It is easy to dismiss a bruise or an ache as a minor injury in a car crash or other vehicle collision. Doing so, however, can mean real injuries are not diagnosed and treated as soon as they should be. In the event of a car accident, attending to any injury should be done as soon as possible.
An auto accident victim can easily sustain a neck injury from whiplash even in a low-impact car accident. As a result, a victim can incur significant medical expenses and potentially lose wages because of the injury. Where injuries are obviously more severe, the long-term consequences of broken bones, spinal injuries and head trauma may not be evident for weeks or months. Regardless of the situation, our law firm will stand with a victim to seek justice and compensation to meet his or her financial needs.
Some auto accidents are simple, but others are complex. Negligence – whether from drunken driving, distracted driving or failure to observe traffic regulations – needs to be established. Our law firm, however, has extensive experience with all kinds of car accident cases. If an accident was caused by an underinsured or uninsured driver, we will work to identify other potential sources of recovery.
We believe there are no minor injuries when it comes to car accidents, just as we believe there are no minor legal cases. We work to make sure victims get what they truly deserve, not just to meet the needs of their recovery but also to compensate them for lost income, pain and suffering, and diminished enjoyment of life.
