Nerve Damage After A Car Crash Personal Injury Lawyer
The human nervous system is incredibly sensitive, and sustaining head or neck injuries after an auto or truck accident is fairly common. Even a minor fender bender can leave you with Neuropathy, or nerve damage. After being injured in a car accident, no matter how severe, it is extremely important to contact a professional personal injury lawyer to evaluate your case. Insurance companies will try their hardest to save money on payouts, often at the victim’s expense. The road to recovery can be costly, especially with nerve damage — Combining the costs of medical bills on top of time away from work can severely hurt your bank account. It’s our job to ensure these companies pay what is owed in full.

Types of Neuropathy

The three most common types of nerve damage after a car accident are whiplash, lacerations, and blunt-force-trauma.

Car Accident Lawyers RBR Law - Car Accident Fatalities Drop Significantly in 2017 and 2018
According to The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, traffic casualties fell by 1.8% for all of 2017. This came as a welcome relief after the sharp rise in deaths in the past several years. The National Safety Council states that from 2014 to 2015, traffic fatalities rose 7%, which marked the steepest two-year increase in over 50 years. 2016 brought an additional increase of 7%.

These new reduced statistics could be attributed to a variety of factors, one of which is automobile technology. Vehicle manufacturers are making cars safer than ever before by adding more crash avoidance features. These new safety components will help warn motorists of a potential crash, or automatically slow down the vehicle. “We’re very hopeful that will continue to be part of a trend,” NHTSA Deputy Administrator Heidi King tells us.

Perry of Dallas, Texas, shares his Reyes Browne Reilley experience and level of satisfaction with our staff and customer service while helping him recover from damages stemming from a side swipe car wreck in Dallas.

“My name is Perry Mitchell. I was sideswiped by a gentleman that decided he wanted to run. And when the accident actually happened, it had– I sustained injury to my wrist and once calling 911 to get the officers there, I really didn’t know what to do. So I called Angel Reyes and Associates and they took on my case, sent me to my doctor, said I needed to go to. And it’s been I don’t know, probably been about two and a half years, but here I am today. The case has been won on my behalf I’m guessing. And it’s pretty much– without them I wouldn’t be sitting here today winning what I did win. Other than that, that’s pretty much basic story.”

bigstock-Car-Crash-Irony-4324875-1024x683Though vehicle crash fatality rates have been steadily creeping upward with more cars – and especially trucks – hitting the road in the post-recession years, today’s models aren’t scrimping on the safety features. As many as 10 airbags are spread around a new-vehicle’s cabin these days to provide maximum occupant protection in a collision, with a growing number of cars and trucks now offering advanced safety systems that can help drivers avoid getting into crashes in the first place.

But until perhaps all vehicles on the highway drive themselves, cars will still get into collisions, some due to weather conditions, others because of mechanical issues, but largely because of driver error. And while all vehicles are required to meet a set of complex federal safety standards and most cars get good grades in crash tests, as insurance loss statistics released by the Highway Loss Data Institute (HLDI) illustrate, some vehicles inherently protect their occupants better than others in a crash.

Raymond, of Dallas, Texas shares his experience and level of satisfaction with Dallas truck accident lawyers Reyes Browne Reilley while helping him recover from damages stemming from a car wreck in McKinney.

“Hello, my name is Raymond Jones. I was in an automobile accident approximately three and a half years ago, rear-ended by an 18-wheeler. We were impacted two times, my brother and I. I was driving the vehicle. My brother was in the passenger seat. We both suffered neck and head injuries. My neck and head injuries more or less cleared up with physical therapy. We were directed to a physical therapy company in McKinney, Texas by the lawyers here. My brother and I went through quite a bit of physical therapy. I ended up having the vagal nerve in my back pinched, which caused issues with my heart and lungs.
