DO NOT TALK TO AN INSURANCE ADJUSTER UNTIL YOU TALK TO ONE OF OUR ATTORNEYS!! Anything you say WILL hurt your case!
Injuries from an auto accident need not be catastrophic or life-threatening for you to recover financial compensation through civil litigation. Many cases involve only soft tissue injury, such as whip lash injuries or sprains.
The primary reason injured people hire lawyers is because insurance companies generally do not compensate a person for the full extent of their loss. Even “minor” injuries such as a sprain or sore neck/back can cause extreme pain and discomfort, and cost you time, lost wages and all those deductibles from your own medical insurance.
Every car accident has the potential to cause multiple injuries, often more than a single injury from the incident. Our personal injury attorneys have handled the following auto accident related claims:
Whiplash – Occurs when your body is violently shaken in a crash. This is common when a car slams into the rear of your vehicle and your neck is whipped backward. Too often, victims of whiplash fail to seek medical attention because they assume the injury and pain is temporary. The truth is that some whiplash injuries get worse over time and can turn into chronic neck or back pain.
Head injuries – Serious head injuries can happen when drivers or passengers slam their heads into the windshield, dashboard or side doors or windows. Some head injuries even occur without contact with a surface. Violent jerking or shaking of the head can cause the brain to smack the inside of the skull causing brain damage. Anyone who thinks they have sustained a head injury should contact a physician at once. Symptoms include: headaches, confusion, blurred vision, and nausea, memory loss, loss of physical and mental abilities, and even paralysis.
Bone fractures – Common in serious auto accidents are bone or multiple bone fractures. Accident victims who sustain multiple injuries such as leg and hip fractures could face months of rehabilitation and even suffered reduced mobility for life.
Sprains and strains – Just as painful as broken bones, sprains of ankles or wrists or strains of major muscle groups can cause victims loss of mobility even to the point that they are unable to type at a computer. These nagging injuries can keep victims away from work and the daily chores of life at home.
