Just like people and vehicles, car crashes come in all shapes and sizes. From single-car accidents to multi-vehicle pileups, these incidents have one thing in common – the potential to cause devastating injuries and disrupt the lives of victims in many ways.

After any type of accident, you should call 911 and get emergency medical treatment when necessary. As soon as your physical condition is stable, contact our legal team about your legal options.
Car crashes are traumatic events and, for this reason, often cause traumatic injuries.
Some injuries that are particularly common from car crashes include:
When you call 911 after a crash, they should send both emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and law enforcement officers to the scene. If the EMTs believe you have severe injuries, you might need an ambulance ride to the hospital. If not, you can stay at the scene and ensure that the police get your version of what happened.
Even if you do not need emergency transportation, it is still always wise to get checked out by medical professionals. Going to the emergency room, urgent care, or your physician’s office will make sure that any injuries you have will be diagnosed in a timely fashion. Sometimes, injuries might not be obvious right after the crash, as you might be in shock or think that discomfort is normal to feel. However, getting a diagnosis as soon as you can is critical to not only get the medical treatment you need but also for the purposes of future insurance or legal claim.
If you do have injuries from a car accident, the losses can begin adding up very quickly. Some losses that injured crash victims experience include:
Often, calculating losses can be a complicated task, and you want the help of a trusted legal professional to ensure you do not miss out on any losses when you file your claim.
In addition to your physical recovery, it is important to seek financial recovery for your losses from liable parties. Parties are liable when they acted negligently, and their negligence led to the crash.
