Common Car Accident Injuries
Our firm advocates for clients who have been in car accidents or falls on commercial property and have suffered physical injuries. Common injuries that occur in such accidents include :
- Soft tissue injuries, including whiplash
- Traumatic brain injuries, including concussions
- Bone fractures
- Knee and other joint injuries
- Neck shoulder and wrist/hand injuries
These injuries will likely require medical treatment, physical therapy, and can often result in substantial medical bills and income or sick paid time off losses. Note that if your employer offers any form of paid time off and your time away from work is medically necessary to recover as certified by a doctor, you can obtain compensation for the use of such leave. It is our goal to help you focus on your recovery while we focus on the legalities.
What Your Car Accident Lawyer Will Do

Our attorneys understand that the insurance companies are rarely, if ever, on your side. Whether you are filing a claim with your insurance or the other party’s insurance company, it is essential that you do not attempt to negotiate with them without legal assistance. The insurance company will try to encourage you to settle for the lowest possible amount because it is their goal to save the company as much money as possible. They will offer a speedy settlement which is typically a small fraction of what you would otherwise gain with a lawyer.
They will use standard defense arguments which typically do not work well for them in court. We will use our best efforts to obtain compensation which will cover your medical(and other related expenses, such as income losses and most importantly, seek fair and reasonable compensation for your pain, suffering, and inconvenience associated with your injuries which have disrupted and interrupted your activities of daily living. These items are the biggest harm in any case.
