Types of Car Accident Injuries that Justify Legal Claims

 

Please note that every injury is valid. Even a minor injury can have a major impact, so do not hesitate to contact us for more information.

 

Here are some common car accident injuries that we often deal with as personal injury lawyers.

 

Whiplash

 

Whiplash is a type of neck injury caused by a sudden jolt or force through the muscles and tissue. In an incident as extreme as a car collision, it is very common for the body to be thrown around. The force can be too much to handle- even when wearing a seatbelt. One of the most vulnerable parts of the body is the neck.

 

When a car hits another object or vehicle, the head is often snapped forward very quickly- which can lead to damaged ligaments, nerves, and even vertebrae in the neck. This is known as whiplash or CAD trauma.

 

How do you know if you have whiplash? Here are some of the common symptoms:

 

  • Spasms in the neck
  • Inability to turn your head or bend your neck
  • Headaches
  • Struggling to concentrate
  • Feeling dizzy
  • Spreading pain through the shoulders and arms

 

Any pain in your neck after an accident should be assessed by a medical professional immediately, as it could be something potentially life-changing or life-threatening. An accurate diagnosis is essential for peace of mind and can also help your case.

 

Whiplash is often downplayed as an insignificant injury, but we understand how this sometimes long-lasting pain can impact your quality of life. We do not stop fighting your corner against insurance companies who try to lowball their offers.

 

Head Trauma

 

Car crashes cause more head injuries than any other accident. A person’s entire world can change in an instant if they sustain a head trauma- with the possibility of life-long disability.

 

Our legal team understands all the ways a head injury can impact a person’s existence. Excruciating medical bills, loss of freedom, inability to work, and significant pain are just some of the possible effects. If the damage leads to a traumatic brain injury, the victim and their family face a whole new road ahead.

 

If you or a loved one suffered a head injury in a car accident- don’t struggle alone. Contact our legal team and let us help on the journey in all the ways we can.

 

  • We hold negligent parties accountable for their actions.
  • Reckless driving that causes an injury like this does not get ignored when we are on the case.
  • Our dedicated experts explore every detail of the incident to paint a full picture.
  • Nothing less than the compensation you and your family deserve is good enough for our team.

 

Back Injuries

 

Back injuries can be debilitating on a large scale. Extreme cases can lead to life-long paralysis- but even minor back damage can leave a person in pain for years. Some of the back injuries we see the most amongst car accident victims include:

 

  • Compression fractures
  • Herniated or ruptured discs
  • Spinal fractures
  • Lumbar ligament damage
  • Hemiparesis (one side of the body weakened)
  • Hemiplegia (one side of the body with signs of paralysis)
  • Total or partial paralysis

 

Many back injuries require long stints of rehabilitation and therapy- which not only cost a fortune but interfere with a person’s ability to work and earn. If the damage is significant, the possibility of returning to work may be extremely delayed or even rendered impossible.

 

Piling bills and worries about the future can snowball quickly, but don’t get buried! Speak to one of our determined and aggressive lawyers who can fight against insurance companies that may try to take advantage of your vulnerable situation. We can also advise on all your compensation options based on the severity of your injury.

 

Internal Injuries

 

Internal injuries can be fatal- even if the person looks fine. Always seek medical assistance after a car accident to rule out the possibility of internal bleeding or organ damage.

 

Fractured ribs and punctured lungs are also common internal injuries caused by car accidents, and they can leave a person in serious pain- or worse. Even with treatment, all the above-mentioned injuries can have a lasting impact on mobility, strength, and endurance.

 

What does that mean for victims? Again, their earning potential and quality of life can be diminished temporarily or long-term- which is why it is essential to speak to us as soon as possible.

 

Injuries to Arms and Legs

 

Our arms and legs are vulnerable in high-impact collisions such as car crashes. They are often the first body parts to take a hit, and the damage can sit anywhere on a vast scale of severity. Some possibilities include:

 

  • Soft Tissue Damage
  • Broken Bones
  • Dislocations
  • Torn ligaments
  • Amputations

 

Broken, dislocated, or muscle-damaged arms, legs, and shoulders can be extremely painful and interfere with a person’s life for weeks, months, or even years. If someone caused those injuries through negligent driving, they should be held accountable- even if you don’t think it’s a big deal. Even soft-tissue damage can interfere with your life for a while, so never underestimate what your suffering is worth.

 

On the other end of the scale, amputations are life-changing. Losing a limb affects everything about the way a person lives, and it can also have a severe impact on their mental health. Dealing with an amputation and the changes that come with it is easier with the financial support owed to you as a victim.

 

We understand how traumatic this type of injury can be, and we are here to support you however we can. The best way we do that is by fighting your case with every ounce of passion we have. Our experience handling these delicate cases makes us the perfect choice of injury lawyer for amputees.
