3 Types of Serious New York Rollover Accident Injuries

Any car accident can be scary, but most rollover accidents are outright terrifying. There is nothing you can do at that moment of the accident to protect yourself from significant injury, and there is nothing you can do after the crash to change what has happened. However, in order to get the medical care you need for your physical recovery and the legal assistance you need to make a potential financial recovery, it is important to understand common injuries that follow rollover accidents and to know how to contact a New York accident attorney.

New York Rollover Accident Injuries

Three of the most significant types of rollover accident injuries include:
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries: A traumatic brain injury (or TBI) can occur when there is a sudden movement that causes the brain to hit the skull or when something penetrates the brain. Some TBIs are minor, while others may result in permanent brain damage or death.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries: The extent of a spinal cord injury depends on where on the spinal cord the injury occurred. Permanent paralysis and life threatening damage can result from spinal cord injuries.
  • Amputation: If a limb is badly damaged in the accident then the amputation of a hand, foot, arm, or leg may be necessary.

Of course, you should also be alert to other potential injuries including broken bones, back injuries and internal injuries. Additionally, it is important to remember that some rollover accident victims do not survive their injuries. If your loved one died in a New York rollover then it is important to contact a New York car accident attorney to discuss your rights.
