Auto Accidents

Auto accidents can happen to anyone, anytime.  Whether minor or catastrophic, they throw your life into sudden disarray and almost always mean unexpected expense.  In the worst cases, they can mean losing loved ones, permanent disability, and financial devastation.  After an accident, you need help right away, to get the bills paid and start putting your life back together.  We can help!

 

Damages

 

When you are injured in an auto accident, you can face overwhelming financial and personal loss.  You may be entitled to compensation for your losses including:

 

  • Current and future medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning potential
  • Permanent disability
  • Disfigurement
  • Vehicle repairs or replacement
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of companionship
  • Pain and suffering
  • Wrongful death

 

Soft Tissue Injuries

 

Injuries caused by auto accidents can range from very minor to deadly.  Some injuries, such as broken bones, are obvious and show up on X-rays or in regular medical exams.  However, it is very common for auto accidents, even low speed accidents, to cause soft tissue injuries.  These injuries are very difficult for doctors to detect, but can cause pain and disability which lasts a lifetime.  You may not even be aware of your injuries right away.  This is just one reason why you need the help of an experienced auto accident attorney.

 

Severe Injuries

 

Auto accidents can cause severe and/or disfiguring injuries with long-term or permanent consequences.  They can mean that you will never return to work or that if you can hold down a job again, you will never have the earning capacity that you previously enjoyed.  You may have to live with chronic pain, or physical, mental, and/or emotional disabilities which diminish your ability to enjoy your life.  Your injuries may even affect your relationship with your spouse and other loved ones.  Severe injures that may be caused by an auto accident include:

 

  • Brain injury
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Burn injury
  • Back injury
  • Neck injury
  • Amputation
  • Paralysis
  • Organ damage or loss
  • Coma
  • Death

 

When you are recovering from an accident, a lawsuit is usually the last thing you want to have to deal with.  However, it may be the only way that you and your family can get back on your feet, get the bills paid, pay for advanced medical care when needed, and in cases of permanent disability, the only way that you will be able to support your family in the future.  You must act quickly to preserve your legal rights.  Time limits do apply.

 

At William J. Tinning, P. C., we believe that every case is important, and no case is too small.  If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in any type of accident, please call or email us today to schedule your free consultation.
