Car Accident Injury Lawyer in Fort Worth
We can help if you suffered whiplash or a brain injury
Fort Worth car accident injury attorney Coby L. Wooten understands that roads and highways across the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area can be dangerous places for drivers. After you’ve been involved in a car accident, you might find your life turned upside down due to your injuries. You may be unable to work, provide for your family, or participate in activities you once enjoyed. At the same time, you might face rising medical bills and other expenses from physical therapy. Insurance companies might shrug off painful and debilitating injuries – such as a neck injury like whiplash – as minor.
It’s important to get medical attention as soon as possible if you’ve been in an accident, even if you feel OK. You could have delayed pain which is a sign of injuries that aren’t yet showing any symptoms. A doctor can diagnose any injuries you do have and begin immediate treatment. These injuries will also be documented, which can help when you are seeking compensation.
What are common car accident injuries in Fort Worth?
While there are many types of injuries that can occur in motor vehicle accidents, some are much more common than others. Unfortunately, some of the most common injuries are some of the most severe. The severity will depend on whether you suffered from a low or high impact injury as well as other factors.
Car accidents don’t have to be catastrophic to create a serious injury case. Drivers and passengers involved in a rear-end collision or head-on collision might sustain a debilitating back or spinal cord injury. A pedestrian or bicycle accident might result in broken bones or fractures to the arms, wrists, legs, ribs, back or hips. Other common types of car accident injuries include:
- Cuts and bruises
- Internal injury
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Face injuries
When it comes to your personal health, you can’t afford to take chances. Even a seemingly “minor” injury can turn out to be much more serious than originally thought. In some cases, you might not even feel pain for weeks after your accident. That’s why it’s important to visit an emergency room or doctor immediately after you’ve been involved in a crash. The true extent of some auto accident injuries are not realized until long after the accident occurred. The injuries sustained from your car accident can have a long-term impact on your life.
Your injuries may require diagnostic tests, imaging tests, surgery, hospitalization, medication, visits to a chiropractor, physical therapy and months of follow-up appointments with doctors. There may also be the need for medical devices and home health care. Some injuries may be so severe that they require surgery. Medical expenses can add up quickly and soon become overwhelming.
How a Fort Worth car accident injury lawyer can help
The days, weeks, and months after a car accident can be frightening and confusing. Not only might you find yourself facing skyrocketing medical bills and lost wages after your injuries leave you unable to work. Even worse, the negligent driver who caused your car accident – and his or her insurance company – might try to deny responsibility for the crash. That’s not fair. Contact Coby L. Wooten, Attorney at Law, P.C. today.
Our legal team investigates your crash to get the facts about what happened. We gather evidence, including any video evidence from traffic cameras. We identify and interview witnesses. We carefully review accident reports and medical records. If needed, we consult accident reconstruction experts and other specialists.
Our attorneys build strong cases that insurance companies can’t simply ignore. We know the tactics they use to try to minimize your compensation. They’ll question the seriousness of your injuries or try to argue that they were pre-existing. Sometimes they’ll offer you a settlement – one that falls far short of covering the damages you suffered.
We don’t put up with those tactics designed to pay you less. We understand the impact an injury can have on you physically, emotionally and financially. Our attorneys are determined to help you recover the financial compensation you deserve, whether that’s through a negotiated car accident settlement or a jury verdict.
