Types Of Injuries From Chicago Car Crashes

Almost any injury imaginable can happen when a person is involved in an auto accident. The shear size, weight and speeds involved can wreak havoc on the human body, breaking bones, damaging vital organs and even crush the victim. Even when nothing is broken or even lacerated, impacts can affect the spine and muscles, causing years of pain and suffering. Common injuries that occur from car accidents are:

  • Fractures. Broken bones or fractures are common in car accident injuries. Arms, hands and wrists are easily broken as the person tries to protect himself, while clavicle, rib and sternum fractures are common from impact.
  • Traumatic brain injuries. Half of all traumatic brain injuries are sustained in auto accidents. These injuries can have long-term and even permanent damage.
  • Spinal cord injuries. Auto and motorcycle accidents are the most common cause of spinal cord injuries. These can cause paralysis, both complete and incomplete, below the area of the injury.
  • Back and neck injuries. Strained muscles, compression fractures, and vertebrae injuries (disc herniations) are common in motor vehicle accidents, causing many types of back and neck problems.
  • Whiplash. Rear end collisions are the most common cause of whiplash. Persons suffering from whiplash can have pain and discomfort for years after the injury. (Read about back and neck injuries here)
Medical Costs for Auto Accident Injuries

The Center for Disease Control estimates that $99 billion was spent just in medical costs and loss of productivity costs in 2010 due to motor vehicle accidents. The long-term costs to the victims cannot always be weighed in dollars and cents. Many car accident survivors have permanent damage that can affect their quality of life and cause them anguish for the rest of their life.

Beyond medical costs, victims of motor vehicle accidents can receive compensation for: their lost wages, rehabilitation, surgery, medical devices and even pain and suffering. Anyone who has been injured in an accident, regardless of who was at fault, should retain an attorney to make sure they get the compensation that they are entitled to. Most injuries are covered through auto insurance policies and having an experienced car accident injury attorney can make a large difference in the amount of settlement they receive.

Client Reviews
Jonathan Rosenfeld was professionally objective, timely, and knowledgeable. Also, his advice was extremely effective regarding my case. In addition, Jonathan was understanding and patient pertaining to any of my questions or concerns. I was very happy with the end result and I highly recommend Jonathan Rosenfeld.
Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own. Ethan Armstrong, Google User
This lawyer really helped me get compensation for my motorcycle accident case. I know there is no way that I could have gotten anywhere near the amount that Mr. Rosenfeld was able to get to settle my case. Thank you. Daniel Kaim, Avvo User
Jonathan helped my family heal and get compensation after our child was suffered a life threatening injury at daycare. He was sympathetic and in constant contact with us letting us know all he knew every step of the way. We were so blessed to find Jonathan! Giulia, Avvo User
Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa, Avvo User
