Car accidents often cause serious and sometimes fatal injuries. The extent of injuries will depend upon many factors including how fast the cars were going and what type of crash has occurred. Head on and side impact accidents are usually the most dangerous in El Paso, but serious problems can arise after any car accident. When a crash does cause harm, Brandon L. Lettunich, Attorney at Law, can help.
Common Injuries in Car Accidents
Brandon L. Lettunich, Attorney at Law, represents people in El Paso with all different kinds of injuries, ranging from mild to severe. While there are many different kinds of injuries which happen after car accidents, some of the most common injury types include soft tissue injuries, head injuries, neck injuries, broken bones, spinal cord damage, and traumatic brain injury. A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can happen even if you do not strike your head on anything. The force of the crash can result in your brain striking into your skull, which can cause bleeding or bruising of the brain.
Getting Help With Injuries After Car Accidents
After car accidents occur in El Paso, it is important to get medical help as soon as possible so all car accident injuries can be diagnosed. Getting an accurate diagnosis is essential because victims who wish to pursue a car accident claim will need to be able to prove their injuries are related to the crash. Some of the common car accident injuries are not always symptomatic immediately after an accident happens. As a result, victims may not know they have whiplash or a brain injury until a comprehensive medical exam or until hours or days after an accident happens. Once the full extent of car accident injuries is known, Brandon L. Lettunich, Attorney at Law can help crash victims get compensation for losses. Contact us today!
