Have You Been Injured in an Accident?

At Erskine & McMahon LLP, we know how mentally and physically painful car accidents can be. Motor vehicle accidents are one of the leading sources of injury in the United States, causing almost 10% of all injury-related visits to the emergency room, according to Dignity Health. If you were in an accident, you’ve likely suffered some type of injury. If so, we encourage you to contact us for legal help to pursue the compensation you deserve.

Possible Injuries

The types of injuries sustained in a crash typically depend on the sort of car accident you were involved in. For example, if your vehicle was rear-ended you likely sustained neck damage. Crashes that involved impact to the front of your vehicle likely triggered the airbags and could have caused chest injury. Impact coming from the side of the car could have hurt your arms or legs, whereas a crash that broke the windshield could have resulted in more bruises and open wounds.

Common Types of Injury Include:

  • Neck strains and sprains, or “whiplash”
  • Back strains and sprains
  • Head injuries
  • Bruises or contusions
  • Chest injuries (usually severe bruising)
  • Fractures to the arms and legs
  • Open wounds

Some car accident injuries do not show obvious symptoms immediately, or even a few days after the crash.
