We can help you understand your legal options and help you fight for fair compensation in the wake of your auto accident.
Common Car Accident Injuries
Due to the large size and weight of most motor vehicles, as well as the immense speeds at which they travel, cars often cause extensive damage when they collide with other automobiles, bicyclists, pedestrians, and fixed objects. Unfortunately, this means that auto accident victims often sustain severe, life-threatening injuries.
Some of the most common car accident injuries include:
- Accidental amputation
- Back injuries
- Broken bones
- Contusions (bruises)
- Cuts, scrapes, and lacerations
- Internal bleeding
- Neck injuries
- Organ damage
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Torn ligaments, muscles, and tendons
- Slipped discs, herniated discs, and ruptured discs
These and other serious injuries can lead to lasting impairments, lifelong disfigurement, and devastating disabilities that leave victims unable to return to work, care for themselves, or go back to what was once a normal life.
At Canan Law, we understand the far-reaching impact car accident injuries have, which is why our St. Augustine auto accident attorneys fight for maximum compensation for our clients. When we accept a case, we conduct an exhaustive investigation into what happened, often working alongside various industry experts, such as accident reconstructionists, medical professionals, economists, and others. This allows us to not only determine who was at fault for the accident and who is liable for your damages but also the true extent of your injuries and the impact they have had and will have on your life.
