Toronto Car Accident Lawyers Helping Those with Whiplash Injuries
Our firm recovers financial compensation for the injured
One of the most common injuries seen in car accidents is whiplash. It’s a painful injury that can prevent you from taking part in your usual activities. It may also cause you to miss time from work. When a negligent driver caused the accident that left you hurt, you deserve financial compensation, but recovering compensation can be a complicated process.
Negligent drivers typically deny responsibility for causing a crash. They may deny doing anything wrong and may even blame you. Don’t expect much help from insurance companies. They are mostly interested in protecting their profits. The experienced car accident lawyers at Smitiuch Injury Law fight for your rights.
During a crash, the force of impact can cause a person’s head and neck to suddenly jerk forward and backward. This causes the muscles, ligaments and tendons of the neck to stretch past their usual range of motion, resulting in a whiplash injury.
Symptoms may take as long as two days to appear. They can include pain in the neck, shoulder and upper back. Other symptoms may include neck stiffness, headaches and dizziness. Treatment may involve rest, physical therapy and the use of a foam collar to limit mobility. Recovery can take months.
Car accident lawyers serving injury victims throughout the GTA
We understand how a whiplash injury can impact your life. Your medical expenses for diagnosis and treatment can add up quickly. You may not be able to work, resulting in lost income. You may experience emotional and financial stress during this difficult time.
Insurance companies may not take your whiplash injury seriously. Or they may argue that your injuries existed before the crash. The insurance company may offer you a settlement soon after the accident, saying it’s the best that they can do. It will fall far short of covering the actual damages you have suffered.
Our car accident lawyers know all the tactics that insurance companies use to try to limit your compensation. We start by getting the facts. Our legal team investigates your crash and gathers evidence. We carefully review police reports, medical records and other documents. We interview witnesses. If needed, we consult accident reconstruction experts and other specialists.
