Car accidents are sudden, shocking, dangerous events that generally cause serious injuries. If someone else’s negligence is responsible for an accident in which you were involved, you have a right to compensation from them or their insurance company.
There are limits on what you can be compensated for: damage to your vehicle and property, your medical care, and sometimes your pain and suffering. Some injuries are painful and debilitating but do not show up on X-rays and are not visible to the eye.
“Soft tissue” injuries including whiplash require therapy such as chiropractic care or massage therapy to reduce pain and other symptoms. You should be compensated for this care. And if your injury is established to be “permanent” you should be compensated for your pain and suffering.
The jarring and impact experienced in
- Car accidents
- Bus accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Boating accidents
- Plane accidents
- And other accidents
cause injuries such as hyperextension flexion injuries that must be taken seriously. Neurological injuries include TMJ or temporomandibular injuries. Difficulty sleeping, and hearing in certain circumstances, reduced attention span, and ringing in the ears are serious conditions that our law firm takes seriously.
