Types of Crashes in Woodbury MN:

  1. Head on crashes: The main areas of the body that belted passengers suffer injuries are the chest and lower limbs(pelvis, legs and feet), people who did not wear their seatbelts most likely suffer with severe head, neck and facial injuries due to their face hitting the steering wheel/dash board/windshield.
  2. T-Bone/Side crashes: People who are on the struck side of the car will most likely go through a wave of places that are hit due to the door panel, and the other object that hits them. This person may have head, neck, chest injuries all the way down to the lower extremities, not to mention the shock can really irritate if not damage a person's insides. The person on the non-struck side can also experience pain from the shock of the accident due to another person smashing into them, or the object that hit the vehicle in the first place. This person can also go through a full-range of issues as well.
  3. Rear crashes: Most commonly people suffer from whiplash injuries which are where the head and neck are forced forward and backward very quickly. This injury most likely has the person suffering from head, neck, chest and back pain.
  4. Multiple impacts and roll-overs: With these types of crashes it just really depends on what happened in the accident that will cause what kind of injury and or pain. For instance in a rollover with a person not wearing a seatbelt, their body is flown around helplessly in the car which that makes the body very vulnerable to sustain any kind of injury such as fractures, concussions, lacerations, etc.
