vehicular accidents

In addition to causing some 3,000 fatalities, traffic accidents injure more than 250,000 men, women and children every year in Florida. Those who have been victimized in traffic crashes and are considering legal action against the responsible parties can find the legal representation they need from the law firm of Mandelbaum, Fitzsimmons, Hewitt & Cain. These are the most common injuries stemming from vehicular mishaps:

Soft Tissue Damage
Whiplash is a common injury in traffic crashes, particularly rear-end collisions. The injury may not be initially recognized but can later produce pain in the neck area and other symptoms, including fatigue. Other soft tissue injuries include sprains. The victims of such injuries can benefit from the services of a Tampa car accident lawyer.

External Injuries
Abrasions and lacerations are common in accidents involving automobiles, motorcycles and pedestrians. Serious external injuries will require immediate medical attention and the victims themselves may need monetary compensation. This is when a Brandon car accident attorney can be of assistance.

Broken Bones
Vehicular wrecks often involve high impact forces, which can fracture ribs and the bones in fingers, wrists, arms and legs. A Tampa car accident lawyer can help when such injuries prevent the victims from carrying out their daily tasks.

Head Trauma
A traumatic brain injury can result from either a blow to the head or from an actual penetration of the skull. A head injury that may not seem serious can still have long-term effects. These victims will often need monetary compensation, which a Brandon car accident attorney can help them obtain.

Emotional Injuries
Those who are badly hurt and even those who escape serious physical harm may suffer from emotional trauma after a car accident. No matter the injury, the law firm of Mandelbaum, Fitzsimmons, Hewitt & Cain can be of assistance.
