What Are the Most Common Injuries in Accidents?
Because accidents can happen in all kinds of ways, they also can produce a variety of injuries that range from minor to catastrophic – from injuries that can cause you to miss a few days of work, to those that put you out of your line of work completely and require lifelong treatment.
Injuries that you can suffer from include:
- Cuts and abrasions
- Whiplash, a common injury sustained after a car accident
- Sprains and fractures
- Broken bones
- Neck and spinal cord injuries
- Brain and head injuries
- Mental trauma
- Loss of senses including eyesight and hearing
Even if your injuries aren’t serious, you still deserve to seek justice for what you’ve had to go through. We believe that those responsible for causing injuries should own up to their mistakes.
How We Can Help

- Pain and suffering
- Funeral costs (if your loved one passed away)
- Loss of income if your deceased loved one was providing for your family
