An Understanding Of Your Injury And How To Document It For Your Case

Injuries can vary greatly across different accidents. There are, however, some common types of injuries incurred from car accidents:

  • Head and brain injuries: Any trauma to the head or brain is serious. Even a mild concussion can spur long-term cognitive issues, chronic pain or headaches, vision damage, hearing damage and more. What makes it more challenging is how many closed head injuries are not immediately visible after an accident, where as open head injuries provide clear evidence that an injury has taken place.
  • Back, neck and spinal cord injuries: A relatively minor rear-end accident can have long-term injury consequences when the sudden jarring motion has caused whiplash, disk herniation and spinal cord issues. We can help you deal with these serious matters whether you were involve in a high-speed accident or a fender bender.
  • Broken bones, scars and disfigurement: Some of the most severe accidents like those that involve multiple vehicles, ejection from a vehicle, rollovers, or high speed collisions can end up with serious issues of crushed bones, internal organ damage, scars, disfigurement, road rash and more. We can help make sure you get compensation for these serious issues.
  • Fatal injuries: Of course nothing is more devastating than the loss of a loved one. A wrongful death claim cannot change what you have lost, but it can help deal with the financial challenges that follow a serious accident. We can help you pursue compensation for medical bills, loss of income, pain and suffering, and more.

Get The Medical Assessments You Need Quickly After An Accident

Documenting your injury is crucial for recovering the compensation you need so make sure you have a medical examination immediately following an accident. Even if you initially "feel fine" you are well-advised to see a doctor and contact an attorney shortly thereafter — particularly before you make statements to insurance companies about your health and well-being.
