Car Accident Injuries
People who are injured in a traffic accident suffer all types of injuries including fractures, concussion, neck and back strain and lacerations. It’s crucial that they seek immediate medical attention and ongoing care for a full recovery.
“Medical treatments and physical therapy can be costly,” said Attorney James Johnson. “If you are a passenger or are not at fault for a crash, the responsible driver’s insurance company should pay for your financial and other losses including wages, pain and suffering and property damage.”
