Besides being costly, a Bucks County car accident can result in a variety of car accident injuries. Car accident injuries can range from minor to severe, leaving you or a loved one with a debilitating injury and unable to perform work-related duties.
Spinal injuries are common in car accidents. The soft tissues, or disks, are not equipped to handle an impact with another vehicle. Even at slow speeds, your spine is at risk of sustaining an injury. Many spinal injuries are not detectable without an MRI. Many car accident victims suffer from a herniated disk, which can require physical therapy.
Traumatic Brain Injuries
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one of the most serious types of car accident injuries and results from a blow to the head. Most commonly, a TBI results when the head collides with the steering wheel, windshield, side window, or the dashboard. If your head has been injured in a car accident, you need medical attention as soon as possible. Be sure to look for symptoms, such as:
- Memory loss
- Problems with your balance
- Persistent headaches
Other catastrophic injuries
Serious Bucks County car accident injuries are not simply limited to spinal injuries and traumatic brain injuries. Other types of injuries which can lead to a lifetime of pain and suffering include:
- Loss of limbs
- Broken bones
- Permanent scarring
- Damage to internal organs
Holding the other driver liable
No matter how safe a driver you are, you can’t always avoid a wreck. Your accident may have been the result of someone else’s negligence. An experienced Bucks County car accident attorney can help you hold that driver liable for your damages. They can help you build your case and get the compensation that you deserve
Dealing with the insurance company
Part of the process will involve dealing with the other driver’s insurance company. You will more than likely get a call from an insurance adjuster. Remember, they are not your friend and will not have your best interest in mind. Their goal is to pay you as little as possible.
