Head and Neck Injuries in Car Accidents

MIAMI CAR ACCIDENT ATTORNEY SERVING HEAD AND NECK INJURY CLAIMS 

The number of injuries as a result of a car accident can range from minor bumps and bruises to breaks and surgical intervention. That is why Perazzo Law and its professional staff of Personal injury car accident attorneys in Miami recommend seeking our legal advice following bodily injury in a car accident in Miami and any of the cities and suburbs we serve in Miami-Dade and Broward counties.  See Cities We Serve.

Head and Neck injuries are very common in car accidents that happen in Miami. Perazzo Law reminds car accident victims that suffer head or neck injuries that these types of injuries require immediate medical attention. That's why Perazzo Law recommends that car accident victims that suffer blows to the head request that rescue units take them to a local healthcare facility to rule-out injuries following a car accident in Miami. A head injury can include facial injuries caused from shattered glass or impact with one of the interior parts of the vehicle such as the airbag. Facial injuries can result in cuts, bruises or lacerations which can lead to permanent scars. Permanent scars can effect a car accident victim's life and cause mental trauma if the scar produces a significant change in the car accident victim's personal appearance. Loss of vision can also be linked to head injuries from a car accident. Perazzo Law serves head, facial, and neck injuries for their personal injury car accident clients and strives to make sure they receive the compensation they deserve for their injuries and losses.

Perazzo Law Shares Information on the Main Injuries Suffered in Car Accidents

HEAD INJURIES

Rear and front-end collisions can have serious long term effects on the lives of those that suffer an accident which causes head injuries such as cuts, bruises, concussions, or internal bleeding. Blows to the head can lead to brain trauma and most often results in serious or permanent injuries that may require short-term medical treatment and long-term use of medications, which impact other bodily organs such as the liver, kidneys, pancreas, intestines, and mental states of mind in general. Head injury can be a determining factor in the life quality of the victim and it is vital to hire an experienced Personal Injury attorney who knows and understands the life altering effects that head injuries can have on accident victims. Some of the most serious head injuries from car accidents can result in a number of long-term effects such as: headaches, blurred vision, dizziness, mood swings, tingling sensations  in the arms and finger tips, as well as general damage to the nervous system. When head injuries from a car accident are very severe, there may be internal bleeding and surgery will most likely be required. Brain surgery is a very sensitive procedure as well as very costly. Most often, the surgical results to the head trauma accident victim may be successful and the effects minimal, but other times, the effects of brain surgery can have permanent effects on the accident victim's life. See Brain Trauma

NECK AND BACK INJURIES

Following a collision with another vehicle, crashing into a solid object, or even spinning out of control and slamming into a light pole, the neck and back area can experience injury to the neck and back area. Commonly known as whiplash, (when the neck violently jerks forward and back causing disc injury) the neck and back are quite sensitive and prone to injury as a result of an accident. Perazzo Law knows that thousands of people are injured in car accidents every year in Miami and that most times the neck and back are the parts of the body that many times go unattended to. That is why, Perazzo Law offers the most professional legal advice and assistance to help deal with and attend to bodily injury that includes the neck and back. The neck is a very sensitive part of the body as it is comprised of nerves and discs that help control the nervous system together with the brain. When discs in the neck and/or back suffer injury, the physical effects can many times be permanent and expensive, not only due to adjustments in the person's life style, but also to the any treatment or medication needed to deal with the accident victim's neck and back injuries. In some more serious neck and back injuries as a result of a car accident, the victim may be paralyzed and require long-term physical treatment and medication that will have a lasting effect on the victim's quality of life. Perazzo Law urges neck and back injury accident victims to contact our Miami or North Miami Beach offices for a Free initial consultation to find about more about compensation through a personal injury accident claim. See Spinal Cord Injuries

FRACTURES AND BROKEN BONES

Fractures and broken bones can be consider permanent injuries even though fractures heal and broken bones can be mended. However, many times, a broken bone can leave remnants of the injury and never fully heal appropriately. No matter if the fracture involves a finger, toe, or nose, the effect can be permanent. More serious fractures and breaks can include more sensitive areas such as arms, legs, ankles or the pelvis, which may lead to a person never being able to walk again or take part in certain sporting or recreational activities such as sports or dancing. Depending on a person's age, a broken bone can take weeks or months to fully heal. Elderly people may require more intense and prolonged medical care and rehabilitation to help broken bones or fractures to heal following a car accident. Perazzo Law urges car accident victims that have suffered fractures or broken bones to contact our Miami or North Miami Beach offices ONLINE or CALL 888-PERAZZO for a FREE initial consultation to discuss their case. Our entire legal staff is fully dedicated to fighting for our clients rights and make sure that they receive just compensation for their injuries and losses. 

BURNS AND ABRASIONS

Though not all car accidents result in severe injuries such as head injuries or life altering effects, many do include bruises, cuts, burns, or abrasions, which can leave permanent scaring. Though cuts, burns, and bruises heal, some more serious injuries can cause aesthetic complications when injuries involve the face, hands, or arms. Facial scars last forever and this can greatly alter a person's life, even after cosmetic surgery has been performed on the accident victim's injuries. Airbags can sometimes cause burns and abrasions. In this case, an experienced personal injury attorney will determine the cause of the airbag deployment, which can be from impact, manufacture defect, or third party negligence. See Airbag Injuries

WRONGFUL DEATH

Wrongful death accidents are by far the most devastating accidents for the family members and loved-ones of the accident victim. Collisions with trucks or at high speeds most often end in tragedy, with injuries that go beyond any immediate medical attention. In most wrongful death accident cases, head and thorax trauma is too severe and the victim's life cannot be saved. In wrongful death accident cases, Perazzo Law knows that proving fault is vital to obtaining compensation for the family of the wrongful death accident victim. See Wrongful Death Accidents
