Car Accidents in California
A traffic accident can have an overwhelming impact on your life. Unfortunately, hundreds of thousands of collisions are reported every year in California. There are many instances where people are left with severe injuries that impact their lives forever. Common injuries reported in car crashes across our state include:
- Paralyzing spinal cord injuries: injuries to the spinal cord can be especially debilitating. These injuries often cause the victims to be paralyzed and unable to walk ever again. In some cases, victims may lose the ability to use their hands and arms as well.
- Debilitating brain injuries: low brain injuries can be especially devastating due to the fact that they impact a victim’s motor skills, memory, hearing, and vision in some cases. These injuries are incredibly painful and can have a permanent impact on the victim’s life.
- Facial injuries: it is all too common to see people suffer from severe cuts and lacerations to the face, orbital fractures, and even broken jaws as a result of accidents.
- Broken bones or the loss of limbs: breaking a bone in a motor vehicle accident is unfortunately common. We see many people break their arms, legs, hands, and feet in accidents. In severe cases, victims may even lose their limbs due to the severity of the fracture.
