Common auto accident Injuries
Every auto accident is different, which means every victim’s circumstances are also different. At Silverman, McDonald & Friedman, we’ve helped people with every kind of injury, from temporary to permanent, from minor to life-threatening. No matter how complex your case is, we offer comprehensive support for Delaware victims with:
- Spinal cord injury. The crushing impact of a car crash can do significant damage to the spine leaving you with permanent and life-altering injuries, pain, and disability.
- Traumatic brain injury. When your brain collides with the inside of the skull due to the forces at work in an auto accident, you can end up with a TBI, which can cause a devastating closed head injury that will have lasting effects on your life. A penetrating injury will also cause a TBI.
- Neck injuries. Even in a lower speed crash if your neck snaps forward and then back quickly you can end up with terrible pain, stiffness, and headaches. Commonly referred to as “whiplash,” this type of injury can cause permanent damage.
- Broken or fractured bones. Multiple broken bones can take months to mend and keep you from being able to work and take care of your family.
- Knee injury. The knee can be injured in a car crash from direct impact with the dashboard, the steering column or crushed in a side impact crash.
- Broken teeth and jaw injury. A mandibular fracture can occur in a car crash when there has been excessive force on the jaw, and surgery is often required to correct it.
- When there is a crash that erupts in flames, burns can create both physical and emotional trauma for the victim.
- In serious car crashes fatalities can often occur. When someone has died in a car crash that was caused by another’s negligence, the surviving family members may be able to bring a wrongful death action against the responsible party.
Some of these injuries – even the ones that seem minor at first glance – could develop into long-term medical conditions that negatively impact your life. For instance, chronic and crippling headaches often follow an auto accident and could require additional medical care and thus added medical expenses.
