Back & Neck Injuries

Car Accident Cases

One of the most common injuries suffered in car accidents are back and neck injuries. When a car is rear-ended, side-swiped or involved in a head-on collision, the driver and passengers are thrown forward or back suddenly and with extreme force. The impact often causes serious bruising, tendon damage, and muscle damage. The spine can be twisted and jolted to such a degree that the victim can suffer serious damage to the vertebrae and disks, sometimes permanent. These injuries are very painful and often require long term rehabilitation.

The victim could be unable to work, or even function normally in life for an extended period of time. As in all back and neck injuries, it can be difficult to predict how long any injured person will take to recover, and some recover more quickly than others. Each case must be evaluated individually to determine how to proceed with a claim for compensation. All medical bills, lost wages, future wage loss and rehabilitation must be included in the claim filed to seek compensation in the form of a settlement.

Whiplash, Neck Injuries and Back Injuries

Neck and back injuries create terrible difficulty in doing even the most common tasks, and many injured individuals can do little other than lie down for a period of time while trying to recover. Sitting, standing, turning the head and other normal motions are often impossible, and the victim will be unable to work for a period of time. Some serious cases will require surgery to attempt to correct a serious back injury. Any such case demands the assistance of a car accident attorney from our firm to assist in resolving the legal matters surrounding a car accident in which a back or neck injury took place.

Even a minor accident can cause serious injuries, and whiplash is no small matter. This is a serious injury and can take many months to resolve. The injured victim often needs extensive rehabilitation to try to resolve the painful condition. Our legal team will seek the maximum possible compensation for damages in car accident injury cases and can protect you from insurance company efforts to reduce your claim amount. Contact a car accident attorney if you have suffered back or neck injuries after a car accident.

 

 

Bicycle vs. Car Accidents

Car Accident Lawyer

Every year over 78,000 bicycle riders and pedestrians are seriously injured in collisions with motor vehicles. The injuries inflicted upon the bicyclists from these accidents are numerous, including broken bones, abrasions, cuts, friction burns, amputation, brain injuries, coma, head trauma, broken teeth, and death.

When a bike rider is struck by the negligent driver of a motor vehicle, it is the responsibility of that driver’s insurance company to pay you compensation for the bills and expenses you will have to pay due to your accident. A  car accident attorney from our firm has many years of experience working with bicycle riders who have been the victim of collisions with cars that weigh much more and travel much faster than the bicycles do. If you are a bicyclist who has suffered serious injuries due to the negligence of a motor vehicle driver, call our firm right away.

Bicycle Riders Have Equal Rights

Many drivers do not believe that bicycle riders have and are protected by the same rights as those afforded to other motor vehicle drivers. For this reason, bicyclists may even appear to be “invisible” to these drivers. Sometimes drivers may simply ignore them. When this occurs, it is more likely there will be a collision between the vehicle driver and the bicycle rider. Of course, when there is a car or truck involved, the bike rider’s injuries will commonly be more severe than if the collision was between two bicycles.

Our firm is dedicated to protecting your rights when negotiating with insurance companies who want to give you less compensation than you are entitled to, and who try to take advantage of your physical pain and emotional state of mind to hurry up and settle your case. Our skilled legal team is committed to protecting your rights and recovering the damages you will need to pay for your medical treatment, lost wages, rehabilitation and other expenses.Contact a  car accident attorney today for a no charge initial consultation.

 

 

Catastrophic Injury Attorney

Catastrophic Injury Cases

If you or a loved one has suffered a catastrophic injury in an accident, contact a  personal Injury attorney immediately for legal advice regarding personal injury compensation. Catastrophic injuries are any injuries that have long-term effects. They typically require extensive medical treatment and care, and can result in permanent disabilities such as paralysis, blindness, loss of hearing and amputations. The expense of a catastrophic injury can be overwhelming, especially when you are already grappling with the pain and emotional trauma of your accident.

Our firm is highly experienced in personal injury cases involving catastrophic injuries. If your accident was caused by someone’s negligence, call us at once to discuss your legal options regarding benefits. We can assist you in filing a claim for monetary damages to cover medical bills, lost wages, pain, suffering, rehabilitation, home care and other costs related to your injuries. Our firm understands the hardships you are facing, and will tenaciously pursue the maximum amount of compensation you may be due.

Catastrophic Injury Lawyer

You may be entitled to benefits if your catastrophic injuries were the result of another individual’s careless or reckless actions. Filing a claim can be a tedious process that often requires the knowledge and expertise of a competent personal injury lawyer. Our firm is adept at compiling medical evidence to support your claim for damages involving catastrophic injuries such as:

Spinal cord damage

Head trauma

Brain injuries

Dismemberment

Back injuries

Neck injuries

Catastrophic injuries are serious, life-altering injuries which typically incur exorbitant medical bills, not to mention the fact that they can cost the injured victim and their family members hundreds of thousands of dollars in time lost from work over the course of the injury. Due to the fact that such injuries bring about extensive losses for the injured, it’s absolutely vital that injury victims do not try to settle their case on their own with the insurance company.

It’s important to note that the insurance company is only interested in their bottom line, and the way they maintain their profit margin is by paying out as little as possible in personal injury claims. Don’t be fooled into believing that your claim isn’t worth much, because this is exactly what the insurance company wants you to be fooled into believing. When a plaintiff accepts a low-ball settlement, the money eventually runs out and they are stuck with having to come up with the difference, which can amount to hundreds of thousands of dollars if not more over time.

We know what to expect from insurance companies when filing a claim, and won’t be deterred by any efforts to dispute the merits of your case. Contact a  catastrophic injury attorney from our firm for sound legal advice regarding your injuries and how to file a compensation claim.

 

 

Brain & Spinal Cord Injuries

Car Accident Injury Cases: Catastrophic Injuries

When a serious car accident occurs, severe injuries including spinal cord injuries and brain injuries are far too common. These injuries are often termed “catastrophic” as the victim will never again have the quality of life that they enjoyed prior to the accident. When another party is responsible for the accident, it is necessary to contact a  car accident lawyer to assist in seeking compensation in these very serious injury cases. At our firm, our car accident lawyer will assist you in managing the lawsuit or claim against the responsible party’s insurance company. If criminal negligence was involved, it may be possible to seek punitive damages beyond medical costs, future medical and nursing care, loss of income, future financial losses and pain and suffering, among others.

Brain & Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer

The outcome of a legal action against the liable party is critical to the future and health of the victim. In very serious brain injury cases, the innocent victim can suffer severe damage and in the worst cases can lose all ability to function in life, and will require nursing care for the rest of their lives. We all hope for miracles in such cases, and as newer treatments are discovered, having the financial ability to access these treatments is only fair when another individual caused the injury.

The same is true of serious spinal injuries, as the victim can suffer terrible loss of ability, either paraplegia or quadriplegia. These conditions change the individual’s life forever. They will face many challenges and changes in lifestyle, as well as physical problems that are part of any spinal injury. Our legal team understands fully how important the outcome of the case is to the health and future of the victim and their families, and acts accordingly. We will seek compensation measured against all the damages suffered in the case, both economic and non-economic. The emotional toll is severe in any such case, and the settlement, verdict or judgment will likely be extremely high. We will fight to ensure that our client gets the compensation that truly reflects the serious nature of these injuries. Contact a car accident attorney if you or a loved one has suffered brain or spinal cord injury through the negligent driving of another person.
