Types of Injury Cases

Car accident injuries can range from minor to severe, as well as result in short-term or long-term disability. It is important to seek medical attention as soon as possible after car accidents for treatment and documentation of the injury, which helps attorneys substantiate that the injury resulted from the accident. When someone else is at fault for causing your injury, we can help you establish the injury cause and recover compensation.

Motor vehicle accidents result in common injuries:

Whiplash. Whiplash is a very common car crash soft tissue injury affecting the muscles, ligaments and joints in the neck and other spinal areas. It may not be readily apparent for several hours or even several days. Some people recover from whiplash quickly within a few days, others take weeks and, in extreme cases, people take several years before experiencing a full recovery.
People suffer back pain, numbness, tingling, and extreme pain when nerve damage occurs.
Spinal cord injury (SCI). SCI is a severe type of personal injury that can result in paralysis. Paraplegia refers to paralysis from the waist down, and quadriplegia refers to paralysis starting from the neck and extending throughout the rest of the body.
Other serious injuries arising from vehicle collisions are compound or complex fractures, internal bleeding and permanent scarring or disfigurement.
