The Most Common Types of Car Accidents and Injuries That Result From Them
The Dangers Of A Motor Vehicle Collision – Maximizing Your Compensation
Traffic collisions claim lives or injure more people than in any other type of accident in the United States. The insurance industry pays out an enormous amount to car accident victims for property damage and medical treatment, and insurance companies work hard to minimize the costs of paying out claims.
A car accident is a frightening experience no matter how badly you are hurt. At McCoy & McCoy, we represent people injured in car accidents across Connecticut, including injured passengers, and help them receive the monetary compensation they deserve for the physical injuries as well as emotional and mental suffering following any type of car accident. We can help you maximize compensation for past, present, and future damages and losses.
Many victims of car accidents do not know where to turn for legal advice when injured in an accident. We offer competent legal advice to personal injury victims, and our goal is for our clients to receive full and fair compensation for their injuries. Our reputation, built on trust and professional legal services to our clients on a personal level, has earned us a prominent position in the field of personal injury law firms.
Our principal lawyer, Frank McCoy Jr., is certified in civil trial law by the National Board of Trial Advocacy – a distinction that fewer than 0.5 percent of all Connecticut lawyers have earned.
Common Injuries Suffered In Connecticut Car Accidents
Car crashes can result in a wide range of injuries, some causing temporary or permanent disabilities. The most common injuries can include:
- Severe whiplash, fractures, amputations
- Traumatic brain injury, internal organ damage
- Spinal cord injuries, paraplegia, quadriplegia (paralysis)
- Burns, coma, death
- Head and neck trauma
- Back injuries
Injuries from a car accident can require prolonged hospitalization and long-term rehabilitation. An income earner in a household who misses work may place financial hardship on family members.
Before settling an insurance claim, seek legal advice from an experienced lawyer with McCoy & McCoy who can evaluate an insurance claim and help with possible additional monetary compensation.
A negligent or careless driver who causes an accident with injuries or fatalities may be liable to the victims for damages of lost income, medical bills, and pain and suffering. Our lawyers are skilled in dealing with insurance companies and demand payment of monetary compensation for the injuries and suffering of car accident victims.
