Common Injuries And Causes

If you have been in a car accident, it is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible. While some injuries are apparent immediately, some may take days or even weeks to manifest themselves. At Glen A. Kurtis, P.C., I work with injuries that are the result of a car accident:

  • Fractures – Broken bones ranging from minor to severe, often requiring surgery or lengthy physical therapy.
  • Whiplash – Neck injuries caused by sudden head movement, with symptoms including pain, stiffness, and headaches.
  • Lacerations – Cuts and tears to the skin, potentially leaving scars or causing other complications.
  • Burns/Scarring – Burn injuries can cause significant pain, disfigurement, and long-term medical needs.
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) – Even seemingly mild concussions can lead to lasting cognitive, emotional, and behavioral changes.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries – Damage to the spinal cord can result in various levels of paralysis and life-altering conditions.
  • Truck and Motorcycle Accidents – These accidents pose a heightened risk of severe injuries due to differences in vehicle size and lack of external protection.
  • Wrongful Death – When a car accident leads to the tragic loss of a loved one, families may have legal recourse.

After a car accident, it can be difficult to pinpoint the exact cause, and there are often several factors contributing to an accident. Accurately identifying the cause of your accident is vital for building a strong case.  Factors can include, but are not limited to:

  • Driver Behavior – Distracted driving, speeding, intoxication, or recklessness often contribute to accidents.
  • Vehicle Malfunctions – Defective parts or poor maintenance can lead to accidents beyond the driver’s control.
  • Weather Conditions – Snow, ice, rain, and fog in New York present unique hazards, impacting visibility and road conditions.

Your Right to Compensation

If you’ve been injured in a car accident, you may be able to get compensation for different kinds of losses. New York law allows you to seek money for things like your medical bills, the income you missed from work, and the repair or replacement of your vehicle. You may also be entitled to compensation for the pain, suffering, and changes to your daily life caused by the accident. Figuring out what you’re truly entitled to can be challenging. As your lawyer, I’ll build a strong case on your behalf, and protect your best interests when dealing with insurance companies.
