Serious types of car accident injuries that can limit mobility

On Behalf of | Jan 25, 2024 | Car Accidents

Serious car accidents can have profound and lasting effects on individuals. One repercussion can be a lack of mobility.

This can have direct effects on a person’s ability to work, socialize, travel and do many other things.

Traumatic brain injuries

Traumatic brain injuries can lead to cognitive impairments and difficulties in motor skills, affecting an individual’s ability to move freely. In New York City, where pedestrians and motorists navigate crowded areas, the repercussions of TBIs can be particularly challenging.

Spinal cord injuries

Accidents often result in spinal cord injuries, which can have a profound impact on mobility. The spinal cord plays an important role in transmitting signals between the brain and the rest of the body. When an injury disrupts this communication, it can lead to paralysis or limited mobility, significantly altering a person’s life.

Multiple fractures

Car accidents frequently result in multiple fractures, affecting various parts of the body. For example, broken limbs may make movement painful and restricted. The inability to move freely can be emotionally and practically devastating.

Internal injuries

Internal injuries, though not immediately visible, can have serious consequences for mobility. Damage to internal organs can lead to complications that may require prolonged medical attention and rehabilitation.

Chronic pain

Serious car accidents often result in chronic pain conditions that persist long after the initial injuries heal. Chronic pain can greatly limit mobility, making it difficult for individuals to engage in many types of activities.

People can face immense mobility challenges after a car accident. Understanding these potential limitations is important.
