Car accidents can result in serious injuries to drivers and passengers, including the following:
Traumatic brain injuries may result when a vehicle occupant hits their head on a hard surface, or the force of the impact is so severe it causes the brain to crash into the interior of the skull. These injuries can result in long-term effects to victims and impair a victim’s quality of life.
Some car accidents can result in catastrophic injuries that result in the loss of a limb, loss of a major bodily function, disfigurement, or other serious injury which can negatively impact a victim for years to come.
Soft Tissue Injuries
Soft tissue injuries can occur when muscles, tendons, or ligaments are torn during an accident. These injuries may not always appear on objective medical imaging tests, but they are often very painful to their victims.
Any bone can potentially break during a car accident, including the pelvic bone, hip, leg, arm, wrist, hand, etc.

- Texting while driving
- Passing another vehicle at a crosswalk
- Drinking and driving
- Turning left without looking for pedestrians
If someone’s negligence caused the death of your loved one in the same manner that a personal injury claim would have been viable against them, you may be able to file a wrongful death claim. The purpose of this type of claim is to seek justice against someone whose carelessness took your loved one’s life away.
While no amount of compensation can ever return your loved one to you, this type of claim may help ease some of the financial burden caused by the unexpected death of your loved one.
