What To Know After An Accident: You Have Rights
Though car accidents sometimes involve a single vehicle, for the most part, the overwhelming majority of collisions are multivehicle, which means dealing with multiple insurance coverages and all the complexities that go along with that. Many accidents result from the negligence of one or more of the drivers involved. Distracted driving, drunk driving, speeding and intoxicated driving are all common contributing factors. Even if you were partly at fault for the accident, you may still be entitled to significant compensation.
The tragic reality is that most motor vehicle accidents cause major injuries or death. Your accident may have left you grappling with expensive medical bills, lost income, decreased standard of living, and pain and suffering. You deserve compensation for those losses. Attorney Steve Charles can help you get it.

More than half of all motor vehicle collisions cause some type of injury. In many cases, they are severe.
Common injuries sustained in car accidents include:
Head and brain injuries: Due to the nature of car accidents and how drivers and passengers are positioned, head and brain injuries occur at an alarming rate. They can include concussions, disfigurement, traumatic brain injuries (TBI), etc.
Neck injuries: The most common neck injury associated with car accidents is whiplash. This injury mostly affects the muscles and ligaments within a victim’s neck. Other injuries can include dislocated disks, disk herniation, a broken neck and others.
Spinal cord injuries: There is nothing simple about a spinal cord injury. In many cases, they require extensive rehab. In other cases, they can lead to permanent paralysis in parts of your body or complete paralysis.
Broken or fractured bones: Though a broken bone is not as serious as a traumatic brain injury, it can still cause victims to miss out on work, suffer immense pain and create expensive medical bills.
Cuts and bruises: Depending on the severity of a cut or bruise, it can have major implications on the life of a crash victim.
Burn injuries: Burn injuries range from a first-degree burn to a fourth-degree burn. They can lead to serious surgery, permanent disfigurement, nerve damage and an extensive recovery period.
