Every year, thousands of individuals are involved in an auto accident, with hundreds of deaths as a result.

What Should I Include in My Claim?
Every car accident case will differ from the next though there are many similarities between the types of injuries that victims suffer. If not treated promptly, the injuries can have a substantial impact on one’s health for quite some time. In fact, some of the symptoms may not even surface until many years later.
We have handled auto accident cases involving a wide number of injuries, such as:
Broken bones and fractures
Traumatic brain injuries
Spinal cord injuries
Psychological or emotional trauma
Whiplash and neck injuries
In car accidents involving no or minor injuries, some individuals may hesitate to hire an attorney to assist them. The fact of is, though, that having an attorney early on can ensure you are making the right decisions and prevent any mistakes. As an example, in Texas, the statute of limitations for filing an injury claim is two years, and you must file within that time period. A lawyer can ensure that all of the necessary paperwork has been filled out appropriately and filed by the deadline.
How Long Does Whiplash Last?
Whiplash is a common injury sustained in car accidents. In some cases the symptoms of whiplash, including neck pain, can be long-lasting. According to Cleveland Clinic, “a vast majority of neck pain goes away within a few days, and even more within three months. But studies show that between 12% and 50% of people still have persistent neck pain after a year.” Not only can car accidents leave you with neck pain but negligent drivers can cause lasting injuries that may impact your life. If you have experienced whiplash following an accident caused by the negligence of another driver or pedestrian, contact an attorney. We will help hold those responsible accountable.
