You will benefit from counsel provided by experienced lawyers if you have been in a serious auto accident. Unfortunately, many insurance providers and claims adjusters will try to take advantage of victims who don’t have legal representation. In most cases, an insurance provider isn’t going to look out for a victim’s best interests. Without consulting with an experienced lawyer, it’s very unlikely that a victim will come out ahead financially, after a serious accident.
Our team is here to answer all of your questions. If you hire us to represent you, there will be no advanced payments or upfront fees required. In the end, if you don’t recover anything, you won’t owe us. We work on a contingency fee basis and are here to get you the best results possible.

Common Automobile Accidents
Below, you’ll find information concerning many of the common types of cases we handle on a daily basis.
This type of accident will occur when a driver collides with a car in front of them. This accident can be minor in nature, or very severe. The severity of the accident will often depend on the speed at which the other vehicle was moving, in addition to the specific circumstances in which the accident occurred. In many instances, the driver of the automobile that rear-ended the other vehicle is at fault. These collisions will usually occur when one driver is following another too closely.
These accidents are also commonly referred to as T-bone collisions. When this type of accident occurs, one vehicle is hit by the rear or front of another vehicle. In many cases, this type of broadside collision can result in severe injuries for both drivers.
When a vehicle is sideswiped one side of the vehicle is hit by another, usually while both vehicles are traveling in the same direction. A driver failing to check their blind spot prior to making a lane change is the most common cause of a sideswipe accident. If at a lower speed, this type of collision may result in minor cosmetic damage. When traveling at a higher speed, the injuries can be severe.
When two vehicles collide directly with each other when traveling in opposite directions it’s referred to as a head-on collision. Even at a lower speed, this type of automobile accident can result in serious injuries or death.
Single Automobile Accidents
With a single vehicle accident, only one car will be involved and it can be a direct result of a vehicle veering off the motorway or colliding with a stationary object. This type of accident can also be caused by a driver error that results from fatigue or intoxication, or it can occur as a result of certain external factors such as inclement weather or unsafe road conditions.
This accident can occur when one car is overturned as the result of a departure from the roadway or a collision. These accidents are usually severe and result in serious injuries or death.
Hit and Run
A hit and run accident can involve any type of accident in which a driver is involved in a collision and tries to flee the scene.
Common Injuries Sustained in an Automobile Accident
Automobile accidents are among the most common cause of personal injury in America. Each year, over five million accidents occur in the country. While car manufacturers are continuing to implement features that are life-saving in their new releases each year, injuries caused by vehicle collisions still remain a serious risk to motorists. Below, you’ll find a list of many of the common personal injuries that are a result of an automobile accident.
Whiplash is one of the most common injuries sustained in an automobile accident. This spinal injury occurs when an impacted car causes the driver’s head to be thrown to the side, backward, or forward. The velocity of these movements can cause severe strain on the ligaments and muscles of the upper back and neck.
Over time, many cases of whiplash will resolve themselves, yet there are some instances in which this type of injury can be permanently disabling. Additionally, the trauma linked with the collision can cause a wide range of damage to the lower and upper back, as well as the soft tissues. In some cases, whiplash can be associated with skeletal trauma or a herniated disc. Long recovery periods are common in these cases and can require ongoing treatment in the form of long-term pain management, physical therapy, or surgery.
Severe injuries to the spine are also common and considered one of the most expensive automobile accident injuries to treat. Significant trauma to the spine can cause death, or total or partial paralysis. In some patients, this type of injury cannot be fully corrected, which results in a permanent disability that prevents the victim from engaging in everyday activities, their ability to care for themselves, and their inability to work.
Head and Brain Trauma
Almost twenty percent of traumatic brain injuries in America are caused by automobile accidents. Traumatic brain injuries, or TBIs, can occur when a rapid movement of the skull forces the brain to collide with the hard surface of the skull. This injury can cause soft tissue damage to the brain. This can result in bleeding of the brain, swelling, and extensive bruising, in addition to other severe conditions, including minor to major skull fractures. In most cases, the victim will experience visible symptoms or immediate unconsciousness. But for some, the damage caused may be difficult to diagnose since the victim does not experience any symptoms of the damage until several weeks later.
Other Auto Accident Related Injuries
Other common automobile accident related injuries can include:
- Broken bones
- Minor and serious sprains
- Facial injuries
- Psychological injuries
