Automobile, truck, and motorcycle collisions can cause devastating long term damages from physical injuries, medical costs, lost work, and a lingering inability to enjoy life following the collision, even when bones are not broken and damages may not be immediately obvious.
Collisions involving semi-trucks cannot be handled like a routine car crash. Not only are the forces and damages caused by these collisions greater than a typical car accident, the complexity of the state and federal regulations must be understood, and the insurance coverage options must be fully investigated.
Insurance defense lawyers have access to investigators and experts that specialize in defending automobile and truck collision cases. Worrell Durrett Gavrell attorneys have experience with these sorts of accidents, and can provide the investigation and analysis necessary to maximize clients' recoveries.
Even in “minor fender benders,” severe neck, back, and even brain injuries often occur. All collisions, and every client’s injuries, are unique. WDG attorneys have represented victims of collisions who have suffered serious injuries, including everything from herniated disks, broken spinal bones, impinged spinal nerves, and cognitive injuries and brain injuries, to broken legs, arms, and wrists, headaches, vision problems, hearing problems, pain and numbness of extremities and strained neck muscles.
Many drivers have weakened backs, but when these latent injuries are aggravated by the intense forces in play in an auto collision, back injuries are often exacerbated up and become symptomatic. The sudden onset of neck and back injuries following collisions often create considerable costs and lost income as the driver seeks relief through medical procedures that may include everything from physical therapy to chiropractic work to major surgeries.
In addition to the physical injuries and costs of medical treatment, damages from an auto collision also may include lost work immediately following the collision, and the loss of the ability to continue to work, or to proceed with plans for a new career. Other damages can include an inability to continue with an active sports life, a change in relationships, and the general loss of the ability to enjoy life as before the collision. Without an attorney’s assistance, victims of vehicular accidents who opt for a quick settlement with an insurance company might not fully recover their damages, or may even render themselves ineligible for reimbursement for long-term care if latent injuries manifest later. Worrell Durrett Gavrell attorneys have experience with claims arising from:
- Major truck accident cases resulting in serious injuries, permanent disabilities, or death.
- Automobile accidents resulting in serious injuries and permanent disabilities, including rear end collisions, head on collisions, and injuries to passengers.
- Motorcycle accidents resulting in serious closed head injuries
