A motor vehicle accident can have a devastating impact on your life. Unfortunately, more than 500 people are injured as a result of crashes that occur every day in our state. Although many victims suffer minor injuries that simply inconvenience their day, there are a significant number of people who require hospitalization and extensive care for the injuries they have suffered.
We see many victims of car crashes left with internal organ injuries, trauma to the head, and severe compound fractures. These and other injuries can have a devastating impact on the health and well-being of the victim.
