Cranial / Facial
  These are injuries to the head, usually the skull and face. These injuries can be very serious and even disfiguring. These injuries can include neurological or traumatic brain injury (TBI) which can result in physical impairment or cognitive difficulties. One important type of head injury to be especially concerned about is a closed head injury (CHI) This is any injury to the head that does not penetrate the skull. CHIs are usually caused by blows to the head and frequently can occur in car accidents.

Vertebral  These are injuries to your back and spine, and can result in nerve damage, chronic pain, paralysis, paraplegia or quadriplegia.

Thoracic  These are injuries to your chest and lungs which can result in chronic pain, impaired breathing and loss of physical endurance and strength.

Musculature  These are injuries to your muscles, sometimes referred to as soft tissue injuries. These can typically occur in your arms, legs, chest, back and neck. The most common musculature injury in motor vehicle accidents is “whiplash,” a severe injury to the superficial and deep groups of muscles in the neck.

Whiplash  Cervical acceleration/deceleration (CAD) trauma (commonly known as Whiplash) is most common in rear-end impact accident when the head snaps backward following the forward jolt of the initial impact. Although this type of injury does not usually result in significantly disability, it can result in chronic or recurring aches, pains or stiffness which will affect your long term quality of life.

Kaiotic (from Greek: burn)  Burn injuries are often very painful and are categorized by their severity. Injury to the top layer of skin (the epidermis) is called a superficial burn (formerly called a first degree burn). Injury to the second layer of skin (the dermis) is now called a partial thickness or dermal injury (formerly called a second degree burn). An injury that extends down to the third layer (the subcutaneous tissue, which includes fat) is called a full thickness injury (formerly called a third degree burn). Burns that damage muscles underneath the subcutaneous skin layer are described as full thickness burns with injury to the underlying muscle (sometimes formerly called fourth degree burns).

Skeletal  These are injuries to your bones and joints, usually involving severe breaks or dislocations.
