When a car accident impacts your life,

we fight for the outcome you deserve.

If you’ve been injured in a car accident, you undoubtedly have many questions. You may be wondering if you have a personal injury claim and, if so, what that claim is worth. It’s important to remember that even if you think your injury is of a minor nature, it may not be. The type of injuries resulting from car accidents often don’t manifest until some time after the crash. That’s why it’s important to see a doctor immediately following the accident. If you don’t, and injuries later manifest, the insurance companies involved may dispute your claim even though you are in pain.

If you’ve been in a car accident and were injured, you may be entitled to benefits and compensation under the law. These benefits and compensations can cover the cost of medical treatments, lost income, pain and suffering, and other losses you experience due to your injury.

Types of Car Accident Injuries

There is a long list of injuries that can be caused by a car accident, but these injuries aren’t always immediately apparent or visible following the collision. Certain injuries like neck or back damage may not show themselves for days or weeks, and certain injuries cannot be detected by x-rays.

If a car accident you were involved in has resulted in any of the injuries seen here, you may be entitled to compensation. Even if you don’t see your injury listed, you may still be entitled to compensatory benefits.
