Preventing some common motor vehicle accident injuries

Many people in Nebraska suffer serious personal injuries as a result of being involved in car accidents every year. While some accidents are unavoidable, people can take preventative measures to lessen their likelihood of sustaining the most common types of injuries that can occur in an accident.

Commonly occurring car accident injuries include face and head injuries, brain injuries, neck injuries, back injuries and leg, feet and knee injuries. By using safety belts every time a person rides in a car, the chance of sustaining face and head injuries that can result from flying into a windshield or another part of the car can be reduced. People may also help protect their head and face by shield them with their hands and arms.

Choosing a vehicle with good side and front airbags can help lessen the chance of suffering a brain injury. People can prevent neck injuries from whiplash by ensuring their headrests are adjusted to the correct position to prevent their neck from hyperextending. Seat belts and other types of restraint systems can also help reduce the risk of back injuries by securely holding the person in place. Finally, when people are riding in a car, keeping their legs together instead of positioned in an awkward manner can reduce the risk of lower extremity injuries.

Many people suffer serious personal injuries in car accidents every year. Taking preventative measures and always using safety belts are important in reducing the severity of an injury in the event an accident occurs. A person who has been seriously injured in an accident caused by the actions of another driver may be able to seek compensation for the resulting economic and non-economic losses by filing a personal injury lawsuit.
