Auto Accident Injuries and the Damages They Can Cause

Justice Admin Mar/17/2012

You should know that there is not always a direct relationship between the severity of the car accident and the seriousness of the injury. Major accidents usually cause major injuries and minor accidents often result in little or no injury.

  • Although Sarasota car accidents can cause many different injuries, to virtually any part of your body, these are the most common car accident injuries:

  • Facial and Head Injuries- such as a scrape, bruise, laceration, fracture, dental injury.

  • Brain Injuries – such as a concussion, post-concussion syndrome, closed head injury, traumatic brain injury.

  • Neck Injuries- such as a sprain, strain, whiplash, fracture, cervical radiculopathy, disc injury.

  • Shoulder and Arm Injuries – such as a laceration, sprain, strain, fracture, dislocation, rotator cuff injury.

  • Back Injuries – such as a sprain, strain, fracture, disc injury, thoracic spine injury, lumbar radiculopathy, lumbar spine injury.

  • Leg, Knee and Foot Injuries – such as a laceration, bruise, fracture, sprain, strain, dislocation, ligament injury, hip injury, knee injury, foot injury.

  • Psychological Injuries – such as a post traumatic stress disorder.

  • Death

You’ve probably heard about car crashes where a car was totaled but the driver . . . miraculously . . . walked away unharmed. And, you have also probably heard about the opposite situation, where a relatively minor car accident left a driver with injuries that caused a lifetime of problems. All car accident injuries are not obvious right away. Many are, of course. But some aren’t.

As a result of the trauma of the car accident, your body reflexively produces hormones called endorphins which are painkillers. Because of the excitement of the accident and the production of endorphins, you might not know right away that you have been injured.

So what should you do if you suspect that have been injured in a car accident?

You should be examined by a doctor if you have any symptoms of an injury during the first week or two after your car accident, even if it was a fairly low speed impact or a small damage collision.

Better safe than sorry. If you or someone you know has been in a auto accident and experiencing symptoms of injury, contact the Sarasota car accident lawyers of Goldman Babboni & Walsh for a free consultation.

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
