Tom Rhodes Law Firm P.C. understands the potential car accidents have in creating devastating consequences
for victims and their loved ones. While injuries sustained in auto wrecks

At Tom Rhodes Law Firm P.C., we have cultivated a reputation for securing
the results seriously injured victims need to put their lives back together.
These include many positive case results in a range of car accidents,
including those resulting in some of the following common serious and
Brain Injuries – Traumatic
brain injuries are well known for being unpredictable in nature. Victims in auto accident
suffer brain injuries that may range from mild concussions to severe trauma
that results in unconsciousness and a severe decline in cognitive abilities.
Regardless of the severity of an initial impact that cause the injuries,
TBIs can create numerous symptoms that limit victims’ abilities
to handle daily tasks, work, and enjoy their lives.
Spinal Cord Injuries – Some of the most tragic injuries sustained in auto wrecks include
those to the neck and spine. When the spinal cord is injured, victims
often face slow and painful recoveries, as well as risks of facing
paralysis, permanent impairment, and mobility limitations. When these injuries occur,
victims have elevated needs for their future care and medical needs.
Burn injuries –
Burn injuries are common in car accidents that are followed by subsequent fires, especially
when victims are unable to flee their vehicles due to damage or physical
injuries. They may also occur as a result of defective products, including
defective airbags. Because burn injuries can quickly become severe, victims
may face lengthy and painful recoveries, as well as disfigurement and
Amputation – When physical injuries to the extremities are severe, victims
amputation of their arms, legs, hands, or feet. The loss of a limb is considered
a catastrophic injury, as it alters the lives of victims in profound ways
– often complicating their ability to navigate the daily demands
of live, earn a living, and enjoy the things they once did.

car accidents, and while the severity and impact of those injuries varies from case
to case, their needs for full and fair compensation do not. By working
with experienced attorneys like those at our firm, victims and their families
can gain the support they need to hold negligent drivers and parties accountable
for causing preventable harm, and liable for the damages they caused.
