What are common auto-accident injuries?
Auto-accident injuries are common and can occur even if you’re driving slowly and wearing your seat belt. Some of the most common types of auto-accident injuries include:
- Sprains and strains
- Head injuries

- Cuts and scrapes
Whiplash is a common rear-end auto accident injury that damages the soft tissue in your neck. In addition to pain and stiffness in your neck, whiplash can lead to other symptoms, such as headaches or blurry vision.
You should seek medical help immediately following an auto accident. Even if you don’t think you were injured. In many cases, your pain may be masked by your adrenaline and you may not realize that an injury has occurred.
