What are the most common car accident injuries in San Diego?
Every car accident has its specifics, and there are numerous types of accidents as well. The resulting injuries are no less diverse.
Sometimes, the injury is immediately apparent: a bone is fractured, there is facial disfigurement, or partial or complete paralysis follows from spinal cord damage. Other times, the injury is "hidden" for weeks on end, as with whiplash and certain types of brain injuries. This highlights how crucial it is to get a post-accident medical exam regardless of whether you believe yourself to have been injured.
Some of the most common kinds of car injuries that occur in the San Diego area are:
- Head trauma: If, following the accident, you experience severe headaches, vision impairment, memory loss, and disorientation, you may have sustained a concussion or traumatic brain injury. SUV roll-overs are especially prone to produce this kind of injury.
- Nerve damage: If you have lost mobility in your arms and legs (or elsewhere) or have had it diminished, you likely suffered nervous system damage. It may be a pinched nerve or damaged peripheral or radial nerves.
- Spinal cord problems: A car or truck accident may leave a victim paraplegic or quadriplegic after the spinal cord has been compressed, dislocated, or fractured.
- Neck/back injury: Whiplash may begin weeks after an accident and gradually increase in severity. It can cause shots of pain in your neck, back, and legs. It can also lead to weakened muscles and a "tingling" sensation in your limbs.

Sometimes, victims feel reluctant to contact a lawyer, hoping that the at-fault party and his insurance company will voluntarily offer a fair settlement. This seldom happens. Other times, accident victims think they can win in court or negotiate with insurers without access to an expert car and truck accident lawyer. This is highly unlikely, given the complexity of the law and the lack of leverage that lack of a lawyer signals.
