Killed or seriously injured
While many local and federal government agencies have worked together to create safer roads and highways, auto collisions are still on the rise. Fortunately, many of these accidents result in minor to moderate injuries, but in other cases, the accident victims are killed or seriously injured, leaving their families and friends devastated and left to pick up the pieces. Accident victims that survive the crash are faced with injuries that can require months, years, or a lifetime of medical treatment, resulting in steep medical bills due to round-the-clock care, multiple surgeries, and other related expenses.

    What Are the Serious Injuries that Can Result in Fatalities?

    Serious injuries resulting from automobile accidents can tragically lead to fatalities. These injuries encompass a range of severe and life-threatening conditions that can have devastating consequences.

    Here are some of the types of serious injuries commonly associated with fatal outcomes:

    Head injuries and Brain damage

    Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) can occur when the head experiences a severe impact or penetration by an object during an accident. These injuries can result in brain swelling, bleeding, or damage to the brain tissue, leading to significant cognitive impairments, coma, or death.

    Internal bleeding & Organ Damage

    The forceful impact during a car accident can cause severe damage to internal organs such as the heart, lungs, liver, spleen, or kidneys. Organ damage can lead to internal bleeding, organ failure, and other life-threatening complications that may result in death.

    Spinal cord injuries

    Accidents involving high impact or sudden jolts can cause severe damage to the spinal cord, leading to paralysis or loss of bodily function. Depending on the level and extent of the injury, victims may experience partial or complete paralysis, impacting their ability to breathe, move, or perform daily activities.

    Severe Fractures

    High-speed collisions or forceful impacts can cause bone fractures that are not only painful but also life-threatening. Fractures near vital organs or major blood vessels may result in significant internal bleeding, infection, or complications that can lead to death.

    Severe Burns

    Car accidents can sometimes lead to fires or explosions, causing severe burns. These burns can cause extensive damage to the skin, underlying tissues, and organs, resulting in infections, respiratory issues, or organ failure that may be fatal.

    Crush injuries

    In accidents involving heavy vehicles or rollovers, victims can sustain crush injuries, where their body is trapped or compressed between objects. These injuries can cause severe damage to organs, muscles, and tissues, leading to internal bleeding, compartment syndrome, or other life-threatening complications.

    Multiple Trauma

    Often, fatal automobile accidents involve multiple injuries occurring simultaneously or in quick succession. The combination of severe injuries, such as head trauma, internal organ damage, fractures, and spinal cord injuries, can overwhelm the body's ability to recover, resulting in a tragic outcome.

    ***It is important to note that the severity and outcome of injuries can vary based on factors such as the speed of the vehicles involved, the point of impact, safety measures used (such as seat belts and airbags), and the overall health and age of the individuals involved.

    Last year I had an accident and my car was totaled. I was very upset and didn't know what to do. A friend told me to call MVP and it was the best decision ever. They got my car paid off very fast, set me up with a doctor, and just last week I got a fat check for my pain and suffering. Thank you MVP!

    MVP Accident Attorneys was the best decision ever made. They helped me through the process and made it stress free for me. It was first accident and i was super stressed because i didn’t know what to do. I called MVP and was treated so kindly by amazing people who went over my accident with me and any questions i had. They have a whole team! I was then helped by attorney and case managers who set me up with treatment so I can get all patched up. Finally, the liens department took care of all my bills and made sure i had nothing to worry about. 11/10 would recommend them to family and friends! You cannot go wrong with MVP
