- Head injuries: These can range from a concussion to a traumatic brain injury. They can be difficult to diagnose at first, so getting a medical evaluation after any accident is important.
- Broken bone: A broken bone is common from an accident, including a hand, wrist, foot, or even leg. You most likely will know immediately when something is broken. Do not move until medical personnel helps you.
- Back injury: This type of injury can lead to herniated discs and more serious problems that may require surgery. Be sure to document all medical visits to show progression of an injury after an accident.
