  • Broken bones: these can vary from small breaks on fingers or toes that serve more as a distraction than anything, to painful shattered bones that necessitate extended rehab and physical therapy.
  • Whiplash: this is a condition that most commonly occurs in car accidents, and happens when a sudden force or change in direction forces muscles and soft tissue to move faster than they would in normal conditions.
  • Cuts and scrapes: while many people consider these minor injuries, these can potentially cause infection if not adequately cared for.
  • Traumatic brain injuries: the speed and sudden impact of falls or auto accidents often results in concussions or other head injuries. If not dealt with properly, TBIs can lower brain function and potentially present insomnia and constant headaches. Most accident victims are not aware of the likelihood that they could have sustained a TBI, and thus do not get treatment until it is too late.
