About Car Accident Injuries

Carolyn, a car accident client of the firm.

If you have been injured in a car accident it is important to consult a Long Beach car accident attorney as soon as possible to protect your right to compensation for your damages. In order to determine what types of compensation should be claimed, it is important to have the injury case evaluated by our legal team at McGee, Lerer & Associates. Our husband and wife legal team has been assisting Long Beach residents for years and have developed a reputation for excellent legal representation in serious injury cases.

Common Car Accident Injuries

Car accidents commonly cause a number of different injuries. Defective vehicles or defective automotive components can cause injuries out of proportion to the amount of impact involved.

A car accident injury lawyer with our firm represents clients with injuries such as:

  • Head and face injuries - bruises, lacerations, fractures and broken bones, TMJ and other dental injuries
  • Foot, knee and Leg injury - laceration, fracture, sprain, dislocation, hip injury
  • Brain injuries - concussion, closed head injury, post-concussion syndrome, and traumatic brain injury
  • Neck injuries - strain, whiplash, fractures, cervical radiculopathy and disc injury
  • Shoulder and arm injuries - lacerations, strain, sprain, fracture, dislocation and rotator cuff injury
  • Back injuries - sprain, strain, fracture, disc injury, and spinal cord injury
  • Death

Delayed Injuries After A Car Accident

Some injuries do not manifest themselves immediately, which is why our legal team advises you have a medical exam immediately following an accident. Some injuries show up hours or days later. This is especially true of soft tissue injury such as whiplash.

If you need help finding medical care we can assist you with this. Our firm has a reputation for being a full-service law firm and giving personalized attention to a client's case and concerns.

Car Accident Injuries FAQ:

What is the most common injury in a car accident?

Soft tissue injuries are some of the most commonly sustained injuries in car accidents. This can include any type of muscle, ligament or tendon tear, sprain, bruise, etc. Whiplash is also considered a soft tissue injury and is very common in car accidents.

Can even a minor car accident cause injuries?

Even if the accident you were in resulted in minimal damage to your vehicle, that doesn't automatically mean that your body didn't suffer injury. Something as minor as a fender bender can result in whiplash or soft tissue injuries. It's always best to have a medical professional evaluate you after your accident to be sure.

How long will I be sore after a car accident?

Pain from minor sprains or bruises will usually dissipate after a week or two. If you are still experiencing pain after that length of time, this is a good indicator that your injuries may be more serious than previously thought. Following an accident, even if you feel fine, you should always have a medical professional check you for serious injuries.
