Common Injuries in Car Accident Cases

Car accidents happen every day, and unfortunately many of them result in serious personal injuries. According to the World Health Organization, the lives of approximately 1.35 million people are cut short every year as a result of a road traffic crash. In addition, somewhere between 20 and 50 million more people suffer injuries which are not fatal, with many individuals incurring a disability as a result of their injury. These physical injuries result in significant economic losses to individuals and families due to medical costs associated with treating those injuries and wages lost due to time off during recuperation, physical limitations resulting in temporary or permanent disability, loss of enjoyment of everyday life, or in some cases permanent job loss.

At Whalen Hersh, we have represented many car accident clients over the years and recovered millions for our clients, just take a look at some of our past case results. Our goal in representing you is to establish a direct, meaningful, trusted and reliable relationship and secure a settlement for you that is fair and equitable. If you or a loved one have been injured in a car accident, you may have a legal right to seek financial compensation for your losses. To do this, you’ll need an experienced qualified car accident attorney to properly handle your claim and potential civil lawsuit against the parties responsible for your injuries.

Common injuries in car accident cases include:

  • spinal injuries
  • brain injuries
  • tear and severe laceration injuries
  • torn ligaments
  • broken bones
  • neck and head injuries
  • chest and back injuries
  • facial and eye injuries
  • burns and permanent scarring
  • muscle spasms and uncontrolled chronic pain
  • muscle strains and/or soft tissue injuries
  • internal injuries
  • injury to and/or loss of limb(s) including hands, feet, arms and legs
  • emotional/psychological injuries
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) injuries

Physical injury can often be very serious and sometimes, without proper medical guidance and an experienced attorney, you may not know the full extent of these injuries. Some injuries require at the very least some meaningful physical therapy and care, while other injuries may require surgery, future additional surgeries and treatment, months of physical therapy, and partial to total physical disability. Some injuries may not be apparent immediately after your accident but could manifest in the days, weeks and months to follow, including psychological injury such as fear of driving or riding in a passenger vehicle due to serious emotional trauma caused by a crash.

We understand how devastating injuries suffered in a car accident can be, and we will work closely with you to ensure that you receive the medical attention you need, the support you deserve, and the representation you depend on. When you suffer injury as a result of a car accident you should be free to focus on receiving the treatment you need to recover, not worrying about how to handle the legalities of pursing a claim against the insurance company and responsible party. Insurance companies will often pressure victims to settle quickly, and for far less than what a judge and jury would consider fair. Our firm exclusively represents clients against insurance companies and corporations in personal injury matters. Settling too quickly with an insurance company could mean that your injuries are not properly treated, especially if the effects of your injuries are not immediately apparent, and your future is not protected.
