Some of the most common types of motor vehicle accident claims include:
- Car accidents

- Hit and run accidents
- Accidents caused by uninsured or underinsured motorists
- Drunk driving accidents

Common Injuries Sustained In Motor Vehicle Accidents
From whiplash to brain injuries, the severity of injuries sustained in motor vehicle accidents varies widely. Some of the most common injuries our car accident lawyers often encounter include:
Neck injuries: Although neck injuries often occur when a vehicle is rear-ended, they can happen in any motor vehicle accident. Ligaments, muscles, and discs in the neck can be strained or damaged when the head and neck are quickly jerked back and forth. These types of injuries can be excruciating and lead to headaches, vision problems, and a very limited range of motion in the neck.
Back and spinal injuries: Injured victims may suffer muscle sprains and strains, herniated discs, fractured vertebrae, or paralysis. The pain and immobility of back injuries can often make it difficult to perform daily tasks and may require costly surgeries, medications, rehabilitation, and ongoing long-term care.
Brain injuries: When an occupant of a motor vehicle hits their head on the steering wheel, windshield, window, or other areas, severe head trauma can occur. Traumatic brain injury is a very serious condition that can have a permanent impact on your cognitive skills, mental health, and overall health. Symptoms of TBI may not appear right away, so it’s critical to seek medical attention immediately and contact a car accident lawyer following an injury.
Broken bones: Fractures are common in both serious and minor motor vehicle collisions. Severe fractures may require multiple surgeries, physical therapy, and other medical care. Not only that, injuries like crushed bones or broken ribs can cause other internal damage, such as a punctured lung.
Scarring: Lacerations and burns can cause scarring, nerve damage, and disfigurement. Facial scars or disfigurement can have a significant impact on a victim’s confidence, self-esteem, and quality of life.
Amputation: Losing a limb, hand, foot, or digits is a life-altering experience. Most people who suffer from the traumatic amputation of an arm or leg must learn how to live with a prosthetic limb. Our car accident attorneys understand the financial and emotional costs of these types of injuries. We know how to accurately value your claim to ensure you get the long-term treatment and prostheses you need.
