Continue reading to learn the most commonly diagnosed physical injuries and emotional traumas after a car accident and how an experienced Landover auto accident lawyer at The Law Office of Conrad W. Judy III, LLC can help you work through yours.

What are the most commonly diagnosed physical injuries and emotional traumas after a car accident?

The types of physical injuries and emotional traumas you are diagnosed with may be heavily dependent on the circumstances surrounding your car accident event and its overall severity. Nonetheless, the most common examples read as follows:

  • Types of physical injuries typically injured after a car accident:
    • Broken or fractured arms, legs, hands, feet, etc.
    • Head injuries, ranging from concussions to traumatic brain injuries.
    • Neck injuries, ranging from whiplash to cervical vertebrae fractures.
    • Back injuries, ranging from pulled or strained muscles to herniated discs.
  • Types of emotional traumas typically incurred after a car accident:
    • Embarrassment with having to be seen out in public with your physical disfigurements.
    • Anxiety that hinders you from getting behind the wheel or inside a motor vehicle ever again.
    • Depression over how your physical injuries hinder you from returning to the life you once enjoyed.
    • Post-traumatic stress disorder that prompts flashbacks to the accident event, nightmares, insomnia, etc.

What actions should I take after receiving these diagnoses?

Not only might your injuries be physically taxing and your traumas emotionally taxing, but both may be financially taxing. Meaning that a slew of medical expenses, lost wages, and other economic damages may follow.

For this reason alone, you must not suffer from your physical injuries and emotional traumas in silence. Rather, we strongly urge you to take legal action. With a successful personal injury claim, the court may order the negligent driver, or otherwise the at-fault party of your car accident, to financially compensate you for these damages. Though it may not entirely make up for being made the victim of this life-altering accident event, it may help you better cope with it.

Further, with your claim, you must fight for a fair and just amount of monetary compensation. This is to say that you must take into account the future costs you may take on from your injuries and traumas. For example, your prescribed long-term care plan may take, on average, six months to one year to undergo. In a worst-case scenario, your treatment plan may be indefinite.

With this, it may be wise to employ a financial expert for your case. What’s more, you must remember that our team at The Law Office of Conrad W. Judy III, LLC has experience in handling cases just like yours. So please do not be afraid to reach out to a skilled Landover Maryland personal injury lawyer.
