Injuries in Car Accidents

Injury Attorney for Irvine Car Accidents

Irvine Car Accident Lawyer

Any car accident, minor or severe, may cause injury to any party involved. A driver, passenger or non-occupant, such as a pedestrian or bicyclist, may experience physical injuries that will lead to hospitalization and exorbitant medical bills, missed work and the need for continued care. In these matters, it is helpful to discuss your right to seek financial compensation for your injuries with an Irvine injury attorney who understands how to handle these particular personal injury cases.

Types of Injuries: Car Accidents

There are a number of different injuries that may be sustained in a car accident. Though the type and severity may vary depending on the particular collision, we have included some of the most common types of physical injuries below:

  • Whiplash
  • Neck or back injury
  • Head trauma
  • Seatbelt injury
  • Airbag deployment injury
  • Brain injury
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Broken bones
  • Internal organ damage

The crashworthiness of your vehicle is one factor that may greatly influence the severity of injury you sustain. In some cases, your lawyer may discover that a defective auto part actually contributed to your injuries, and in these matters you may be able to seek financial compensation from the manufacturer. For example, in a rollover accident if it is discovered that the roof of your vehicle caved in because it was poorly designed, this may provide you with grounds to sue for spinal cord injury you sustained as a result. This is just one example; the particular circumstances may vary.
