Unfortunately, life-changing injuries happen all too often in events as common as car crashes or ordinary falls. Traumatic brain injuries can result from direct impacts to the head in these accidents, and they can affect behavior as well as bodily functions. Like brain injuries, spinal cord injuries are common in motorcycle accidents and can lead to many forms of physical incapacity, such as paralysis.
Broken bones may seem like a less severe type of harm than brain trauma, but not every fracture heals quickly or completely. Moreover, broken bones—especially compound fractures—can be extremely painful, and they can lead to permanent disability or disfigurement. In particular, severe fracture injuries in children must heal properly, or they may lead to lifelong physical impairments.
Serious burn injuries can result from fires, chemicals, or electronic devices. Burn injuries are immensely painful and often leave permanent scars or permanent physical incapacity. Recovery is often difficult and long and may require several bouts of surgery.
Unlike broken bones or burns, soft tissue injuries are not always apparent. A typical example is whiplash, but others include strains, sprains, contusions, or stress injuries. Some of these injuries may not manifest themselves until hours or even days after an accident. If they are not treated promptly and properly, they can lead to more serious or chronic pain, injury, or discomfort.
