Common injuries that happen in car accidents

 David C. Sheldon handles car accident cases involving many of the most common personal injuries, which include:

  • Whiplash injuries - This term refers to neck pain following a car accident. A whiplash injury may include damage to the tendons, ligaments and muscles of the neck. We understand that whiplash injuries can be hard to diagnose because the damage rarely appears on X-rays. Finding, diagnosing and treating whiplash may require extensive testing and physical therapy. We have the experience to assist you.
  • Neck and back pain - We fight for compensation for these injuries to address the pain, suffering, medical bills and lost wages faced by clients suffering from neck and back pain. Some of the more common back and neck injuries include disc damage from compression, fractures, sprains and herniation.
  • Traumatic brain injury - The effects of traumatic brain injury are often devastating and life-changing. Injuries to the brain include skull fractures, hematomas, nerve damage and concussions. These injuries usually require extensive treatment and may lead to extended or permanent loss of wages.  That’s why we seek full and fair compensation.

The vast majority of personal injury cases settle before trial. However, today insurance companies and businesses devote more time and money defending cases due to recent legislation that limits damages and restricts recovery against multiple wrongdoers. We prepare each case with the anticipation it will eventually go to trial.
