An Injury Lawyer Who Understands The Medical Nuances Of Your Case

Our car accident lawyer uses her decade of experience as a Doctor of Chiropractic Medicine to help her advocate for clients throughout the legal process. Having seen and treated common car accident injuries firsthand, she has a unique understanding of the medical side of your case.

Accident victims in California must file a separate property damage claim with the California Department of Motor Vehicles for any motor vehicle accident with damages greater than $1,000. To report your accident, you must file an SR-1 form that describes the accident, damages and provides evidence. Afterward, the other driver’s insurer takes over to negotiate the claim.

After suffering an injury, this process can be overwhelming. We will provide the support and guidance you need to file a successful claim for your injuries and damage to your vehicle. We can also help file a wrongful death claim if your loved one died due to an automotive accident.

What Are The Most Common Car Accident Injuries?

Car accidents lead to more than just a wrecked vehicle. Vehicle occupants can suffer depending on the severity of the collision and other circumstances. Some of the more common injuries you can suffer following an accident include:

  • Head injuries: In a crash, you can suffer head injuries even if there’s an airbag. Your head could hit the side of the car’s interior or the steering wheel despite an airbag deploying. You might suffer some facial injuries such as cuts or bruises, but sufficiently strong impacts can lead to concussions and traumatic brain injury.
  • Neck injuries: One of the more common injuries you can suffer following an accident is whiplash. This occurs when the neck suddenly snaps backward or forward, straining the neck muscles. You can also suffer whiplash if a defective airbag deploys too late.
  • Back injuries: A car wreck can result in spinal cord injuries. These can be alarming since nerve damage can interfere with your movement and sensation, so you might not even immediately feel pain from a spinal cord injury.
  • Chest injuries: The impact of an accident can cause bruising on your chest or broken ribs. While broken ribs can heal, they can puncture blood vessels or organs and cause internal bleeding.
  • Limb injuries: Collisions can break the bones of your limbs or cause dislocations. In the worst cases, a catastrophic crash may also lead to the traumatic amputation of one of your limbs, especially if the impact causes your leg or arm to get caught between crushed parts.
  • Other injuries: You could potentially suffer bruising in other parts of your body due to a vehicular crash. Loose sharp objects and debris also may hit you in an accident, which can cause penetrating injuries.

You might not be immediately aware of all your injuries right after a collision. Even if you can walk away from a crash, you should let emergency responders see to your injuries so that they can evaluate your condition. This will set you on the path to recovery faster and allow you to document any serious injuries for a potential claim.
