Auto Accident Injuries

From whiplash to broken bones, injuries from automobile accidents occur far too frequently.

We make it our mission to provide you and your family with the attention needed to recover the settlement you deserve after an automobile accident.

Common Automobile Accident Injuries

Whiplash: Whiplash occurs most often in rear end collisions. It happens when the muscles in the head and neck move very suddenly due to the impact of the crash. Mild cases may resolve in as little as a few days while more serious cases may result in a spinal fracture.

Head & Brain Injuries: Usually caused by the impact of the head hitting the window or steering wheel, injuries to the head may be mild or severe. They can also be difficult to diagnose, which is why you should seek medical care if you suspect a head injury. Examples of head and brain injuries are traumatic brain injuries (or TBIs), concussions, lacerations (or cuts), skull fractures, and bruises.

Back Injuries: Back injuries are common in automobile accidents and can result in a wide variety of injuries such as herniated discs or in the most severe cases, paralysis. Pain may be life-long and debilitating. Back injuries sustained in an accident may not be obvious immediately which is why a thorough medical exam following an automobile accident is always a good idea.

Broken Bones: Bones break when the force applied to them is so great it is stronger than the actual bone. Forces of this magnitude are common in automobile accidents and lead to broken arms, legs, wrists, ankles, and ribs. Broken bones are painful and are almost always immediately obvious.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): PTSD is a psychiatric disorder that occurs in people that have been involved in or witnessed a terrifying event. Although not a physical injury, it is very real and may occur after an automobile accident.

Preventing Automobile Accident Injuries

Unfortunately, there is not a way to make yourself immune to injuries when riding or driving a vehicle. However, there are preventative steps you can take to help protect you and your passengers in case you are involved in an automobile accident.

    • Do not be a distracted driver – only pay attention to operating your vehicle while driving
    • Ensure you and your passengers are wearing seatbelts, or in the case of children, are in the proper restraint device
    • Conduct routine maintenance on your vehicle to ensure it is in prime condition
    • Obey the speed limit
    • Do not engage in reckless driving
    • Avoid driving during inclement weather when possible
