Car Accidents are among the top ten causes of death in Austin for all age groups. Of course, you are more likely to be injured in a car accident in the Austin area. Injuries can consist of soft tissue injuries which usually are accompanied by headaches. Many times these headaches are caused by your neck whipping forward and then violently slamming into the headrest. More severe injuries can included bulging discs, herniated discs, disc extrusions broken bones, loss of consciousness, short term and long term memory loss, severe brain injuries, internal injuries such as punctured organs, facial fractures, and almost always some form of psychological trauma.
