4 Potential Injuries Venice FL Drivers And Passengers Can Get In Crashes

Okay, let’s start by saying these injuries aren’t restricted to only Venice drivers and passengers. Those in Fort Myers, Sarasota, and Bradenton can get them too. Heck, for that matter, others involved in crashes in Florida or other states can as well. Now that all of that is out of the way, it is time to get started. 

Most people try to avoid accidents. For one, the events are usually chaotic and stressful, and folks have enough chaos and stress in their lives. They also know that skin, bones, and organs are no match for crashes. Therefore, nobody wants to get involved in one because they don’t want to get hurt. However, avoiding these events isn’t always in the cards.

Do you want proof? If so, take a peek at these stats. According to the 2019 Traffic Crash Facts from the FLHSMV, there were a total of 401,867 crashes in Florida in 2019. That averages out to 1,101 incidents per day. Thus, these numbers show that not everyone can avoid accidents. As such, injuries can come to fruition. Now, without further ado, let’s discuss four potential injuries that Venice and other drivers/passengers can get in car collisions.

1. Head Injuries

Peoples’ heads get bounced around what feels like in every direction during auto accidents. They can get slammed against steering wheels, windows, and seats. Their foreheads can even hit dashboards on occasion. These jolts and strikes can cause traumatic brain injuries. The issues could be mild concussions, or people might slip into comas. There may not be long-term effects from the injuries. Then again, they could leave folks with lasting cognitive problems.

2. Whiplash

Whiplash is common following car crashes. It occurs when peoples’ heads and necks become jerked back and forth suddenly. Symptoms associated with the issue include but are not limited to…

• Neck Pain And Stiffness
• Headache
• Shoulder Pain
• And Dizziness

The symptoms of whiplash can take 24 to 48-hours to appear. After developing, they could go away quickly. Yet, sometimes, people feel the effects of whiplash for weeks, months, or even years.

3. Soft Tissue Injuries

A person’s back consists of more than just vertebrae. There are muscles, tendons, and ligaments there too. When auto accidents take place, soft tissue injuries can occur. That means tears, strains, or sprains can enter the picture. Such wounds often cause pain and stiffness, but they are also responsible for muscle spasms and tenderness.

4. Broken Bones

Car crashes are violent, and even with modern vehicle safety features, people can break bones. Wrists, legs, ribs, and more, nothing is off-limits. Many times, broken bones have to be reset, which is painful, and patients get put into casts to heal. Meanwhile, in other instances, they need surgeries, and screws, brackets, or braces have to be installed.

Why You Should Contact An Accident Attorney After A Crash

If someone else’s negligence causes your accident and injuries, you might be entitled to fair compensation. The insurance company might try to give you the run-around, though. They could offer you a low-ball settlement and attempt to take advantage of your situation. Insurers even go as far as to refuse payments altogether. 

Don’t fret if these things happen. Instead, contact our firm to get legal representation. Our accident attorneys serve Venice, Sarasota, and other surrounding areas. They will fight tooth and nail to recover the settlement you deserve.
