Types of Car Accident Cases We Handle

Car Accidents can be divided up into different types, it is important to consult with a lawyer who will be able to protect your rights and work hard to litigate any claims to get you the best outcome possible.

      • Single Car Crashes: When only one vehicle is involved in an auto accident, it is classified as a single car crash. These incidents may involve a driver striking a tree or telephone pole.
      • Fender Benders: Typically not serious, fender benders are auto accidents that can result in property damage rather than injury. It is possible, however, for a driver or passenger to experience whiplash from the wreck.
      • Head-on Collisions: When the front end of one vehicle strikes the front end of another vehicle, a head-on collision occurs. Fatalities or serious injuries are common among head-on collisions, especially when they happen on a highway that has higher than average speed limits.
      • T-Bone Crashes: T-bone car accidents are also known as side-impact collisions and happen when any part of one car strikes the side of another. Damage to the vehicle during this type of auto accident is guaranteed; however, injuries depend on where the car was hit and where the occupants of the vehicle were sitting.

Common Car Accident Injuries

The types of injuries that can happen in a car accident are as various as the cars on the road. However, some of the most common injuries from car accidents that we seek recovery for include:

      • Whiplash. When a vehicle comes to a sudden stop or sharp turn the head can “whip” back and forth, injuring tendons and muscles in the neck. Most whiplash heals with time, but some cases can be more severe.
      • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI). A concussion is a TBI that heals in a short period of time, but often bruising, tearing and other injuries to the brain can cause debilitating problems.
      • Broken bones. The sheer impact and blunt force of car accidents often causes broken bones in the extremities, such as the arms, legs, feet and hands. As people age, broken bones take longer to heal and can cause lasting disabilities.
      • Internal bleeding. The impact from an accident can tear or rupture internal organs, causing internal bleeding that requires surgery, and in worst-case scenarios, is fatal.
      • PTSD. Being involved in an accident can be a scary, stressful and sometimes horrifying experience. As a result, people often suffer from psychological and emotional injuries long after the physical injuries have healed. This can include symptoms like depression, anxiety, stress, and a reduced interest in life.

Medical Bills

As a “No-Fault” state, a driver who is injured in an auto accident will turn to his or her automobile insurance company to pay some or all medical expenses, no matter who is at fault for the accident. In some states, there is a limit to what the insurance company will pay. To get compensation from an at-fault driver, you must qualify for a serious injury and file a lawsuit.

Disputes with Insurance Companies

Insurance companies habitually deny valid claims by manipulating and interpreting the language of your policies. It is important to have a lawyer who is familiar with the laws and policies of your insurance companies, as well as experience working with them for your best interest.
