Common Injuries in Car Accidents

As a law firm that represents seriously injured victims, our legal team at 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 can result in profound physical, financial, and emotional setbacks, victims have a right to hold at-fault parties responsible for their damages and seek the financial compensation they deserve.

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 catastrophic injuries:

  • 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 injuriesBurn 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 impairment.
  • Amputation – When physical injuries to the extremities are severe, victims may require 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.

There are numerous types of injuries victims commonly suffer in 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.
