Traffic accidents are a leading cause of injuries in Georgia. Common accident injuries are broken bones, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and neck and back injuries. Others are knee injuries, soft tissue injuries, cuts, lacerations, internal injuries, etc.
While some of these wounds are minor, others are severe or catastrophic, with life-altering consequences. For example, spinal cord injuries may cause partial or permanent paralysis. In such an instance, the victim will require life-long medical care.
However, it’s possible to prevent the catastrophic consequences of an accident. This largely depends on the type of treatment the victim gets immediately after the collision. Most people get emergency treatment immediately after the accident. While this is good, you should request a transfer to an injury center.
