Car Accident Injuries

Car accident injuries can be minor, catastrophic, and even fatal. You may notice an injury right away, or it may take some time to become apparent. If you accept an offer of compensation without first talking things over with an attorney, you risk walking away without being fully reimbursed. At the law firm of Dunlap Ravis & Miller in Jacksonville, FL, we have been helping accident victims since 2002. We offer a free initial consultation, and demand maximum recovery for your injuries. We understand how frustrating it is to be hurt by another, and then have to worry about how to pay for the damage done. Let us shoulder that burden for you by taking on your personal injury case and pursuing what you deserve.

Car accidents frequently result in brain and spine injuries, in addition to broken bones and burns.

Common Car Accident Injuries

Depending on the type of accident, victims can suffer a wide range of injuries. Some of the most common car accident injuries include:

  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI): When two vehicles collide, the occupants inside can be thrown about, striking their heads on any number of objects such as the steering wheel, the windshield, a side window, or even each other. This type of forceful impact can cause a concussion or other TBI.
  • Spinal cord damage: A spinal cord injury can cause damage to sensitive nerves, resulting in paralysis.
  • Head and neck injuries: Whiplash, muscle strains, and stiffness are common symptoms of head and neck injuries suffered in car accidents.
  • Broken bones or severed limbs: The possibility of being pinned down or trapped in a car wreck is very real, and can cause victims to break arms or legs, or even lose a limb.
  • Burns and lacerations: Car accident victims often suffer cuts, scratches, or deep lacerations. They can even be burned during a wreck.
  • Hearing and vision loss: Depending on the circumstances, it is possible to sustain temporary or permanent hearing loss and eye injuries that can lead to loss of vision.

It is critical to seek immediate medical attention if you have been in a car accident. You should also talk with an attorney right away, to preserve the evidence and protect your right to demand compensation.

The Impact Of Car Accident Injuries

Car accident injuries can change the quality of victims' lives in many ways:

  • Some car accident victims suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and experience a great deal of emotional pain and suffering from having been in an accident. 
  • Being hurt in a car accident might mean you are not able to go to work for a while, which is why victims are entitled to recover for lost wages, loss of future earnings, and a decrease in earning capacity.
  • Car accident injuries can quickly incur astronomical medial bills.
  • Some injuries may result in the need for a wheelchair or other assistive device. You may also need to modify your home to accommodate these needs. The cost to make these accommodations is something you can demand to be paid by the negligent party.

When we take on your case, we examine all of the facts, establish liability, and demand maximum compensation from the responsible party.
