Automobile Accidents in Alabama

Injuries sustained in an auto accident

An automobile accident can change your life forever.  One minute, you are a fully-functioning, independent individual, and the next, you may have a lifelong handicap or disability.  Experienced automobile accident lawyers can help you seek financial recovery from the parties responsible for this serious misfortune.  Auto accidents are not always clean cut and the laws surrounding them can be complicated; therefore, you owe it to yourself to seek the assistance of a trusted Alabama car accident attorney.  Your lawyer can advise you on what to expect from the litigation process and what sort of settlement you may realistically expect.  Insurance companies and others involved in the accident will surely have lawyers arguing their positions, so it is best to have a team behind you as well who will make sure your rights are protected.
Common injuries that can be sustained in an automobile accident include:
Whiplash.  Often suffered in rear-end collisions, whiplash can result in permanent neck and back pain, as well as decreased mobility.  This injury is caused by the straining of the muscles, nerves, tendons, and ligaments in the neck.  Treatment generally includes wearing a soft cervical collar for several weeks, in addition to heat therapy, medication (including muscle relaxants), and ongoing physical therapy.
Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) and head trauma.  Neurological damage is among the most serious kind that can be caused by an auto accident.  The resulting impairment may be irreversible, with brain function considerably diminished.  If an independent lifestyle cannot be resumed, the victim can look forward to a lifetime of pain medications, physical and speech therapies, and the need for constant supervision.
Limb injuries.  Injuries to arms and legs can result in casting or months of rehabilitation; likewise, surgery may also be necessary in order for the victim to heal completely—if that is even possible.
Spinal Cord Injuries (SCIs) and harm to the neck and back.  A sudden impact or jolt to the vehicle can cause an SCI—with permanent disability often as a result.  Compression fractures in which one or more vertebra collapse may also result, and these injuries can only be corrected with expensive surgeries, lengthy convalescent periods and a reliance on medications.
Organ injuries.  Organs such as the liver, kidneys, lungs, pancreas and heart can sometimes be harmed during an accident when they are punctured by ribs fractured in the crash.  If not treated immediately, death may be the result.  Treatment for these injuries often involves surgery—or even the need for an organ transplant, if an organ was damaged beyond repair.
