Car Accidents Result in Severe Injuries in Chillicothe and throughout Southeastern Ohio

There are a number of reasons car collisions occur, including distracted driving (texting and cell phone use), DWI/DUI, reckless driving, speeding, weaving, failure to yield to oncoming traffic and even simple driver fatigue (falling asleep at the wheel). All of these behaviors can result in rear-end collisions, head-on collisions, sideswipes, etc.

Unfortunately, most serious motor vehicle accidents cause severe injuries to drivers and passengers of all vehicles involved. Often, pedestrians and bicyclists get hurt. Property damage costs are exorbitant. Common injuries sustained in auto accidents include:

It’s not unusual, except in the most serious of accidents, for victims to say they feel fine and weren’t injured. Serious injuries can be masked by stress, shock and an adrenaline rush that happens just after an accident. The truth is, an accident victim can walk away from the crash and feel the effects hours or even days afterward. Don’t hesitate to get checked out by a doctor after an accident. And, if you feel sick — nauseated, headaches, blurry vision, etc. in the days after your crash — see a doctor again.
