Common Head and Neck injury situations from car accidents in Miami:
- I was rear-ended and my neck began to hurt after the accident.
- My car was crashed into from the side and I injured my head upon impact with the window.
- The car in front of me suddenly stopped and I suffered a severe neck injury.
- What are some of the symptoms related to neck injuries following a car accident?
- How much will it cost to treat common head, neck, or shoulder injuries after a car accident?
The statements and questions above are common when a driver or passenger has been involved in a traffic accident. Car accidents that result in Head and Neck injuries are very common and the Perazzo Law Firm reminds car accident victims that suffer head or neck injuries that these injuries require immediate medical attention. That's why the Perazzo Law Firm
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. 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. After a head injury, the injured party may request a CT scan to rule out any internal damage to the brain, especially if the car accident victim suffering a head injury loses consciousness or shows signs of bleeding.
Facial Injuries Can Include:
- Cuts, bruises, lacerations
- Eye injuries
- Ear injuries
- A broken nose
- A broken jaw
- A busted eye-socket
- A cracked cheek bone
These severe facial injuries will most likely require medical intervention, rehabilitation, medical costs and perhaps lost wages for freelance workers. Perazzo Law strives to achieve full-client satisfaction by catering to their legal needs and providing constant updates on their case while fighting for the compensation they deserve. Facial injuries may be considered permanent injuries if the injuries require medical intervention such as stitches or plastic surgery. A deep cut for example, may leave a scar, which depending the location on the accident victim's face, may be difficult to overcome. Car accident victims that suffer facial injuries should consult our professional staff of personal injury lawyers to find out more about a possible claim for compensation to cover both medical fees and any psychological anguish.
Common Head Injuries Can Include:
- Blurred vision
- Temporary loss of hearing
- Brain Injury or Damage
- Temporary Paralysis
- Internal Hemorrhaging
Neck Injuries Can Include:
- Disc Damage
- Long-term physical complications
- Memory loss
- Spinal Cord Injury
Whatever the head or neck injury suffered in a car accident, in Miami, the Personal Injury Staff at the Perazzo Law Firm urges accident victims to seek professional medical attention for an evaluation of any possible internal injury to the neck area, which tend to manifest themselves over time and sometimes not immediately. A professional medical evaluation should include a C-scan or MRI to determine if the neck and cervical spine have suffered damage due to the car accident.
The Perazzo Law Firm shares information on some of the most common injuries after a car accidents
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 important to hire a dedicated Personal Injury attorney that has the experience and knows about the life changing effects that injuries to the head 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
Following a collision with another vehicle, crashing into a fixed 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. Radiculopathy
is a common injury due to 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 Firm 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, the Perazzo Law Firm 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.

FRACTURES AND BREAKS
Fractures and broken bones can be considered 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 Firm 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 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 Firm knows that proving fault is vital to obtaining compensation for the family of the wrongful death accident victim. See Wrongful Death Accidents
