Whether you’re driving a few short blocks away from your New Hampshire home or you’re enjoying a scenic drive along one of NH’s many mountainous highways, there’s always the potential for an accident to happen.
Moreover, despite recent events, the number of auto accidents and associated injuries seems to be spiking.
The New Hampshire Office of Highway Safety found that the first half of 2020 featured a 70% increase in traffic-related fatalities compared to previous years. This doesn’t even touch on the number of life-changing injuries that can happen in conjunction with an auto accident. In the U.S. alone, nearly 3 million people experience auto accident injuries every year. 2 million of those people experience permanent effects as a result.
What are the injuries that can happen after an NH auto accident—and what can you do to protect yourself and your loved ones from lifelong suffering if the worst does happen?
The specific injuries a driver and passengers may face will depend on the environmental factors (slick roads, irresponsibility of other drivers, weather conditions, etc.) that contribute to their accident. Taking all types of accidents into account, the most common auto injuries include:
• Traumatic brain injuries
• Spinal cord injuries and resultant paralysis
• Internal injury and bleeding
• Broken bones or fractures
• Disfiguring scars
• Amputation or loss of limb
• Whiplash or neck injuries
• Knee, ankle, or foot injuries
• Lacerations, abrasions, or bruises
• Crushed body parts
• Soft tissue injuries
• PTSD or other indications of related trauma
Any of these injuries may require medical attention, ongoing medication, or therapy. This will be expensive, which means that you and your loved ones will require resources to manage rehabilitation for the victim and support for your family.
