising or numbness, and tingling. Some car accidents cause nominal injuries, while more severe accidents can result in disfigurement, disability, and wrongful death in extreme situations.
What Are Side Effects of a Car Accident?
Motorcycle, commercial truck, or automobile accidents are scary, stressful, and traumatic, especially as they’re often unexpected.
Most people think of physical side effects of a car accident, such as bruises, bumps, scrapes, and broken bones. Two types of side effects—physical and mental— can impact a driver and victims of an accident before, during, and long after an accident.
Some people can experience post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), extreme anxiety, depression, and debilitating phobias related to driving. In some car accident cases, an attorney might seek compensation for non-economic losses related to emotional or mental pain and suffering, which judges are open to considering in Nevada.
