This is a Time for Compassion
Whether you have a minor injury or a very serious injury, you are going through a very difficult time. If you are looking for a personal injury lawyer, you should know that some personal injury lawyers handle many different types of personal injury cases. My law firm only handles traffic accident cases. I am very familiar with the stresses and struggles that you are now facing. I am here to listen to your concerns and walk you through this very difficult time.
Victims of traffic accidents suffer from a wide range of injuries. Common injuries include:
- Whiplash or neck strain/sprain
- Back strain/sprain
- Fractured bones
- Rotator cuff tears
- Bulging and herniated discs
- Tibial plateau fractures
- MCL/ACL tears
- Traumatic brain injuries
Below is a graph that very briefly explains one of the serious neck surgeries that can be caused by a car accident. Neck pain after a car accident will resolve in weeks or months for some people. Unfortunately, not everyone is lucky enough to heal that quickly. If disc material in the spine is damaged, it will not heal like a strain of a muscle or ligament. The damage to the disc is probably permanent and might require a serious, life-altering surgery, like the surgery described below.
Rotator cuff tears are another common injury suffered by people who are hurt in traffic accidents. The shoulder joint is a complex joint that uses bone, cartilage, muscles, tendons, and ligaments to function properly. When a person’s hands are holding a steering wheel and their body is then forcefully thrown forward, multiple parts of the shoulder joint can become damaged.
Insurance companies will sometimes attempt to argue that a surgery was going to be needed in the future anyways, due to pre-existing conditions. If you didn’t have any significant problems before the traffic accident, don’t let them lead you into thinking that they aren’t responsible for paying for the surgery.
Recover What You Lost
Sadly, you may never get your health back to the way that it was before the accident happened. However, there are other losses that you can claim and that you should recover at the end of your case, such as:
- Past and future medical bills
- Past and future paychecks
- Diminished property value
- Loss of enjoying time with family and friends
- Permanent scarring
- Physical and emotional strain
