Car Accident Injuries
Injured in a Collision? Get Help from an Experienced Tallahassee Car Accident Lawyer
Car accidents are dangerous. Serious accidents can cause life-altering physical and emotional trauma, and even relatively minor accidents can cause injuries that lead to expensive medical bills and time missed from work. The good news is that accident victims can recover just compensation for their injuries in many cases, and they can hire a Tallahassee car accident lawyer to help them at no out-of-pocket cost.
Our lawyers represent car accident victims who have suffered all types of injuries. If you were injured in a collision, you are minimally entitled to personal injury protection (PIP) compensation (as long as you have this coverage). However, if someone else was at fault in the accident, you could be entitled to far more. Our lawyers can determine who was at fault, and we can calculate the long-term costs of your injuries so that you don’t settle for less than you deserve.
We Handle All Types of Car Accident Injury Claims in Tallahassee
We handle car accident cases involving all types of injuries. This includes (but is not limited to) common injuries such as:
Back and Neck Injuries
Back and neck injuries are extremely common in car accidents. Lower back pain is one of the most common symptoms experienced by car accident victims, and whiplash is a common (and painful) injury as well. The severity of these injuries can vary widely, with car accident victims facing the risk of paralysis and other permanent effects in some cases.
Broken and Dislocated Bones
Broken and dislocated bones can occur throughout the body. We regularly represent car accident victims who have suffered fractures and dislocations. While wearing a cast or resetting the bone can be enough in some cases, sometimes surgery will be necessary.
Car accidents also frequently result in burns. Drivers and passengers alike can suffer burns due to fires, friction (including friction from seatbelts), and airbag deployment. Burn injuries also vary widely in terms of their severity, and severe burns can require multiple surgical procedures over an extended period of time.
Concussions are the most common form of traumatic brain injury (TBI) sustained in car accidents. While they are on the “mild” end of the spectrum of TBI, concussions can still have serious, long-term, and expensive consequences.
Drivers and passengers involved in car accidents regularly suffer facial injuries. These include lacerations and punctures, burns, eye injuries, nose injuries, and jaw fractures (among others).
Internal injuries are dangerous because they can have serious complications and they aren’t always immediately apparent. Common internal injuries sustained in car accidents include:
- Bowel and bladder complications
- Collapsed lungs
- Internal bleeding
- Liver and kidney damage
- Stomach and intestinal injuries
Soft Tissue Injuries (Sprains, Strains and Tears)
We also regularly represent car accident victims who have suffered sprains, strains and tears. While these injuries will often (but not always) heal on their own, getting adequate rest is important, and long-term physical therapy and rehabilitation may be necessary.
