Series Injuries from Automobile Accidents

Automobile accidents can cause severe injuries that have permanent, life-altering consequences. Croydon automobile attorney John M. Kenney has experience getting the victims of automobile accidents the best settlement possible and knows that each victim's injuries impact their lives in a different way. No two injuries are the same and an automobile accident attorney needs to know about different injuries.

Traumatic Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries account for more than one-half of all injuries suffered as a result of automobile accidents. A traumatic brain injury can occur when an object violently slams into someone's head or a person strikes their head on an object like the windshield of a car or the cement of the highway. Wearing a seatbelt lessens one's chances of receiving traumatic brain injury from their head striking the windshield or being thrown from the car.

Whiplash

Whiplash is the pain that is caused when the head is sharply thrust back as a result of being struck from behind in an automobile accident. The unique characteristic of whiplash is that it sometimes doesn't present itself for several days after the injury occurs. People can walk away from an automobile accident like nothing has happened only to find themselves unable to move or even get out of bed days later.

Paralysis

It is not uncommon for violent automobile accidents to cause broken, bruised or fractured spinal cords that result in temporary or even permanent paralysis. Paralysis can be either partial or total depending on the point in the back or neck where the break occurred. Broken necks can result in total paralysis.

These are just a few of the many types or traumatic injuries that could cause you to have exceedingly heavy medical bills. These injuries often require many surgeries and ongoing physical rehabilitation and training. The above injuries could cause you to lose your job and thus your source of supporting your family, not to mention the years of painful treatments, surgeries, and rehabilitation. Croydon automobile accident attorney John M. Kenney has represented many clients that have had traumatic injuries caused by the negligence and recklessness of another driver. He will stand by your side to see to it that you get the compensation for your medical expenses and pain and suffering that your deserve.
