If you were involved in a car wreck, it's likely that you sustained an injury, no matter how minor your crash seemed.
The attorneys at Farrow & Pulice often see crash victims sustain whiplash, concussions, bone fractures and soft tissue injuries in crashes. These injuries often disrupt peoples' ability to work and engage in daily activities, and recovery typically takes a few months with the right treatment. In many cases, people who sustain these types of injuries don't immediately realize that they've been injured. They may later experience headaches, dizziness, fatigue, and aches and pains in the affected area. Or they may learn that they have sustained an injury while getting medical attention.
What about crash victims who are involved in high-speed crashes, truck crashes, rollovers, pedestrian and bicyclist accidents or other serious accidents? Our attorneys discuss how catastrophic crashes can change the lives of crash victims and their families. If you or a loved one was severely injured in a crash, an experienced car accident attorney can help you deal with the insurance companies and maximize your compensation.
Severe injuries are often life-changing
In some cases, crash victims sustain severe injuries that require immediate emergency medical care. Someone who survives a catastrophic crash may not be able to recall what happened. They may experience intense shock and trauma immediately after a crash, before they are taken to the nearest emergency room by ambulance. We often see this with:
- Severe traumatic brain injuries
- Severe bone fractures or shattered bones
- Loss of a body part
- Piercing injury that damages an internal organ
- Severe spinal injuries, such as quadriplegia, paraplegia and paralysis
- Serious burns
- Loss of eyesight
- Deep, life-threatening lacerations
- Profuse bleeding or loss of blood
- Facial injuries and disfigurement
These types of injuries are often life-changing and require lengthy and costly medical care. Crash victims who sustain severe injuries often need to undergo life-saving and corrective surgery, as well as several months (possibly years) of physical therapy and rehabilitation. Some crash victims never make a full recovery. They can never perform the same job duties or activities they did prior to their crash.
What to do after a catastrophic crash
If you were involved in a catastrophic accident, you're likely faced with medical expenses while you're out of work and unable to collect a paycheck. To make matters worse, you and your family are enduring pain and suffering, and mental and emotional anguish. The catastrophe that resulted in your injuries could have been prevented, but was likely caused by a driver who was speeding, driving drunk or driving distracted. You and your family shouldn't have to suffer because of someone else's reckless behavior. Let the experienced attorneys at Farrow & Pulice fight to make you whole again.
