At Averto Law Firm, an automobile accident attorney assigned to you will have handled many cases involving accident injuries such as whiplash, damage to your cervical, thoracic, or lumbar spine, broken bones, and even traumatic brain injury.

Here are a few details concerning the types of injuries that victims of auto wrecks often suffer:
Whiplash – Car accidents often involve injuries to the neck such as neck sprain, spasms, or cervicalgia. As a result, a whiplash injury may result in headaches, pain, spasms, stiffness, decreased range of motion, tenderness to trigger points, and even possible disc injuries.
Spinal injury or trauma – Rear end collisions or impact collisions may result in injuries to the cervical, thoracic, or lumbar spine (upper, middle, and lower spine). This may lead to disc bulges, disc protrusions, disc ruptures and even impingement of the nerves. In severe cases, spinal injuries may necessitate substantial treatment such as epidural steroid injections, disc surgery, or even spinal fusion surgery.
Broken bones – High impact wrecks and auto accidents may result in broken bones. Depending on the force, angle, and speed of impact, fractures to the hands, arms, legs, feet, face, neck and back may result. Because of the nature of these types of injuries, early diagnosis is critical as well as immediate treatment.
Head injuries – Head trauma or injuries are serious injuries that may damage the brain. Ranging from headaches, contusions, concussions, or permanent and traumatic brain injury, head injuries should be evaluated and diagnosed quickly to determine the best course of action for treatment. Debilitating brain injuries may necessitate life care plans that establish a future plan for treatment and care.
Death – Unfortunately, motor vehicle accidents can lead to fatal car crashes. These types of tragedies may require guidance for estate planning, end of life care, and appointment of a personal representative concerning the estate of the deceased.
