The most common types of injuries that drivers and passengers sustain in serious auto wrecks are neck and back injuries, as well as contusions on the chest and hips from the seatbelts. A lot of times, there will be prolonged headaches, loss of sleep, anxiety, and depression, which can set in later following an accident.
Sometimes, when someone has sustained neck, back, and hip injuries, there will be fractures in the bones and connective tissue injuries. If ligaments were stretched and/or bones were moved out of place, it can cause the connective tissue to have problems. An accident can result in tightened and pulled muscles on different parts of the body, which can cause various levels of pain.
