Uneven Pavement Accident Injuries
The sudden loss of traction as one side of a vehicle drops to a lower section of the road, or the disruption of motion that occurs as the wheels abut an elevated portion of the highway can cause panic. They can also cause an accident. Blown tires, broken suspensions, and body damage are common adverse effects on a vehicle, but pale in comparison to the physical injuries that may affect drivers and passengers. Car accident injuries may include:
- Traumatic Brain Injuries
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Bone Fractures
